SCHEDULING YOUR BIRDS

DROP OFF BIRDS

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 7:30 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 8:30 AM.

TRANSPORT & CRATING

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.

FEED WITHDRAWL

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. 

2024 GUIDELINES FOR CUSTOM PROCESSING

Drop off time is between 6:30 and 7:30 AM on the day of your appointment. Or you can drop off the night before. Make sure your cages are marked with your name. After dropoff, fill out your cut-sheet at the office. If you dropoff the night before, call or email the information first thing the next morning. If you want your giblets we need to know before we start processing. The Giblets from orders that don’t say that you want them will not be saved.

Make sure you have the right drop off date. If you are not sure when you are scheduled call and ask us to confirm your processing day. If you bring them a few days earlier or later than your processing day it will result in over kills and be considered as unscheduled. There will be a $100 fee for unscheduled birds. We will give you a call or email the week before your processing date to keep this to a minimum. Please let us know well in advance if you have to cancel so that we can help someone else with their processing.

Due to the time involved in processing, chilling, cutting, and packaging we are not doing same day pick-ups. We will call or email when your order is done.

Please pick up your order within 10 days after we call you or email to keep our freezers from getting to full and overloaded so that we can serve our customers more effectively and efficiently in a timely manner.

Prompt payment is appreciated. We accept cash, check or credit card. There is a 3% fee for using a credit card payment due to the additional cost for us to process them.

Your Job

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
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.
Food Safety is everyone’s responsibility

Salmonella, Campylobacter, and e-coli will be part of the chicken world. Like weeds in good soil, they will be part of the process. By incorporating good management practices and utilizing a multiple hurdle approach , industry has proven that pathogens can be controlled and reduced to a minimum.

#1 Are your birds clean, do they smell like live chicken or raw sewage? Feathers impacted with fecal is #1 against pathogen control, Having your birds come in clean helps us to control pathogens in your meat and all the other people that bring there birds in to process. #2 Feed withdrawal is the next step, if feed is not with drawn the crop is full of undigested contamination, the gut is full of fecal matter and all of this is prone to rupture and leakage during the harvest stage and will contaminate the meat resulting in a pathogen overload that can make people sick.
