In 1967, a young man had a vision for his family to open a meat market. What remains is his legacy. Thanks for checking out our website. Feel free to browse around, review our products, find local grocers and distributors for our products, and learn about our custom processing and how to get Double D products delivered to your door.
T.S. “Dutch” Stogner, Sr., who always dreamed of owning his own butcher shop, moved his wife, Carrie, and family from the New Orleans area to the small community of Sun, LA to begin custom processing for local farmers.
Over time, the business expanded and moved to a new location a few miles north of its present location on Highway 21 just south of Bogalusa, LA. The untimely passing of Dutch in 1984 moved the company into the second generation of ownership under Dutch’s sons, Tillman and Mike Stogner, keeping the business in the family. The operation moved under USDA Inspection in 1987, which allowed products to be shipped across state lines and production expanded rapidly.
The decades of the 80s and 90s saw steady growth and expansion of the facility and distribution of their now famous “Double D Smoked Sausage” into markets as far away as Chicago and Los Angeles. As the 21st Century began, Double D was blessed to see continued steady growth and market expansion including two expansions of the plant into the current 35,000-square-foot facility. While the business has grown, the Stogner family’s commitment to product quality and exceptional customer service has never changed.
Double D still produces the original sugar-cured hams and bacon for local farmers and custom processing of deer, hogs, and beef cattle. As the company moves into the third generation of family management, it is poised for continued success and product expansion to meet the changing tastes and preferences of today’s modern consumers while staying true to the original principles and products that made Dutch’s dream a reality.
Double D does not ship to individual customers. However, we have a partnership with a local shipping company located in Bogalusa, LA.
