Western New York’s Members-Only Abattoir

We built our butcher shop with the goal of helping other farms like ours have the ability to consistently make their meats available to their customers.  Starting in 2024, Alliance Farm Butchery will be a members-only butcher shop.

*GREAT NEWS!! More 2024 MEMBERSHIPS & appointment dates are now available!*

Important Changes for 2024:

  • AFB will operate on a part time, members-only basis
  • 2024 Memberships will be limited
  • Once a membership application has been completed and approved, members will receive a link to our Request an Appointment form to schedule, or may call (716) 263-5922.   
  • There is no membership fee for 2024, but non-refundable deposits are now required to reserve your spot(s).  The deposit will be credited on the final invoice (if you sold the animal to customers, they will receive the credit – be sure to price your animals accordingly).  
  • New memberships are for custom exempt processing only.    

Questions can be sent to bookalliancebutchery@gmail.com. (email is the preferred method), or call/text (716) 263-5922.

Additional Fees

  • Large carcass fee: $1/lb of hanging weight over 800 pounds for beef and 200 pounds for pork.
  • Hook fee: for hanging over 14 days (by farmer’s request).  $10/half beef per day over 14 days.
  • Freezer storage fee: for any orders not picked up within 5 business days.  $5/day/half pig, smoked products, or quarter cow, starting on day 6.  

 

How it Works

  • Farmers with appointments must complete the “Farm Customer List” form no later than one week before the animal is dropped off.  
  • All cut instructions must be received no later than 24 hours before the animal is dropped off, or the standard cut package will be used. 
  • We will contact the farmer’s customers via email (or phone if email is not available) to obtain their cut instructions and to provide them with the next steps, important dates, and pricing information before the animal is dropped off. 
  • Once the processing is finished, we will send the hanging weights to the farmer and an email to the customer letting them know the balance due and that it is ready for pick up.
  • Please note, orders not picked up and/or paid in full within 30 days will be disposed of due to limited freezer space. 

Our goal is to make the entire process as smooth as possible for everyone – the farmers, their customers, and our staff.  Thank you in advance for ensuring all forms and information are submitted in a timely manner.
