Hello everybody!

Two days ago, my wife and I went to our local butcher's shop. As my wife was busy talking to a woman behind the counter, I took the opportunity to take a closer look at the notice on the wall behind the shop assistant.

The notice - after being translated into English - reads as follows:

We grind meat at customers' request.

Do you think it is properly expressed?

Thank you.

It's OK. It would be more typical to say Meat ground to order. This is not a complete sentence but it's common wording for a sign in a store.
