This is an online webinar that will last about an hour and is free to anyone interested. The North Carolina State University developed a training manual to offer technical assistance to smaller scale meat processors, you can download a copy at no cost at the website here. The Niche Meat Processor Assistance Network is a great resource and joining is free.

Local meat and poultry markets rely on small processors with a range of skills and services. NC Choices, an initiative of the Center for Environmental Farming Systems at North Carolina State University, spent two years working with a set of small processors in North Carolina, providing a range of technical assistance and support. The goal? Improve the quality and quantity of processing services available to the state’s livestock producers and to enhance the economic viability of both producers and processors.
On this webinar, NC Choices and three processors who participated in the project will tell us how they did it, what they accomplished, and why it matters. Speakers include:
- Sarah Blacklin and Casey McKissick, NC Choices
- Ann Rose, Rose Mountain Butcher Shoppe
- Richard Huettman, Acre Station Meat Farm
- Amanda Carter, Foothills Pilot Plant
