Charlie and Kristi Emswiler bought the Wahoo Locker in November 1998. Charlie continued the tradition of sausage-making in Wahoo and the business has grown and expanded through the years. In 2013 the Emswilers moved the business across the street to accommodate all of the growth that was happening. This created a new opportunity to have a larger retail store to showcase all of the wonderful products that the locker produces. Now a second-generation has begun working at the locker and learning the trade. We are excited about all the future holds and look forward to many more years of  serving our community.

Friendly and informative staff, along with quick turnaround, and most importantly fantastic products. As a 1st time customer in deer season 2017 they explained the approximate amount of sausage I should get back, and it was just as they said, No surprises or mistakes like I’ve had at other lockers. I will definitely be back!

Very clean and professional facility to use for our custom and retail meat processing. We are a direct-to-consumer business and utilize the services of Wahoo Locker to provide quality products to our customers. Thank you to Charlie, Josh, and all the staff of Wahoo Locker for what you do to keep local farmers and ranchers in business!

I don’t even know where to start with the Wahoo Locker. We have always processed our own deer but the last two years we’ve went thru you and it is such a breeze, it’s almost too easy! The end results are absolutely out of this world from the deer bacon to the Pepperjack summer sausage- we will never do our own processing again. Your Cajun bacon is to die for and you have the most wonderful staff. All around fantastic place!
