A new local meat market and processing facility opened this week in New Haven.
Green Pasture Meats has a full service butcher shop and retail store, along with a state-of-the-art processing and distribution center. The company uses a mobile slaughter unit, which visits meat producers on the farm.
"I had to get a hold of a mobile slaughter unit which we call an MSU where we go farm to farm buy the animals from the farmers, slaughter on farm and then bring the sides back and hang them here and process them here in this facility and sell over the counter storefront and wholesale," said Mark Smith of Green Pasture Meats.
Green Pasture Meats also sells Vermont specialty food products including cheese and will soon add wines.
