This unit would provide pastured poultry producers with the means to process birds on their farms without each one of them having to go to the expense of buying the equipment themselves, especially if they were just starting out and deciding whether home processing was the route they wanted to take. The producers were able to schedule processing days and helped to maintain the unit by paying a small price for each bird they processed. The association also provided educational meetings and advice for those who were interested in becoming producers themselves.
The unit proved to be a useful tool, but after about eight years, the need for it diminished. Producers who began growing birds on a larger scale bought their own equipment or took their birds to a state inspected facility.
