            Best wishes for a prosperous future. I buy most of my meat from local farmers and they all tell me about their processors closing and having having to transport their animals farther away and increasing their stress. A stressed animal is not a tasty animal. So you're definitely filling a need.

                  No I can't sell any retail just do custom processing.. retail is a whole other level of inspection.

                Huh it has been a year already!! We processed over 80,000 lbs of beef and hogs this year along with 132 deer and over 10,000 lbs of deer sausage!! The schedule is filling up fast for next year. Couldn't have asked for a better first year. A lot of it is due to the help I have found,. We processed 1894 lbs of steers in 6 hours today .. tomorrow we will grind and stuff the burger.. unreal..

              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


              The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.

              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!
