USDA Inspection Application In Process

Posted by Walter Jeffries (Creator)

Our USDA application is in process. I have a few items on my list that I'm working on changing in the butcher shop and then we'll have our first official walk-through with the regional head of inspection. I'm hoping that will be this coming month so maybe we'll have USDA inspection before the end of the year and be able to start shipping packages interstate! A big step!

Meanwhile, you might find these two posts about the new Porchetta and Dry Rub Maple Bacon and back story on the whole topic of cured vs uncured natural celery salt cures interesting... 

Once we can start shipping we'll be contacting people to finalize what you would like in your pork packages with options to change things around a bit as we have several new types of sausage, corn pork, dry rub bacon, about to be released salt pork, the porchetta and other goodies in addition to what we had when we first opened under Vermont state inspection.

We've had snow for about two weeks now here on Sugar Mountain. Down in the valleys it is still fall, e.g., no snow, but at our higher elevation we tend to see the white stuff sooner. Hopefully that will be good news for the ski areas. Last year was a normal snow year but the year before was a low snow year.

Happy holidays to everyone!
