Bryan's Award Winning Products
When you walk into our retail store you'll see our awards on the wall. Each year Dan attends the Pennsylvania Association of Meat Processors Convention at Penn State University. At this convention they have a competition into which all Pennsylvania Meat Processors can enter their products. We have won awards for our Pork BBQ, Chicken Broccoli and Cheese Sausage, Venison Product, Smoked Ham, and Smoked Bacon which is currently the #1 Smoked Bacon in the state of Pennsylvania. Dan displays these awards in his store with great pride knowing the hard work that went into earning them.
You'll also find numerous ribbons on their walls as well. These ribbons come from 4-H animals that Dan and Nick have purchased form the Owego, Troy, Chemung, Whitneyville and Wyoming County Fairs. Bryan's is a huge supporter of 4-H, not only as a livestock buyer, but also as a contributor to various fundraisers and donations held by the 4-H.
The Troy Fair
In July, you'll find our crew working at Bryan's BBQ Pit at the Troy Fair. At the BBQ Pit, we serve some of the finest sandwiches known to mankind. Our specialtv of course is Schultz's Pork BBQ, then add to that Cajun Patty Melts, Roast Beef, Ham BBQ, Chicken BBQ and Chicken Spiedie Sandwiches. And let’s not forget Bryan's own Hot Dogs!

Holidays at Bryan's
Then it's on to the Christmas Season! For a real treat you need to try one of our own Hickory Smoked Hams or one of our Smoked Center Cut Pork Loins for your Holiday Meal. Butch exceeds all expectations with his remarkable smoking ability.
Bryan's success would not be possible without our other employees who make our crew complete. These employees are Donna Ackley, Bob Godshall, Suzanne Dietz, Adam Vroman, Josh Ames and Andrew Jackson. Three other very special people you'll see helping out in the shop are Kyle's wife Kara, who is also a registered nurse and Nick's girlfriend Janice Jackson, who attends Juniata College majoring in Environmental Science, and Deb's husband Robert, who works at UGI.
Dan doesn't want to leave out sister Marie and her husband Ricky who help out whenever needed. Dan wants to thank his family and employees for all of their hard work and dedication and he is glad they are part of his team.
Becky Bryan feels very fortunate to see her children carry on a business that she and her late husband started. And now to see her grandchildren so involved makes her feel truly blessed. Dan's wishes are to someday hand the reigns down to his sons Kyle, Nick and Matt and he knows they will be ready to take them. Their grandfather would be so proudl
