Important Message

Dear Valued Customers,

Cypress Valley Meat Company will be providing “curbside” services in order to limit potential exposure to the COVID-19 virus to our staff and families. Local meat processing is essential to local food supply chains, our community and farmer livelihoods. ​Business hours will remain the same for all locations​, however effective Monday March 23, 2020 we will close off the lobbies to the public.

Despite closing our lobby, we will still be available to meet your processing and retail needs. All services will be performed curbside including retail sales, animal drop-offs and customer pick-ups.

During this time, we will be expanding on many of the safeguards and sanitation requirements set in place by USDA and other regulating agencies to pay special attention to staff hygiene and facility cleanliness. We feel like going above and beyond normal sanitation practices will help us protect our employees and their families while still producing the highest quality products our customers demand.

When you arrive at one of our facilities, please call the appropriate number to inform the staff that you are here and what service you are requesting, including a menu of retail meats available for sale at our Pottsville location.

Once you call, Cypress Valley staff will direct your transaction appropriately by phone or by curbside. Please be patient as we all adjust to this new process, and please follow the directions given by our staff in order to conduct your transactions safely and appropriately during this time.

With respect to the communities we work in: ​Andy Shaw CEO

Custom Meat Processing

Whether it’s beef, hogs, goats, lambs, buffalo, or beefalo, the fun for Arkansans is hunting and eating, not butchering quarry. At Cypress Valley Meat Company, we have over 15 years experience dressing, butchering and processing livestock into sausage, steaks, and other products. Custom meat processing is what we do best. All meat is packaged in vacuum bags to ensure freshness and extend shelf life at no additional charge to you.

The Art of Custom Meat Processing

Custom meat processing is complicated. Separating the meat from the bone is a process that’s very specific to your quarry’s precise anatomy. Practice really does make perfect here. At Cypress Valley Meat Company, we’ve processed thousands of head livestock, which means we know how to cut the steaks, roasts and ribs the right way to maximize flavor and tenderness.

Even if you have experience butchering livestock, you may still have difficulty cutting up to get maximum yield. A beef's anatomy is completely different from either swine or lamb. Different cuts from other species are aged for different lengths of time.

If you don’t have the right skill level to butcher your own animal and you try anyway, you risk ruining the meat as well as wasting much of it unnecessarily. If you cut the animal the wrong way, along the grain, the resulting meat may be so tough as to be completely inedible. Why not leave the custom meat processing to us? No matter what type of livestock you raise, Cypress Valley Meat Company can turn your livestock into great products you and your family will enjoy. We offer a wide range of options for custom meat processing and packaging at affordable prices.
