We have a state certified processing facility on the farm!! We process all of our own chickens, ducks, turkey, pork, rabbit and beef. We also process for the general public, however, because this isn’t the core of our business, we do so selectively. We don’t want to process on a commercial scale but rather like helping small farms that raise a minimal amount of poultry, pork, lamb or goats. Following is our pricing for custom processing:
