Description

Join NOFA RI for a unique and educational tour of Meatworks, a USDA-inspected meat processing facility in Westport, MA. This is a state of the art facility designed to the highest animal welfare and humane handling standards, food safety standards, and full traceability. This tour should appeal to established and beginning livestock farmers, small scale farmers and consumers interested in learning more about processing, animal handling meat cutting and value added processing, such as smokehouse and dry aging capability.


Owned and operated by the Livestock Institute, Meatworks looks to have a positive impact on our local food system, facilitate the farmer-processor relationship and support livestock farming throughout southern New England.
