Hayes Meats Re-Opens
Oct 27, 2011 05:39PM
Merritt Island residents can now purchase organic produce from a well-known local produce stand and then swing next-door to grab a free beer while they shop for grass-fed New York steak at Hayes Meats and Gourmet Foods.
Hayes Meats acquired the produce stand that sits next to their parking lot in August when owners Gem and Connie Gurgan purchased it, along with the Hayes Meats building. The Gurgans have owned Hayes since 1995 but rented the building from a property-owner who also held the produce stand.
Gem Gurgan explained that the motivation for bringing organic offerings to the store and the produce stand was not only because it was a growing trend but because “it’s the future.” He added that they are currently offering just a few choices, but will expand their selection as the market demands it. Gurgan also said that he had seen the movie “Food, Inc” which exposes the practices of industrial factory farming, and he is proud to also offer organic steak.
Hayes Meats is located at 285 Fortenberry Rd, Merritt Island. For more information call 321-453-3550.
