How Midway Deer Processing Handles Your Kill

Midway Deer Processing

After being in the processing industry for over 50 years, we’ve learned a thing or two about handling your meat from kill to finished product.

Before we go on – we think it’s most important to note that your meat is kept completely separate from other orders the entire time we process. We understand that this is a major concern for hunters! You worked hard for your kill, put the hours in, and ultimately developed the skill necessary to get it done.

That’s why we guarantee that the meat you bring to us will be the meat your receive when we’re done. Take a look at the video below to see our process, or read through our step-by-step guide.

Here’s what we do with your meat at Midway Deer Processing:

 1. The drop-off

All you need to do is pull through our driveway behind our country market and we’ll take care of the rest. One of our experts will come out to meet you and help load your meat into a bin. We’ll get your name and contact information that will stay with your bin throughout the entire process.
Don’t worry about cleaning out your ice chest – we’ll do it for you. 🙂

2. Weighing

You’ll follow us to the processing center, where we’ll weigh the meat in your bin. We like to do this in front of our customers so they know exactly how much deer meat will be processed for their order. That information is added to your individual card that will stay with your order.

You’ll receive a receipt for your order after this step.

3. Break down the meat

We’ll take your order directly into our cutting room to have the usable meat separated from the carcass. During this process, we make sure to extract as much edible meat as possible while avoiding any bloodshot sections of the kill.

4. Fill your order

Depending on the type of meat you ordered (our family sausage recipe is a favorite!) our team will process your request. As we fill the order, your meat is put directly into a bin with your order receipt taped to the outside. It then takes a short walk to the freezer, where we’ll keep the order until you come to pick it up.

5. Confirm your order

This is the best part – you get your processed items to take home and eat! We’ll go over the order with you to make sure we got everything done to perfection. If you need fixings or anything else to complete your meal, you can take a quick stroll over to our country market and take a look around!
