Processing

We process these species: beef, pork, buffalo, elk, lamb, goat, or call for more information.

For over 30 years now custom processing has been a main focus of our business. To provide quality processing for the way you want it has always been our goal.

We can provide custom processing for you on beef, pork, buffalo, elk, lamb, goat and / or we can provide CIS federal inspection of your beef, pork, lamb or goat. We enjoy helping local producer’s process animals that they take to various markets throughout Iowa to sell and provide to their customers. Bringing a little bit of their farm to your home. If you are looking to purchase beef, pork or other species we can help provide that service to you through CIS Federal slaughter and processing.  This means you are able to cross state lines with your inspected product to sell.

We have also provided online cutting instruction through the customer log in section on our main paid, upper right hand corner.

Currently for producer scheduling a species for harvest, we are requiring a $80 per large species and $20 per small species deposit to reserve your spot at the time of scheduling.  This deposit does go back to your customer as a credit on their invoice.  The deposit is non-refundable if you cancel your animal and/or a do not show up for your schedule date.  Arcadia Meats deposit requirement and/or non-refund policy can change at the discretion of Arcadia Meats.

Custom processing pricing can extremely vary from species, sizes of species, to what you have processed. We do list a rough range of what you can possibly expect for cost of processing. Please call if you have any questions, so we be able to give you a more accurate estimate of cost based on what and how you want your processing done.  All prices and processing costs can change at the discretion of Arcadia Meats.  All prices below are all estimates.

Example: If you have an animal processed as all fresh cuts, your processing could be on the lower end depending on dressed weight of animal. If you have an animal processed fresh cuts, various extras made ex: sticks, jerky, patties, sausages, your cost of processing will go higher depending on amounts made and size of dressed animal.

Please feel free to give us a call for any questions.  712-689-2435
