• When do I drop my animal off?

    • Drop off time is 7:30 – 8:30 am the morning of your scheduled date.

  • Do I get my own meat back?

    • Yes, you will always receive your own meat.  We tag each carcass to the name of the customer.  The tag follows your carcass all the way to the freezer.

  • How do we know when our meat is ready?

    • Most generally it takes 2 – 3 weeks.  When the meat is processed, and frozen we send you a card.  We give you 30 business days after your meat is ready to pick up.

  • What percent yield will my animal produce?

    • Yield depends on condition of animal.  Ex: If your animal is fat your yield will be lower.  If you want bone in product your yield will appear higher.

  • When are you open for pickup?

    • 8am – 5:30pm Monday through Friday and 8am – 12pm on Saturdays.

  • What will the beef to fat content be in my hamburger?

    • This will largely depend on the amount of fat on your carcass.  We typically try to achieve an 85-15 mix.  The larger amount of red meat (steaks and roasts) that are cut will typically produce a higher fat content in your ground beef.

  • Things you need to know:

    • We charge all processing fees off of the carcass/hanging weight. You will take home approximately 60% - 65% of that weight on beef and 70% - 75% of that weight on hog.
