License to Cut - Butcher Shop Online and Inspected.

In this morning’s mail I received our meat processing license from the Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets division. We are now able to officially begin butchering under Vermont state inspection!

Congratulations!

And a big THANK YOU for your website. Prior to us starting with pigs a few months ago, I read through your entire website which was an ENORMOUS help to get started! There was not a single question I had in my head that you did not answer for me.

Now, you are able to by-pass another middleman.

When it is used for evil, then watch out! When it is used for good, then things are much nicer. Like this tiny ad:
