The Art of Packaging and Labeling. Elevating Your Poultry Presentation

Introduction:


At Steadfast Farms Poultry Processing & Slaughter LLC, we understand the importance of not only processing your poultry to perfection but also presenting it with excellence. Packaging and labeling play a vital role in delivering your poultry to customers or preserving it for personal use. In this guide, we'll walk you through our packaging and labeling processes, ensuring your products meet the highest standards. Plus, we're excited to introduce our partnership with Rising Tides Consultants LLC (RTC).


Packaging:

  • All the products we process are carefully packaged using either cryo-vac or shrink-wrap bags, preserving freshness and flavor.

  • Your input matters: We follow your intake preferences when packaging your final products. If you wish to modify your packaging choices, please contact us as soon as possible. We'll do our best to accommodate your needs whenever possible.

Pro Tip:

Keep in mind that changes in processing choices may affect the cost per bird.

We use standard packaging sizes, which include:

  • Complete Bird

  • Single Halfs

  • 2 Packs

  • Family Packs (4 cuts per pack)

  • Value Packs (6 cuts per pack)

  • Bulk Packs (for Wholesale)

  • Family Pack Whole Wings (2-2.5 lbs per package)

  • Value Pack Whole Wings (4-5 lbs per package)

  • Small Giblet Bag (1-1.5 Pounds)

  • Medium Giblet Bag (2-2.5 Pounds)

  • Bulk Giblet Bag 5 Pounds (for Wholesale)

Labels:

  • Our labels are designed to meet regulatory requirements and include essential information such as safe handling instructions, USDA Inspection bug, processed by Steadfast Farms Poultry Processing & Slaughter, Lot Number, and net weight.

Choose from our selection of Simple and Branded Labels, including options for Veteran Owned Businesses. We use top-quality water-resistant labels that will meet your labeling needs with ease.

Whole Bird Simple Labels $35

Joint Cut Simple Labels $55

Whole Bird Branded Labels $55*

Joint Cut Branded Labels $75*


Pro Tip:

For a more personalized touch, consider our Branded Label Option, which includes your Farm’s Name, Address, and a Black and White Logo if you provide one.


Important Note: *

Returning Branded Label Customers: If you've previously purchased a Branded Label at its full price, you'll now enjoy a discounted rate, equivalent to our Simple Label price, for all subsequent Branded Label orders. The discount will be clearly shown on your invoice. The increased price of the Branded Label for first-time orders is a reflection of the effort invested in creating your unique label.


  • Orders with Joint Cuts, which require additional labels, will have an increased label fee due to the higher amount of labels used.

  • It's important to note that we must label your poultry product per regulations, even if you're not reselling it, and it's for personal use.

  • If you've secured USDA-LSAS approval and wish to include additional labels with product claims (e.g., Pasture-Raised, Certified Organic), these labels must be approved by the USDA before slaughter.

  • The approval process can take up to 6 weeks, so plan accordingly.

Pro Tip:

If you have any questions about labels, don't hesitate to contact us.

Please refrain from printing any labels without prior approval from our team.
