This Old Farm is constantly looking for ways to reduce our cost, and bring those cost savings to you our customer. Unfortunately the purchaser of our beef hides is seeing a drop in their sales, and are currently not able to pay us as much for these hides. (This Old Farm sells these hides to keep the cost of processing down for you when you bring in your beef for processing.) Due to this drop in sales, This Old Farm is going to have to raise the rate on the beef processing to $30 to cover the loss from these sales.
When the beef hide market goes back up, we will once again pass this savings on to you. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you, and hope you understand the position we are in at this time. As always, we want to thank you for your continued support of your local USDA processing facility!
