Custom Cut Sales

One.

Place your order with

Happy Critters Farm.

Two.

We raise your animal.

You fill out a cut-order form.

Three.

We let you know when your order is ready.

 

 

Pre-ordering is the best way to ensure your order can be fulfilled.  

If problems arise in fulfilling your order, we will contact you.

If we do not have any animals available at the time of your order, please ask to be put on a waiting list so that we can contact you if we have an unexpected availability. 

 

After you place your order on our website and pay your deposit, we will raise the animal for you. If you order pork or beef, we will have you fill out a cut order form closer to the time of butcher. On this form, you will specify how you want your portion of meat to be cut (the roasts, steaks, etc.). We will also give you an estimate on when your animal will be ready for butcher.

 

We have our custom pork and beef processed at a local, state-inspected processing plant* a few miles away from the farm and will deliver your order there for free.  Our USDA inspected products (retail cuts of pork and beef, as well as our poultry) is processed at Lake Haven Meats in Sturgeon Lake, MN.  We will help you make arrangements to pick-up your order after processing.

 

 

 

 

 

*You have the right to have your animal processed at a place of your choosing.   If you would like your animal butchered at a different location than we bring our animals, let us know and we can make arrangements for you to pick-up your animal from our farm and bring it to a place of your choice.
