So what's all this Constanza's mumbo jumbo?

I keeping seeing you all post about Constanza's. I'm only about 20 miles from Webster, but I've only lived here for a few years so I'm not familiar with that place. I checked out their website. So do they process the whole deer or are you just dropping off some of the meat?

What's the best bet there, sausage or the "deer sticks"?

I'm not a WNY expert but I know many drop off the meat.   Ive had a couple things from there thanks to some generous fellas on this site.  The maple blueberry breakfast sausage and the pepperjack dogs are great.

Tony has all the info on his page. I’ve been going for 30 plus years , from when he started in his garage . He does not process deer, you bring him meat,and he ( they ) turn it into various products, Slim Sticks being a favorite. He’s an award winng sausage maker , started out only doing deer, now he has a year round shop of great sausage of all flavors , that shop closes for a few months of deer .

Stop by pick up a rate sheet it has all the info , and there’s always samples of the products, the hours vary in the season Im sure it’s online they have a FB page.

And while Tony is  I believe mostly there in the background, son in law runs it and it’s still first rate , and yes pricey , yet the line is out the door .

While not as long as Nomad I've been a customer since I got out of college and got a job (25ish years). The final product you get is pricey but also delicious. My wife and kids love the skinless hots and maple breakfast sausage. Many years ago Tony gave me and a friend a tour of the back and walked us through the whole process. I'm not sure if he's there much anymore.

I ran into Tony last week while I was dropping off meat prior to gun season. He looked good, and was heading back to check out the brand new smoker they just installed. It's funny, because I remember when he got his first big walk-in, from Chicago I think? Many years ago.

Regardless, their product is outstanding, with many options from fresh to smoked to snack stix. I only go there every few years anymore, since I need to raid the retirement fund first. Their hours for drop off and pick up are somewhat restrictive - 3 to 6 pm is tough for 9-5 folks.

Alt options are Steele’s in Avon, guy does a nice job. There is also a place in Wayland called Becker Meats, they have all kinds of stuff as well (haven’t tried yet). The did cut up my sons deer for $100 bucks, great price imo.

little further out is wilsons beef farm close to Canaseraga. Always enjoyed anything we had made.

If your in the Lewis co area Millers meat market in Glenfield has a lot of options too.   They also do the entire processing which is nice.   

For processing near me in Bridgeport Marsh Mill is excellent.

I went to Costanza’s for many years. I’ve been taking my  venison to Wilson’s Beef Farm for the past few years. Great stuff at a fraction of the cost of Costanza’s. I was comparing to Costanza’s recently. Their sticks are about half the cost as Costanza’s. Also at Wilson’s, if you take 5lbs of meat in for sticks, you get 5lbs of sticks back. At Costanza’s, it says that if you take 3lbs of venison in, you get 4.5lbs of sticks back. Sounds like a large portion of their sticks must come from pork or beef.
