On December 5th 2011, Foothills Pilot Plant, a small-scale poultry and rabbit processing facility located in Marion North Carolina, received permission from the NC Department of Agriculture's Food and Drug Division to begin commercially processing rabbits.
FPP can now take reservations to arrange for processing of rabbits from individual farms. Please email FPP General Manager Dr. Pal Manhiani for information about scheduling your processing days. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information on FPP, including fees for processing services, can be found at www.foothillspilotplant.com under the FAQ section.
FPP has not yet received permission to be under inspection from USDA for processing of turkeys, chickens or other fowl. An email notification will be mailed when poultry can be scheduled for processing.
