About our Venison Processing

Ferdinand Processing is a family owned processing plant that has been making venison products for the last 28 years. Here at Ferdinand Processing, we take pride in our products and expect you to do the same and take proper care of your deer before bringing it to be further processed.

For all boneless deer meat brought to Ferdinand Processing: You MUST have your metal tag number or confirmation from your check-in before signing in at FP Meats. We only accept CLEAN, BONELESS, FRESH, or FROZEN (NOT GROUND), deer meat. The boneless meat can be fresh or frozen, but it cannot be older than 8 weeks and from this hunting season. Please use clear plastic grade food bags or containers (such as Zip-Lock bags or plastic containers. 

We reserve the right to refuse any venison that does not smell fresh, or is not cleaned properly.  Cut-up venison must be transported in clean, food safe bags or containers. Please do not use black or brown garbage bags, non-food safe, or dirty containers to transport your venison. We inspect all cut-up venison as it arrives. The venison is then inspected a second time before further processing.
