Abstract

Maine launched a meat-inspection program in 2003 to create more slaughterhouses and greater convenience for small farmers who were earlier inspected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Maine's meat processors are involved in retail sales and in custom butchering, which does not require the presence of an inspector. With details on Maple Lane Farms in Charleston, L.P. Bisson and sons of Topsham, Bubier Meats in Greene, West Gardiner Beef, Nest and Mullen Slaughterhouse in Kennebunk, Garey's Custom Slaughterhouse in Mars Hill, and Ken's Custom Meat Cutting in Biddeford.
