Food Hub Lessons:
Processing and Marketing Meat
January 2015 • Duration: 90 minutes
Marksbury Farm Market is a small-scale, privately owned slaughterhouse and packaging facility, as well as a retail market, located in Kentucky. They sell grass-fed beef, pastured pork, poultry and lamb sourced from over 40 local farmers. Currently, Marksbury distributes their products (with their own small fleet) to restaurants, grocery stores, and institutional markets. In this session from the 2015 Southern SAWG annual conference, two of the partners discuss their facility, staffing, farmer relationships, markets, and other issues facing food processing firms that market livestock products.
Presenters: John-Mark Hack and Preston Correll, Marksbury Farm Market (KY).
