Olson’s, again, receives high honors

The Enumclaw business received several top awards for its products.

The crew from Olson’s Meats and Smokehouse continued its winning ways during this year’s competition staged by the Northwest Meat Processors Association.

The Enumclaw operation, owned by Gregory and Marcia Olson, is closing in on two decades of operation, serving customers from the same location on state Route 164.

During this year’s convention in Anacortes, the Enumclaw shop received a pair of grand champion honors for its fermented summer sausage and jerky; champion honors were received for specialty dry-cured meats and sausage; and reserve champion honors were for Olson’s snack sticks and rasher bacon.

There were more than 200 entries in the competition, from markets in Washington, Oregon, Montana and Idaho.
