Most children in Childers grew up eating mock chicken legs – minced meat shaped like a drumstick and crumbed (and not actually chicken!). While these tasty treats still have a cult-like following at Buck’s Butcher Shoppe, it is the range of house made small goods that Buck Gooden and his son Wade have built their name on.

Wood-smoked ham and bacon chops, beer sticks, wurst, kabana and strasburg are all made with a Childers flavour.

Custom orders and ever-changing specials also keep the locals paying their weekly visit to this part of the charming Childers streetscape.
