Overview: 

Local meat and poultry markets rely on small processors with a range of skills and services.  NC Choices, an initiative of the Center for Environmental Farming Systems at North Carolina State University, spent two years working with a set of small processors in North Carolina, providing a range of technical assistance and support. The goal? Improve the quality and quantity of processing services available to the state's livestock producers and to enhance the economic viability of both producers and processors. 

On this webinar, NC Choices and two processors who participated in the project will tell us how they did it, what they accomplished, and why it matters. Speakers include:
