With our increasing pig sales as we open the butcher shop we have been running out of freezer space. We keep very little actual inventory long term in the freezer but each week we need to hold stuff sometimes for a few days as until a customer picks up and we accumulate meat for hot dogs in large 300 lb batches.
This summer we finished off the initial Phase I construction of of our on-farm butcher shop. But, it is still going to be a while before we have our walk-in coolers and freezers built out so this has become an issue. Those are a project planned for 2016.
The other week I picked up a local classified ads newspaper and we found a small inexpensive commercial chest freezer for a good price. That has helped immensely. With the weekly surge up and down of pigs in and out we may still need more space so we’re looking around for another chest freezer to hold us over until the walk-in’s are completed.
If you have a >15 cu-ft, ideally 20 to 25 cu-ft, chest freezer to sell, drop me an email with details.
