Project Spec Sheet:

Valley Natural Meats (317 KB)

This Design-Build renovation created an organic-certified meat processing plant and a 4,000 SF holding barn on a 16-acre parcel. The plant manufactures specialty smoked and cured meats, jerky, hams,and sausages for wholesale and retail customers alike.

To support the sustainable efforts of this co-op manufacturer, this project included LED lighting to replace existing fluorescent fixtures, efficient hydronic heating and cooling improvements, and replacement compressors and evaporators. Automated controls were updated for the improved refrigeration equipment.

This project positioned the offerings of Valley Natural Meats, a subsidiary of Valley Natural Foods, for sustainable farming practices with humanely raised grass- and organic grain-produced meats that are USDA certified.
