WILD GAME / VENISON PROCESSING POLICY

  • Wild Game/Venison trim is only accepted during the timeframe of October 1 through March 1.
  • The hunter's registration metal tag or DNR customer number must be provided at the time of order.
  • A non-refundable deposit of $1.00/lb of trim is required at time that the order is placed.  This deposit will be applied to your final invoice.
  • Wild Game/Venison trim must be clean and boneless (fresh or frozen).  All boneless trim must be in food grade bags or containers (Black or Gray garbage bags or dirty non-food packaging will not be accepted).  We inspect trim when it comes in and again before it is processed.  We reserve the right to reject any trim not suitable for processing.  Your trimmings are tagged with your name and the date at the time that it is received.
  • We will not accept any venison which is harvested from Wisconsin DWD Eradication or management zones.  We will not accept any venison that being tested for CWD until the test results are negative.
  • Our plant is State Inspected and HACCP Certified.
  • Our equipment is thoroughly washed and sanitized daily under strict guidelines.  We follow strict sanitation operating procedures as set forth by the state.  We have a State Inspector on the premises 5 days per week.
  • Wild Game/Venison is processed in large batches (we do mix batches).  Our equipment is maintained to produce quality products and batches run continuously.  Therefore, it is not feasible to do separate batches and to keep them 100% separate.  This would require us to clean each piece of equipment between each batch and would force Roehrborn Meats to increase the Wild Game/Venison processing fees.
  • Billing is calculated on the weight before it goes into the smoke house and it is subject to shrink from the smoking and cooking process.  We estimate the shrink for you, but it is only an estimate.
  • Due to limited space, we ask that you pick up your wild game/venison products within a week of your notification. Additional storage time will be subject to $10.00 per week after the first week.
  • Due to the large amount of Wild Game/Venison received for processing, it is difficult to give an estimated completion date; however, we strived to process the trim in order that it is received and completion to be no later than 6 months from the date it is received.  We will call you as soon as your order is completed.  Please ensure that your correct phone number is listed on your order form.
Thank you for your patience and choosing Roehrborn Meats to process your Wild Game/Venison Trim.
