USDA Inspected Processing

We provide USDA inspected processing for people wanting to get animals processed so they can resell the product. This is perfect for people wishing to sell at stores, farmer markets, or restaurants. Each animal is inspected by our USDA inspector during harvest in order to insure that it is safe for consumption. From beef, hogs, sheep, and goats, we provide a quality service for you and your customers. We go step by step through our cutting instructions with you to make sure you know all the possible cuts available, this way you only get the cuts that you and your customers want.

To all of our USDA customers, it is our business to keep you in business. Without you, there would be no us!

Support your local farmers and farmers markets.
