i. Freezing; For frozen products we cannot allow storage for more than 72 hours due to the need to freeze products for other committed clients.

ii. Bulk; Due to inadequate space for segregated cold storage, if products are processed in bulk for trimming that are intended for further processing and are not cryovaced, they must leave our facility within 24 hours to avoid spoilage. If products are not picked up within 24 hours of order completion, products may be subject to disposal.

iii. Finished Product; All finished packaged product(s) that are procured in house and are not intended for freezing have a maximum of 1 week to be picked up. Please communicate with us to prevent spoilage of product as we are limited to space.

 If you are processing for personal consumption, it can be custom cut.  The only differences between USDA processed and custom processed is that the custom cut product cannot be sold to the public, and labels on packages will not include our USDA establishment number and will be marked ‘NOT FOR SALE" to ensure that these products are strictly for private and personal consumption. Although it is not necessary to slaughter the animal under inspection for person consumption it is always possible and there is no difference in price. All products include safe handling instruction to help and enforce food safety at all times.
