Small Scale Shared Use Slaughter Facility – NCDA&CS

Organization:
North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services
Amount:
$49,700.00
Program Area:
Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:
Wake
Description:

The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to fund a study to determine the feasibility of constructing a small scale shared use slaughter facility. The study will examine the demand for the facility, prepare a preliminary design for the facility that complies with applicable regulations, and estimate the cost of constructing the facility. Calls to the NCDA from consumers seeking locally produced, all-natural poultry and rabbit meat have increased. Currently, slaughter capacity is insufficient to keep up with consumer demand for these products.
