Alberta to allow direct farm-to-consumer meat sales under new rules

The province has changed its regulations so consumers can buy individual animals from ranchers and have the meat processed on site. 

Under current rules, all animals have to be processed in a provincially approved slaughterhouse

Updated regulations, announced Wednesday by Agriculture and Forestry Minister Devin Dreeshen, will allow the slaughter and processing of an animal on site. 

The work can be done by a licensed mobile butcher, or the producer themselves, if they obtain their own butchering license.

For more information on the new regulations read the full news release.
