Our Story, Friends and Suppliers

Here at the Chop N Block we pride ourselves on sourcing locally produced and/or locally processed products.

First we source from within our community, then within our province and at the very least from within our country. Below is a list and some links to our suppliers sites and contact information if you’d like to find out more about the products we offer.

Introducing our new Smokehouse Jerky

The Chop N Block Story

The Chop N Block was founded in 1999. After passing through a few different hands and carrying a few different prefixes it always provided the same great products and services. In the spring of 2014, it ended up in the capable hands of Brody White and Heather Nicklas who operate Spruce Goose Culinary LTD. Hence, Spruce Goose & Chop N Block is the tittle it caries today. Brody and Heather are very excited about continuing the tradition of the local butcher and deli.
