Local Jewish Businesses

 With the establishment and growth of the local kosher meat plant, Postville experienced growth in the number of Jewish residents relocating from other big city settings such as New York, California or the like, falling in love with this unique “Shtetl”-style living. Many of the newcomers opened businesses or moved their existing businesses to Postville (economically a wise move as well). Some of the local Jewish businesses and professions include: family doctor, hospital beds, auto shop, electrician, honey making, Kosher cheese, frozen pizza production and much more.
