Supporting Medical Research

Burks Farm is proud to participate with multiple research facilities for forensic testing, medical research, and specialized medical training. Doctors from VCU have been coming for over a year now harvesting pig bladders. They have created a machine that they hook these bladders up to and they can watch the bladder function as if it is in the animal or human. First time in history. They have already published 2 papers on their findings and they think the possibilities of what they can learn are endless. About 8 years ago we had another doctor from VCU come and harvest the largest nerve in the body to attempt to discover new ways for nerves to regenerate.

Thanks to customers and staff for a record-breaking deer season!

This hunting season of 2017-2018 was the first time Burks Farm processed over 1000 dear (1047 Deer & 13 Bear so far)! Burks Farm sincerely thanks all the hunters who kept us busy processing deer this past hunting season, and also greatly appreciates the hard work of each member of our staff.

We couldn’t do it without you, and look forward to next season!
