Custom Poultry Processing and Retail Store
Please call for an appointment 330-897-0626. All processing is done by appointment only. Call well in advance as we can be booked from weeks to month in advance. Do not bring birds that have not been scheduled.
When dropping your birds at the Plant, follow the signs. You can drop off the night before or in the morning of scheduled processing day between 6:30 and 8:00 AM, somebody should be there to help. If you come later than 8:00 AM you may have to unload them by yourself. No birds after 9:30 AM.
Chickens: All chickens must be in poultry pens or crates, birds that are not in crates or loose in a trailer must be transferred into our crates by you the owner, if transferring please pull off to the side so other customers can keep unloading. Please have your cages marked so that you know which are yours.
Turkeys: Broad breasted Turkeys can be brought in stock trailers and unloaded in pens, heritage Turkeys need to be in crates.
Make sure you take their food away 12 to 18 hours before slaughter ( Keep the Water supplied) this will empty out the bird and make it a much more sanitary process.
Your Job is to provide transportation for your birds in a proper well ventilated container, do not bring them in closed cardboard or plastic containers (they need oxygen to survive). We cannot be responsible for birds brought in as DOA's.
Our Job is to harvest these birds in the most humane way possible. We us an electric stun knife for an instant humane dispatch, after which the birds are bled out, cleaned, and eviscerated. The birds are then chilled in an ice water bath to 40F before going into the cooler for further process.
Do to the large increase in local foods and markets, We are not able to accept any more Poultry for custom Processing at this time. We are maxed out to what we are capable of processing. We do have some Phone No. to help you find somebody.
