Uncle Tommy's Deer Processing Address 664 Valley Rd, Corner of Mt. Bethel & ValleyOxford NJ07863 Phone (908) 637-6638  

I used him once and it was good for the basics.  $55 last year for straight, bone in cuts.  No processing that I know of and he wraps in butcher/freezer paper.  Just give him a call to make sure he is open still, but I have no indication that he closed up.

 

24/7 drop off cooler that you can use with forms to leave your name and number.  Seemed like a good guy and you definitely get your own meat back.

Not necessarily in Rockaway, not sure if they moved or if these are the same folks.  More Newton than Rockaway.

 

It's worth checking out the website.  They are all ready for the season, and their facilities look great.

 

(862) 432-0387
8:00 AM to 8:00 PM drop-off everyday

Jorge retired from being a full time butcher for a grocery store chain and is now full time during deer season in his new digs in Sussex and enjoying retirement in the off season. I used him last year and he was great.  While I do my own butchering, I highly recommend Jorge and Son.  Very clean, well packaged and marked, and very nice people.  I just couldn't butcher last year after my open heart surgery.  I would send anyone to Jorge.  He does some specialty stuff as well.

FYI - Uncle Tommy is closed this year due to a surgery.  He called all his former customers to let them know before the season started, which is first rate in my book.  The voicemail that he left made it sound like he will reopen next season, but call to check.

I guess no one knows all the problems with the hunters butcher? Highly suggest to remove them from this list.

Lot of mixed reviews, I've heard everything from outstanding reviews to not sending your worst enemy there.

FWIW, the biggest complaint I've seen is the lack of meat returned by this butcher.

It appears he's addressed this concern on his business website:

The reason why you get less meat back is because he skims from your deer to make jerky and pet food that he sells. He even gives you samples when you go there. He also is a rat who filed a complaint about Chuck from Killers kitchen regarding processing deer from his house. He also has an automated calling system to call you about his business even when you asked to be removed. The only ones that would say he's excellent are his friends and relatives

Not that I would ask my butcher to be able to spell 100% correctly, but geez, man, get someone to proofread your company's website!! A butcher also needs to possess some attention to detail. This just looks unprofessional and amateurish.

 

First off, the big banner at the top says "MEAT YEILD" and even the URL link itself has "yeild" in it. It's spelled "yield" - that misspelling right at the start just screams "I really didn't put much thought into writing this. I'm just pissed I'm getting a bad rep on the Internet." Oddly enough, the word "yield" is spelled correctly once later on down the page.

 

I found this funny:

 

"On the same subject people bring deer that are lucky to get 10-14 pounds back. A faun or slightly bigger."

 

I wasn't aware we had a season for half-man, half-goat fauns.

 

"Have you ever seen a lamb chop? Or lamb leg? If not, is a small animal."

 

I'll assume he means "a lamb" is a small animal. Sentences require subjects as well as predicates.

 

 "Mom and Pop" WITH PERSONNEL CARE.

 

I already assume the personnel working there are the ones that take care of the service. What I would prefer is service with personal care.

 

Other little things - "its" instead of "it's", missing capitalization and punctuation, commas everywhere, etc...

 

I'm just busting chops for the most part, but still - if you own a public-facing business and if writing isn't your thing, get someone to proofread your website! This just doesn't give off a good vibe for someone who wants to convince people his rep isn't as bad as people are saying. It's almost like he threw this together half-heartedly in 15 minutes and doesn't really care a whole lot.

Spelling is the least of our worries with Hunters butcher. This guy is a disgrace to all butchers
