New deposit policy for animal slaughter and processing

Effective Jan 1, 2021, Burks Farm will require a deposit for all animals that are brought to us for slaughter and/or processing. The deposits will be:

  • $100 per beef
  • $50 per hog
  • $25 per sheep, lamb, or goat

Deposits should be paid at the time of scheduling. If the animals are delivered on the scheduled date, the deposit will be deducted from your final total.

If you cancel prior to seven days of the scheduled date of drop off, your deposit will be put toward the new drop off date. If you cancel or reschedule within seven days of your scheduled date of drop off, your deposit will be forfeited.

Thank you,
David and Ann Burks

Whole Beef and Hogs for Your Freezer and COVID-19 precautions

Now is the time to put a whole beef or hog in your freezer. We have sourced some very good half Angus half Japanese Wagyu beef. We also have very good top hogs.

Safety is our utmost concern here for everyone that works in our shop. We have adopted a stay in your vehicle policy. All customers must remain in their vehicle and call us when they are here, and then we bring your products out to you. When we interact with customers we wearing masks and gloves. Burks Farm, as always, stays very clean and sanitized, but we are taking further steps at this time by using stronger bleach concentrations, and washing surfaces throughout the day.
