Roller Coaster Farm offers our customers three different options for processing:
1. Avon Locker Plant in Darlington WI will cut, wrap, and freeze the meat according to the customer’s specific cutting order. Contact Avon to discuss prices for processing and to place the cutting order. Avon charges a flat fee for processing lamb. For pork and beef, they have a basic charge per pound of hanging weight for cutting and packaging. Depending on what the customer orders, there are additional charges for added processing such as curing hams and bacon, or making sausage and brats. Call and talk to Roch or Andrew at 608-776-2336 for details.
Lamb and fresh pork is ready for customer to pick up in 1-2 weeks after slaughter. Cured pork takes a little longer. Avon dry ages the beef for 21 days before cutting and wrapping so the meat is ready for pick-up about 4 weeks after slaughter.
2. Underground Food Collective will bring your meat to its facility in Madison WI and will custom fabricate it. Contact Jonny Hunter at Underground at 608-320-0017 or firstname.lastname@example.org for details and prices for processing.
3. Some of our customers like to do their own processing. Cooled halves can be picked up at Avon or Underground for break down at home. Contact Avon or Jonny Hunter to set it up.
