ATTRA Publication Has Advice for Building Partnerships with Processors
Your meat processor is your partner in taking an animal from pasture to plate.
Farmers who want to sell meat directly to restaurants, grocery stores, or consumers need a reliable and skilled partner: the meat processor is an essential team member and an asset to the business. This publication, "Working With Your Meat Processor," suggests some key ways to work effectively with a meat processor and lists resources for further information.
