Payment

Payment for services is expected at pickup. Accepted payment options include cash, personal checks or business checks, and Visa, MasterCard and Discover cards. Customers with returned checks will be charged $45.

We will call and email you to let you know when your product is ready. We ask that finished product must be picked up within 48 hours of notification that it is ready for pickup due to high volume. Product left in our facility past 48 hours may incur a storage fee of $20 a day.

Documentation

When dropping off animals, every customer will be assigned animal tag numbers. Customers will also be given the regulations on antibiotic usage and withdrawal as well as Humane Handling. Customers will be asked to sign a form documenting their receipt of the regulations.

Cutting Instructions

We have standardized cut sheets for each species available for download from our website or available for pick-up at the plant. Cut sheets must be filled out and have your signature before PCM can start processing your order. We request that cutting instructions be dropped off when dropping off the animal.

Please note, your order will not be added to our production schedule until we receive a signed and completed cut sheet.

Cut Sheets
Order Completion

When your order is complete, we will send you an email and call to notify you that your order is complete. If you are having items further processed, (cooked or smoked) this will not be included in your first invoice and notification. When those items are completed, we will send a separate invoice and notification. PLEASE NOTE, YOUR ORDER IS NOT READY FOR PICKUP UNTIL WE NOTIFY YOU. We will make an effort to accommodate your timetable but with all the moving parts of our company and process, we CANNOT make any guarantees. Order pick-up is 7:00 am - 3:00 pm, Monday - Friday.

Scheduling

Please do not bring animals for slaughter without prior scheduling. Please keep in mind:

Selling Quarters, Halves, or Whole Animals?

We cannot take cutting instructions from a farmer’s multiple customers. So that we may better serve you, we ask that you communicate with your customers ahead of time to provide us with a final cut sheet for processing.
