    I am looking for a meat processor in New Jersey. Is there anyone either here, or in the tri-state area (NY-NJ-PA)?

    We took two batches of meaties to Goffles Poultry in Wyckoff (Near Paterson - Northeastern NJ) http://www.gofflepoultry.com/ back in 2010/2011. Goffles was very professional and was USDA inspected.

    FYI: I just spoke with a woman at Goffle who was very helpful. Here is the info she gave me:

    First you have to call the Dept of Agriculture (609-671-6400) they have to come and test your chickens - FREE TEST! You tell them who is going to process the birds.

    The DOA sends the results of the test to Goffle or wherever you are having the work done.

    Then you bring your birds to them.

    Rates vary depending on the size of the birds, but 2 to 4 lbs $2.75/bird and 4.5 to 6 lbs $3.25/bird

    Thank you @below_gravity !

    I have done work at Goffle turkey farm in Wyckoff it is very clean and the owner John is knowledgable and helpful. The prepared foods are excellent.
