The PSMPC is a non-profit cooperative of local ranchers, farmers, butchers, restaurant owners and others joined in the operation of a mobile, USDA-inspected meat processing unit based in Pierce County and serving producers in Pierce, King, Kitsap, Thurston, Lewis, Mason, Clallam, Jefferson and Grays Harbor Counties.
The PSMPC Mobile Meat Processing Unit (MMPU) is a 45-foot trailer designed to meet USDA specifications which processes the animals, then transports the animal carcasses to a cooperative partner cut & wrap facility for further processing.
