Please remember to get your deposits and orders in early, especially when you’re ordering pigs for a holiday.
Everyone please a have a great July 4th weekend!
The Burks Family, with Andrew Gillan, are devastated by the sudden passing of our beloved friend George Allen on May 4th. We share in the entire Allen family’s sorrow, especially that of Kary and her four children.
Please consider visiting the George Allen’s Family Fund page to help to offset Kary’s unforeseen costs with the sudden loss of her dear husband and father of their four children, and our beloved friend, George Allen. We’ll miss him dearly.

Burks Farm thanks all the hunters who kept us busy processing deer this past hunting season, and also wants to express gratitude to our great staff who were able to handle the workload and do a fine job under pressure.
We couldn’t do it without you, and look forward to next season!
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!
