Had a buck processed with them in 2016. The owners are great people and the packaging was great. When I drop one, Its second stop is here. -Jason Doomsday

Very pleased with service and price. They are fast and we will process and age the meat how you want. They vacuum seal the meat and it last easily a year without freezer burning. Would recommend them, very clean facilities and very patient folks will answer all your questions.

Great place! I'm in Siloam Springs & have had problems here & there with my local processor. I was looking for a new one as I bring both deer & cattle to butcher. Very happy with their service & pricing. Will definitely be using them again, even though it's a bit of a drive.

Several issues to work out before I'll be back. We now went thru about 40 lbs of hamburger and keep hitting bb sized bones.. it seems to average one+ bone hit per package.. etc... experienced good and bad stuff. After hearing good things about B and R i decided to make the hour and 15 min drive for the processing of 1 beef and 1 hog. At arrival they could not find our name on their calendar I had to find it for them, as they wrote it down misspelled and barely legible. when asking for help preparing my beef cut list...as it was my first time bringing in a beef. Which was raised on my farm..grass fed no chemicals...so i was excited to bring it in for non usda processing... the employee I was dealing with was not much help...kept grabbing her hat and putting her head down in frustration while trying to answer my questions. I thought it was unprofessional. And I was told critical processing information that needed to be corrected by another employee. But, overall I think the employees tried to be helpful. The Live scale was broken so I could not get my live weights. Good thing I did not need it, but it is always good to know for an estimate of what I can expect back. I wanted lots of beef summer sausage made but upon finding out the price of it at $4 per pound **using my meat to make it mind you** this was close in cost to me buying it whole in the store, so i had it kept as hamburger instead. To bad because I love summer sausage. I wish they lowered the price for a large order but I was told same price. Upon pick up, and i am pressed for time,...my hamburger packages were jammed into their plastic mesh bins and then frozen. My hamburger packages froze into the mesh sides making them impossible to pound out without tearing many of the bags. At this point i'm not happy at all. of 350 lbs of hamburger -well over- 50 of the packages were torn, trying to pound them out by me and another employee ...they did re-seal them fairly quick..which was expected. And they did offer lots of apologies. This made me think to myself several questions about their operation and what I could expect next. Literally, my first bite of the much anticipated home raised hamburger and I hit a bone, no joking. I was so dissapointed! I told myself maybe just a fluke. We now went thru about 40 lbs of hamburger and keep hitting bb sized bones.. it seems to average one+ bone hit per package. And it really is uncomfortable to hit one of these. I have several children in my household and we are all chewing lightly. Also we make food for others..now we have to say "watch out for the bones". My most sought after....Arkansas bacon /cured pork butt was not what i was expecting. I do not like the taste of the cure, which was overpowering and the slices have a green shimmer on the meat making them look radioactive, and extremely unattractive to eat. (I guess its the angle of cut?) all of which I never had experienced on several previous butcher hogs done at other butchers. This was a Hugh disappointment because I love this stuff. The good news.... The steaks, chops, brats, sausage and other cuts are all good no complaints there. The taste of the pork sausage was excellent. The packaging was good. I liked the labeling. The seasonings on the sausage and brats are very good. The sausage links, although the size of hotdogs tasted good. I came here because many people told me this place is the "best around". Well my experience did not fully prove that out. I might be back if I had to have USDA inspected, as they are the only ones to offer that as far as I was told. If I did come back we would need to have a serious conversation about bones in the hamburger first. I could overlook the rest but the bone pieces did it for me. Talk about frustrating. When I told this experience to others who were there before, they are surprised to here it and comment they must have new help. So.. I do not know what is going on there, I see a couple other recent posts share my frustration. I was not satisfied. But I think the issues could be easily fixed.

Andrew Long

Great place to get deer processed, vacuum packing included and a veterans discount

elaina damante

Good people, great service!

Seeburg Rogers

Staff was very friendly and helpful, They took the time time walk me through the "how to". Then during the pick up they went the extra mile on explaining even more of the process. Great labeled packaging. VERY EASY TO DO BUSINESS WITH. I WILL BE BACK!

Many thanks to everyone at B&R for the outstanding service! I'm very happy with how well everything was vacuum sealed and packaged. I especially appreciated how Scott handled my particular situation and went above and beyond. He was extremely accommodating and helped make sure my cow was treated with the utmost care. Scott and Roxy also took the time to answer all my newbie processing questions and definitely made me feel as though my business was appreciated.

They got our order completely messed up. They do not provide a copy of your ticket for you to know who much meat you had and how it was distributed. Also, when it comes down to your order, it's basically your word against theirs because they do not let you look at your ticket. We will not be returning.

They sell Their Meat, Without adding water.

Craig Allison

Best place around for USDA beef processing. I have taken my cattle to other processors and the quality and service we not even close to B & R. I take 8-10 cows per year to butcher and B & R are the best I have found.

Diane Aday

They screwed me so bad. I took in a bunch of hogs raised for other people to pay me by weight of packaged meat and pay butcher for their work. Butcher didn't weigh one and just estimated the weight of meat at at least 60 pounds under what it was, then called the people who were buying it and told them less since they didn't weigh it but that meant I couldn't get paid for the full weight of processpr meat. Butcher was trying to be fair since they goofed, but it undercut me badly and butcher wouldn't reweigh that order as a whole because they were too busy. Will never use B&R again. If you use them, weigh your own livestock somehow before it goes to them!

I've processed my own deer since I began hunting. Deer hunting is a passion of mine but the real work begins after harvesting the animal. I always thought "if I could free up some time it would make it more enjoyable and allow me to spend more time with family, etc". I was always skeptical of allowing someone else to process the deer I had killed, but I am happy to report that after using B and R Processing a couple of times now I couldn't be happier. Facilities seems clean, the vacuum sealed packaging was great, the after hour drop off is convenient and the flavor of everything was top notch. I am a repeat customer.
