    Pork Smoked Meat Options

    Natural Cure ($1.20 per pound)

    • Uses naturally occurring nitrates/nitrites in celery juice powder. USDA procedure has a narrower time tolerance for chilling of these products. Due to this procedure, hams will be broken down into three smaller, boneless pieces prior to smoking. They can still be made into ham steaks, but they will be smaller in size. Picnic hams must be cut in half prior to being smoked.

    Guidelines

    • Our wild game processing starts with the youth deer hunt in September and runs through January 13.
    • To place an order for deer processing, stop in the retail store first. Deer must be field dressed before being dropped off. Deer that have not been gutted will not be accepted. Please remove leaves, sticks, and debris before dropping off.
    • Hunting out of state? Check out what the DNR has to say on Chronic Waste Disease.

    Tips

    • If you have a long drive in warm weather or need to wait over the weekend to bring your deer in, put bagged ice in the cavity of the deer and cover it with a heavy blanket.
    • Place your deer in a cool, shaded area until you bring it in.
    • Keep the deer as clean and cold as possible for the best tasting venison.
