Valley Natural Meats


 Located on 16 acres of farmland in Northfield, Valley Natural Meats will offer USDA and custom processing services and wholesale meat distribution to the central / southern region of Minnesota.

We will be processing humanely raised grass-fed, and organic / natural grain fed, locally produced meats for our wholesale market. We’ll also be providing custom processing services for our local farmer-producers.

 Progress Report:

After purchasing the latent facility in August, we embarked on a retrofit and remodeling of the facility.  Progress has been steady – Millinery work on the rail system has been completed, new safety flooring poured, and we’ve remodeled for efficient and safe process flow.  We are also reworking the barn with a sharp focus on providing a peaceful, respectful and humane space for receiving and holding livestock.

The retrofit and remodel is expected to be completed by early December.  We’ll then begin our process validation efforts, and plan to begin commercial operations by the middle of January.

We look forward to meeting our local and regional farmer-producers, and working with them to serve their processing and product outlet needs, and provide the kind of high quality products, service, and ethical operations that our suppliers and customers alike, expect of us.
