Empire Custom Processing
We are a USDA inspected, 100% family-owned slaughter and processing facility located in Bridgewater, NY. All meat for public consumption in the U.S. must be inspected by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), an agency of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), is the public health regulatory agency responsible for ensuring that the United States’ commercial supply of meat, poultry, and egg products is safe, wholesome, and correctly labeled and packaged. FSIS conducts carcass-by-carcass inspections at all federally inspected slaughter facilities and verifies that establishments follow all food safety and humane handling regulations.

Why choose us for your processing?
We know firsthand the time, energy, and hard work that it takes to raise your animal. Because of this, you need a custom processor that you can trust. Our tracking system ensures that the animal that you drop off is the meat that you bring home. Each animal is assigned a lot number when it arrives in our pens. That number stays with your animal to the kill shoot, through the holding cooler, to the cutting table, and into the freezer. We process one animal at a time on our tables. Each grind is done individually as well to ensure that the ground meat you take home is from your animal. We also provide a full computerized animal detail list at pick up of all the cuts that you take home. Our team takes great pride in getting each order done to your specifications.
We are certified in organic & grass fed slaughter, processing, packaging, and labeling by Baystate Organic Certifiers
