The demand for local meat at farmers markets across the Ozarks is growing so fast, lake area farmers can hardly keep up.
Sun Farms owner Larry Dennis tells KY 3 TV he is on the schedule for his cattle to be processed at an area plant, but it’s not every month like it used to be.
Numerous processing plants across the state are experiencing slow downs due to COVID 19 shortages and restrictions.
Patrice Jennings, manager of Go Farms also tells KY 3 TV the main reason why people are getting their meats locally continues to be price, which for them is usually 3 times lower than the big box stores.
