frobose meat locker  


Welcome to Frobose Meat Locker, located in beautiful downtown, historic Pemberville, Wood County, Ohio.


Bob & Elaine Frobose have been owners of Frobose Meat Locker since 1999.    At the time, Bob had over 30 years of experience in the meat business. Most recently he was the meat supervisor for 10 stores in a tri-state area for Miller’s Markets based in LaGrange, Indiana.


Bob and I were both raised on family farms in Wood County.  Bob had experience at a young age raising cattle, hogs, and chickens.  Our children have had the same experience. 

FML is a family-owned and -operated business.  Bob and I, our sons, Ben, Jacob, and Zach, and daughter Abby all work at our business in one way or another.  We raise our own cattle on our family farm.  The cattle are corn fed.  They are given NO hormones or antibiotics.  We raise the cattle to a finished weight and process them in our meat locker. 

We are proud of the fact that we buy and sell locally- or Ohio-produced products.   It is a pleasure meeting new customers and maintaining relationships with those who visit regularly. We will always strive to provide friendly and quality service to all who enter our doors.

Here's what our customers have to say ...

We have been doing business with the Frobose Meat Locker since July 1999. We have never had any complaints about the products they sell. 

The meat is all TOP QUALITY,  and we are treated like family. 

Our extended family (out of state) especially enjoys the homemade jerky and asks for it when we all get together. 

We highly recommend the Frobose Meat Locker.

We live in Norwalk, which is about an hour away, and we started buying meat in bulk from Frobose's about four years ago. 

Through cookouts and word of mouth about the excellence of their product, I now make a monthly meat run to Pemberville and average between 12-16 orders at a time totaling anywhere between $600 to $1200 per trip. 

Everyone raves about Frobose's Meats and are always asking when I am going to make my next trip so they can load up on brats, chicken breasts,  steaks, sausage, etc.

Why a Meat Locker?

FML is called meat locker because in our walk in freezer, we have individual lockers for you to rent.  Each locker will hold approximately a quarter of beef.  The lockers have a number and a key lock.  The keys are kept in a safe spot at our business.    We keep your name/address/ phone number in a file along with your assigned locker number.  Locker rent is paid on a per month basis.
