We had the honor of participating in and processing the deer used in the tax tribute ceremony this year, in which Virginia’s native tribes present 2 deer and a turkey to the Governor, instead of paying taxes.
The ceremony was at 10AM today at the Virginia State Capitol Executive Mansion in Richmond. More about this event, and photos from the Richmond Times Dispatch.
Thanks and congratulations to all the Virginia hunters for keeping us busy processing deer during archery and black powder hunting seasons this year! We’ve never seen that many deer (297, to be exact) come through this early. We look forward to a record-breaking gun season and working hard to be your favorite place to bring your deer for processing. Thank you to all the Virginia hunters for allowing us to serve you, and happy hunting!
Update 1/10/2014: We are happy to announce that we have now processed 816 deer so far this season!
For Veterans Day 2013, Burks Farm is offering all veteran, active duty, reserve duty, and National Guard personnel Free Deer Processing on 1 deer. We appreciate your service!

Calvin Victor Burks: March 19, 1935 – November 1, 2013
Last Friday November 1, my father Calvin Victor Burks passed away here at home, surrounded by his loving family. He was the patriarch of the Burks family, and will be dearly missed. Friends may call Tuesday night at the Widener Funeral Home, Northfork, from 6 to 8:00 P.M.
Burks Farm will remain open during this time, but with a lighter staff. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
edit: Sincere thanks to all who supported us during this time with cards, kind words, and patience.
