Poultry Producer Survey
Many small-scale poultry growers have a need for poultry processing under USDA inspection and/or organic certification. This inspection and/or certification makes products eligible for sale off-farm to restaurants, retail stores, and individual customers. We are looking for feedback from the local poultry community involved in the production of local, organic, and/or pastured poultry in our region to establish if a USDA inspected poultry processing facility is needed for our area.

The potential processing plant in Oxford, PA (southern Chester County) will deal primarily in the processing of chickens, but would potentially offer processing for ducks, turkeys, goose, and other fowl.

We would offer USDA inspected processing, which will eliminate processing-related restrictions on where and how the poultry products are sold. We will also be exploring the organics certification for processing, and religious exemptions such as halal and kosher.

In order to serve you, we are asking current and potential poultry producers to inform us of your wants and needs.

If you have any questions, please feel free to send us an email: littlebranchbutcher@gmail.com
