Jeff Schabel


Jeff Schabel has spent over 30 years in the grocery store meat department business. He has lived near Kalispell, Montana for nearly 40 years, just 35 miles from the West entrance to Glacier National Park.

Jeff is married and has raised 3 daughters and is very proud of his 6 grandchildren.

Jeff grew up working in his father’s restaurant steak house in Santa Cruz, California and it is here where he began to get interested in starting his own business. At the age of 17 he ran his first ad in the Sunday edition of the Los Angeles Times. From there he and a friend started a small furniture manufacturing business, then onto a portable steam cleaning business.

In 1972 Jeff married his wife Lynn and moved to Kalispell, Montana. He was hired by a new company which did mobile butchering and customs meat cutting. Here is where his meat cutting career started. After 3 years of custom meat cutting, Jeff began working for Safeway and is currently working for a regional super market chain with stores in Idaho, Washington and Montana.

In between his meat cutting career, Jeff started a small Montana Made mail order catalog business and then he and 2 friends started a company called Amazing Grains. This company developed a system to oil roast grains and legumes as a snack food items. Great product, however the timing and lack of capital put Jeff back into the meat cutting business.
After 30 plus years of cutting meat for national and regional supermarkets, Jeff decided to share his knowledge and show people how to shop meat departments more wisely and get better products at a much better price.

The meat industry is changing very rapidly and with change comes new regulations and labeling laws. Much of this is very confusing and frustrating to the everyday shopper. For this reason Jeff has written 2 books to help the grocery store meat department shopper understand all the new terms, regulations and laws and also how to save lots of money shopping a meat department.

Jeff and his family live in the world renowned Flathead Valley. His home is within eyesight of Flathead Lake, which is the largest fresh water lake west of the Mississippi River. It is surrounded by rivers, mountains and lakes and is an outdoor paradise.

With nearly 2 million visitors to Glacier National Park per year, Jeff decided to write a Travel Guide and Vacation planner for the park visitor when they leave the west entrance.

One other thing you should know about Jeff…..he loves dirt. His garden and greenhouse are his second love. In 2010, he started a nursery called Hard Rock Road Nursery which specializes in growing ornamental grasses and hard neck garlic. He is a permanent member of the Backyard Growers Private Forum.

Jeff has a number of new books planned for the future.
