The name of the place is Wills Poultry Tasso. It is a meat packing/poultry outfit in Buffalo. I know they do not ship over the internet.

Wow, Never Seen So Many Meat Products

Old stomping grounds up in Buffalo. Here is an outfit 35 years ago we went here many times to buy meats, a box (40 lbs.) of chicken wings at $.19 a lb. $7.60 for a box and I see it now at over $70.00 a box. I am amazed at the products for sale. Naturally there are no prices since they change daily. ...
