    A quick google search came up with this place just south of Columbus
    I doubt that they process for individuals, but I imagine they may know someone nearby that does.

    The Risslers are in Shiloh. They do a great job, facility is spotless, price is fair. 419-896-2468.

    There is a great place for breakfast right around the corner. We are about an hour, drop off the birds, go have breakfast and pick them up.

    We called our local co-op to see if they could recommend processors. Meyer Hatchery might know of some as well.

    I will call the chicken store! The OPA had a list they sent to me today but the closet are 1.5 hrs away and i would prefer to avoid the freeway if possible- i only have a rickety old trailer:/
    Thanks for your suggestions!!

    I live in the Columbus area and this flat out makes me angry that there is no where to take meat birds for processing/

    Quote:Thanks for the info! still an hour and a half on the freeway *sigh* well i hope to find a good Amish farm! I would imagine they dont advertise much. I am also posting an ISO here at work and craigslist. Otherwise i guess i better start bracing myself to DIY:)
