    Morgan’s Meat Processing in Madisonville, Tennessee! He is a custom butcher, not USDA so only whole/half/quarter animals. Charles is the best and does all sorts of special things for me. Is he perfect? No. But he ALWAYS has the hanging weight, ALWAYS gives me my OWN animals and is very careful about not mixing them, and is kind & generous to boot! When I start asking for something special or different, he invites me in to show he & his staff what I want as he’s cutting them up!
