'So You Want to Build a Meat Plant?' is a primer that was developed by the Niche Meat Processor Assistance Network with contributions from the USDA, University of Kentucky, Colorado State University and Penn State's Northeast Regional Center for Rural Development. It discusses some of the requirements, costs and planning that must be considered when you decide to build a new facility. It also provides a case study from different processors, who give tips on what you need to know ahead of time.
