Deer Processing

Processing your deer includes skinning, cutting, wrapping, grinding and freezing of your fresh meat.  Sausage fee is not included in the deer processing charge.  All sausage making is extra.  All of our smoked sausage products are fully cooked and are subject to normal shrink loss during the cooking process.

There will be an $85.00 deposit for each deer at the time it's dropped off.

This amount will be applied toward the processing charges. 


We reserve the right to refuse any trim not properly frozen, wrapped or dirty.  When bringing in trims

for sausage, no fat, hair or blood shot pieces are acceptable.  Please use food grade plastic storage bags.

Do not put meat in garbage bags.  They are made from used oil and may contain pesticides and

perfume.  Small plastic bags freeze quicker then large bags.


Accepting Deer

We process 550-650 deer annually.  Our goal is to process your order as quickly as possible, but quality comes first.  For that reason is is sometimes necessary during the hunting season for us to quit accepting whole deer.  We can hold a certain number of deer at our facility.  When we reach capacity, we need to stop accepting whole deer temporarily.  However, we will still be able to accept clean, boneless trims.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

When your meat is done

When your deer is completely processed we will call you.  Due to shortage of freezer space we will require that you pick up your deer meat within 10 days of notification that it is done.  Unless special arrangements have been made you will be charged $1 per day for storage (starting after the 10th day).  We do not have enough room in our freezer to hold 25,000-30,000 pounds of sausage.
