DEAR NEW FARM:
I am in the process of preparing a web directory of farms
that cater to Muslims for the festivals of Eid where Muslims
can hand-slaughter the animals. Would you please provide a
current source where I can get the information from? Your
guidance is highly appreciated.
This reminds us of a reader mail from December 2006 which
followed an article we published last fall on this very subject.
The article was written by Sandra Miller, entitled, Keeping
it close to home: Allowing on-farm slaughter for buyers.
And please read the ensuing exchange here: On-farm
slaughter regulations discriminatory?
Identifying organizations focused on meat goats will be a
good way to find people who know about on-farm slaughter options.
Check out our list at the Meat
The bottom line is that the existence of such services depends
a lot upon how state and federal regulations are interpreted
and enforced in your particular area.
Best of luck with your venture, and thanks for reading New
us with comments, suggestions and questions.
