Custom Processing FAQS
What do you mean by "custom poultry processing"?
There are two parts to this: First, our customizable systems can process flocks of almost any size. Secondly, we can process birds of various sizes and species as well. We also offer feet- and head-on processing options. Whatever the size or composition of your flock, we can process it on demand.
Why are you able to process birds that others can't?
Our lines are capable of processing flocks of various sizes and birds of various sizes and species as well. We also do hand processing. This means that each species of bird gets the treatment it needs for an efficient and humane slaughter.
What is the minimal size flock you can process?
We offer custom kill opportunities to members of the CFO Artisanal and local Niche Market growers. We currently cannot process flocks smaller than 500 birds.
How do you keep my birds separate from someone else’s?
Your birds will either be placed in crates or pens that you have labeled yourself, or organized and labeled by our team based on your instructions. Each farmer's birds are processed separately from other flocks, and when processing is complete, stored in designated ice chests.

How far in advance should I make an appointment?
We typically schedule processing appointments between 3 - 4 weeks in advance. Contact us to book an appointment.
What if I need certain birds kept separate from the rest of the flock?
We are happy to keep designated birds separate from the rest of your flock. Simply put them in a separate crate upon arrival, and leave your instructions with that crate.
When can I pick up my processed birds?
You can pick up your processed birds early in the evening on the day of processing. However, we can accommodate earlier or later pick up times; just let us know in advance.
