Welcome to the Niche Meat Processor Assistance Network

Got questions about starting a new small-scale meat plant?
We have a TON of information on this website- feasibility studies, business plans, budgets, webinars, etc. But we understand sometimes you just want to talk to a person and not read 100s of pages.
NMPAN staff will take yours Qs and give you some As in bi-weekly office hours over the next three months. Pre-registration is required and you can pop into any or all of the office hours available.
June 8, 22 and July 6, 20, and August 3, 17 from 10-10:45amPST.
August office hours will have distinct themes: Aug 3rd financing focus with Ted LeBow of Kitchen Table Consultants, and Aug 17th insurance focus with Cole Williams, meat processing risk advisor.
