the right way

Making handcrafted meats and cheeses the right way since forever.

what does the right way mean?

It means never cutting corners. Ever. It means all of our spices are blended by hand, not premixed like the other guys. It means cooking, not processing. Like our Virginia Brand Ham, deep marinated then twice-baked to layer the flavors. Sure, it takes more time, but you can taste the difference.

The right way means being transparent about what goes into our food. And what doesn’t. It’s cooking our meats down to their natural weight, so you pay for meat, not water. It’s a commitment to quality that every single employee at Dietz & Watson upholds. Because if it’s not right for us, it’s not right for you. We’ve stuck by this tried-and-true philosophy since day one: doing it the right way, even if it’s the hard way.

They say the proof is in the pudding. Well, in this case, it’s in the meat and cheese. Watch as we break down our process and introduce some of the Dietz & Watson family of employees, all dedicated to doing things the right way.
