Humane processing of your animals is our number one priority and we are very fortunate to have had John Taylor (1 Shot JT) as our mobile ranch butcher. John served Sonoma, Napa, Marin and the surrounding counties for over 30 years. John did a short stint of retirement last year, but we are happy to have him on our Willowside Mobile Slaughter truck training the next up and coming ranch slaughterer. They are guaranteed to be nothing but professional and humane when it comes to harvesting your livestock.
Since the purchase of Willowside Meats in 2019, Chris Peterson (owner) has integrated the mobile slaughtering operation with Willowside Meats making the process easier for his customers. We are thankful that JT is happy to help us out and teach his ways to the next generation of ranch slaughtering.
How it Works
The Willowside Mobile Slaughter truck is truly unique in that it is fully equipped to take care of your animal right on your farm, which is a far less stressful situation for your livestock when compared to hauling to the nearest slaughterhouse. It is also the only refrigerated slaughter truck in the area, which is going to be extremely beneficial during those hot summer months. The slaughter truck brings all the necessary equipment, and leaves hardly a trace of the work that has been done. After the carcass is skinned and cleaned, it is hung up in the box attached to the truck. From there the carcass is hauled back to Willowside Meats for further processing.
To schedule a mobile ranch slaughter, please call the shop at (707)546-8404.
Please note that during our busy season, May through September, the kill schedule can become booked out a few weeks in advance.
