New Entry Sustainable Farming Project and the New England Small Farm Institute prepared this guide for small-scale poultry producers and processors using a Massachusetts-inspected mobile poultry processing unit or stationary on-farm facility. It includes information and sample documentation to help producer-processors with:
- Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs)
- Standard Sanitation Operating Procedures (SSOPs)
- Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP)
The guide also includes practical resources and sample daily use report logs that producers can print off to use on processing day.
More poultry processing resources are available through New Entry, including guide books and online calculators for estimating the costs associated with poultry production and processing.
