The Virginia Tech Meat Center strives to support the Department of Animal and Poultry Sciences, the University, and the Commonwealth of Virginia by facilitating teaching, research, and extension. Through practical hands on instruction, service learning, continuous research and outreach events, the Virginia Tech Meat Center promotes a safe and educational environment for all. 

While the VT Meat Center is a hub for teaching and research, it also operates as a fully functional, state inspected processing plant, offering a unique educational experience to student employees who participate in animal processing, fabrication, sanitation, and retail sales. Due to the nature of this program, we are able to produce high quality meat.  

In an effort to serve our overall mission and act as a better steward of resources, the VT Meat Center offers meat retail sales to the public. 

Online ordering will open each week on Monday mornings (before lunch) and remain open until Tuesday at 12PM (unless stated otherwise on our Facebook page). 

Pick-ups will be on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 1 PM- 4 PM. Additional order pickup times will be Friday's from 4 PM-5:30 PM. Any orders not picked up by 5:30PM on Friday will be returned to inventory. 

Please follow us on Facebook for information on closings and product availability. Or contact us at meatcenter@vt.edu or (540) 231 -3318.
