The situation facing us today is challenging. While conventional markets for livestock have cooled as large processors shut down, NC farms are faced with a unique opportunity to market our meat directly to the consumer. This workshop is designed to equip the producer with clear and simple steps towards making bulk meat sales, such as quarters, halves, and mixed-cut bundles. We’ll cover “how to” tips to help you get started quickly. Join Ag.
