Our Roots

Our founder, Blake Armstrong is coming back to family roots by coming into the beef and cattle business. His Grandfather, Billy Joe Armstrong, met his Grandmother just on the other side of the mountain, in Waynesville, NC selling Cattle to her father. Things became clear to Blake that he wanted to be involved in continuing his family tradition, while providing superior beef, at an affordable cost, delivered right to the families of WNC door. As it may be, people are looking to make less and less trips to the grocery store these days, so the vision was seen, the dream dreamt, and Lean Times Meat Company was born.
