Meat Regulations Cooked in the Kootenays

It looks like support for a local coop abattoir in the Kootenay’s own Slocan Valley is growing. A group has formed, a website is underway and memberships are available.

The concept of a local abattoir is necessary for this area as the nearest registered facilities are about 350km away… a return trip of 700km, and under the newly adopted BC Meat Regulations it is illegal to buy or sell meat from anything other than a provincially licensed facility.

If you live in the Kootenays and like the idea of supporting local farmers and want to “eat local”, consider a membership. A membership form and information brochure is available for download here for the Slocan Valley Abattoir Co-operative.
