On-Farm Poultry Processing Increases Access to Fresh Meat


Farm Name: Parker Family Farms
Operator: Randall and Renee Parker
Production: Livestock (poultry)
Markets: Farmer’s Markets and Buying Club
Website/Contact: www.rparkerfarms.com
Location: Hurdle Mills, Orange County, NC
 
Parker plans to increase profits by adding meat birds to his farming operation and by selling at the State Farmers Market. Since there are no meat processors nearby, Parker will purchase his own equipment
which will reduce the time and cost of traveling to a processing facility and will enable him to offer fresh instead of frozen meat.
