Mobile Slaughter FAQs
How exactly does the mobile butcher process work?
We provide on-site butchering and custom meat processing services for local farmers and their customers.
1. The farmer sells a live cow, sheep, pig, or goat directly to their customers. Animals are typically sold in quarters, halves, and wholes.
Farmers set their own prices for meat.
Our meat processing prices vary.
2. The live animal remains on the farm and does not have to be transported to a slaughter plant. This saves time and stress for everyone, including the animal.
3. Our mobile butcher unit drives to the farm, where the animal is humanely euthanized. We then transport the carcass to our butchery for processing.
4. We process the meat according to each customer’s specifications: bratwurst, roasts, ground meat, etc.

We process mobile butchered meat on behalf of customers who have purchased a live animal from a local farmer.
We are working on compiling a list of farmers who use our on-site slaughter services and are looking for more customers. In the meantime, if you would like to be connected to a farmer, please call our store and ask for Jason or Aron.
