There’s much more to Blood Farm than incredible products and outstanding customer service. We also offer a range of special services that really makes us a must-visit destination. Check out our extensive list of extras below.

 

PROCESSING AND SLAUGHTER

Processing

To better serve you, all livestock must have an appointment for processing. We are a small establishment and must adhere to a tight schedule. We recommend you call no later than June to be scheduled for a fall appointment.

YOU MUST ALREADY BE SCHEDULED.

 

Product not picked up within 5 business days will be subject to a storage fee.

Notice beef customers: Blood Farm will no longer accept any LONG HORN BEEF (Scotch Highlander, Texas Longhorn). In order for us to accept these beef, the horns must be removed or cut down short before arrival.

Notice lamb/goat customers: please make sure your animals are dry for the day of your appointment. If they are soaking wet we may not be able to process them for several days and you could be turned away. Thank you for your cooperation.

Livestock Schedule

Monday and Thursday: Hogs 

Tuesday: Sheep/Lambs/Goats

Cutting instruction form downloads are provided below.

 

Blood Farm will not accept any livestock we find too wild to be handled safely and humanely.

Cutting instructions are required before we will accept any livestock for slaughter.

It is important to fill out our cutting instruction form and bring it with you when delivering your animals. If we do not receive the cutting instructions by your processing date, your meat will be cut as a standard cut. Thank you for your understanding.

Livestock Tracking System

When your animal arrives at Blood Farm, you are met at the pen room door by a trained employee. They will assist you in unloading into our pens. Your animals go into their own pens. They are never corralled with other unfamiliar livestock. This avoids undo stress on the animal. Your name address and phone number are entered into a pen book that identifies your animal’s pen number. This identification will follow your livestock throughout the processing chain. There are numerous checks and balances in place to ensure that you receive the same product that you brought in.
