The “Hit List” is the form used to assign the hanging weights of your animals to your customers, as well as indicating if the owner of the animals or their customers will be paying for the Slaughter and or the Processing costs. Once the Hit List has been completed you can begin to complete Cutting Instructions and or have your customers submit their cutting instructions to us online.

  • When should I fill out my Hit List?

We request our clients complete their Hit List within 48 hours of receiving their hanging weights via email. We will include all the information required when we email you.

 

Cutting Instructions & Processing:

  • When can Cutting Instructions be completed?

We request cutting instructions are completed within 48 hours of receiving your hanging weight email. This allows us enough time to fully review your instructions and process your orders in a timely manner. If cutting instructions are not received in time for cutting, we will have to cut orders following the “Butcher’s Choice” specification which is standard processing created for each animal type.

  • Am I able to get a cut not listed on the cutting instruction form?

We make our best effort to accommodate client requests whenever possible. Any special requests can be detailed in the special instructions box at the bottom of the cutting form.

All offals from beef and pork are returned directly to the farmer for distribution. Lamb offals will be packaged with orders as available.

 

Order Pickup:

Processing times vary depending on the volume animals we are cutting. On average, processing takes 1-2 weeks for lamb, 2-3 weeks for pork and 3-4 weeks for beef from the time of slaughter.

We will contact the person paying for the processing of the animal upon order completion. Once the order is ready for pickup, we will email an invoice along with advanced payment options. We are available Monday – Friday, 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM for pickup.
