Venison Processing

Processing venison at the Edgewood Locker is not a sideline.  It is an integral part of our business and was the driving force behind the construction of our new facility in 1997.  With over 40 homemade venison products to offer, we are confident you will be 100% satisfied.  Whether you bring your deer in field-dressed, quartered, or boned-out, we will process your deer in the most efficient and wholesome manner possible.

During the 2014-15 deer season, we processed 3,220 whole deer carcasses.  In addition, our customers brought nearly 146,766 lbs of boneless deer to be made into our award winning sausage.  That is over 383,000 lbs of homemade venison products!

FYI: Shotgun season whole deer carcasses will be processed before boneless venison that is brought in.  We will do our best to process the meat in the order it’s received.

We also accept the EBT Card on venison processing.

We will not accept deer or deer trim without a deposit!!!

A $50.00 deposit is required per deer.

A deposit of $1.00/lb is required for trimmings, quarters, etc.

  • We reserve the right to refuse any trim not properly handled.  Treating your venison with care will yield a high quality product.
  • When bringing in trim for sausage no fat, hair, or bloody pieces are acceptable.
  • We strongly discourage trim brought in that is pre-ground.
  • Any deer brought in after June 1st won’t get processed until Mid-September
  • Pork trim must be purchased from or processed by the Edgewood Locker.
  • All processed deer must be picked up and paid for in full within ten days after you are notified that it is ready.  Deer not picked up will be subject to a storage fee.
  • When your order is completed we will notify you by telephone or email.  It is extremely important that you give us your correct phone number, address, and email address when the deer is dropped off.
  • We prefer you bring in your whole carcass deer to us hide on…it does not save you any money by skinning it yourself.
  • Please do not put your deer into garbage bags, as they are not intended for food use.  We have food grade bags for sale, that can be used instead.
