Rick Reams' life came full circle when he and his wife purchased what eventually became known as RJ's Meats in 1987. It not only brought Rick back to Hudson after spending four years in the Air Force, but he was taking over the store he worked at as a high schooler — known then as Jim's Meats. More than 35 years later, Rick has built RJ's into a state of the Hudson community.

Rick joined this week's episode of the St. Croix Stories podcast to share more about his journey to owning RJ's, discusses how the meat business is a family affair for him, and shares more details about the meat vending machine the store installed in 2017 that made headlines not just locally, but around the globe.
