Local butcher needed

tripleckidz Sep 27, 2007 03:58 PM

I have lambs that need to be butchered but am having a hard time locating anyone in Lake or Orange County. Anyone know of a reputable butcher?

    Are they dead yet?

        No but they can be. I was looking for someone to do the business if I could transport them live.

          Most butchers would have nothing to do with the slaughtering end of things nor would they, generally, be interested in skinning and dressing the carcass.

          You might contact Ali Meat Industry, (407) 277-9483 | 1616 S Dean Rd, Orlando FL 32825 and see if they can hook you up.

          The other option that comes to mind would be to talk to the butchers at a more upscale place such as Fresh Market or Petty's and see if they can connect you with someone who would do it for you freelance. (I have no idea what they would charge you). Get the messy, first half of the process done and then have the butcher finish the job.

            I found someplace in Sanford. Hopkins Meat Packing. Thanks for helping. I called Petty's and they gave me the contact.
