Jake Sailer

Jake Sailer joined the family company, Sailer’s Food Market & Meat Processing Inc., to work with his father at 23 years old. Now the company is celebrating 95 years in business. It has gained acclaim since Sailer — now the company’s owner at age 46 — started submitting its products to competitions and racking up awards. In 2012, Sailer graduated as a member of the inaugural class of University of Wisconsin–Madison’s Master Meat Crafter Training Program. Although he already had experience working in the business, the program helped connect the pieces of his day-to-day work. Sailer continues to learn and uses his knowledge to instruct others in surrounding communities.
