Butchering & Processing

The Elma Locker & Grocery, Inc. specializes in butchering and processing of beef, hogs, buffalo, goats, sheep, and lambs.  We also process deer trim, whole field dressed deer, and we participate in the HUSH program.  Click on the products page in the menu to the left to see the products we carry, and the products we can make from your beef, hog, buffalo, goat, sheep, lamb, and deer.  To see the cutting instructions for beef and pork click on the Beef Cutting Instructions or the Pork Cutting Instructions button in the menu bar.

During deer hunting season we have a deer shack available at all hours for drop off of whole carcass deer across the street.  We ask that people put their deer tag on the carcass and CLOSE the cooler door behind them.

We process the deer taken by youth, bow, and early muzzle loader seasons before we process the shot gun season deer.  We do our best to process all deer in the order they have been delivered to the locker and we appreciate everyone's patience.

We expect the deer trim delivered to the locker for processing to be free of hair and bloody pieces.  Additional charges maybe incurred, because of poorly trimmed/skinned deer.  We prefer deer trim to be in pieces, not ground, and no other meats added to the deer, like beef or pork.   Also, when delivering field dressed deer we prefer the hide to be left on the carcass.  Removing the hide does not save you money on the processing.  The hide actually protects the meat on the carcass.

*Attention All Deer Hunters*

Your health is important to us.  This is why we strongly suggest you bring your order in food grade safe containers or bags.  Food grade bags are available most anywhere for purchase, including at our store.  Deer brought in NOT in food grade safe containers will be processed separately from all other deer.

Remember, all deer, whether field dressed or
 trimmed out must be kept cold or frozen

We will REFUSE ANY deer meat that is UNACCEPTABLE.
