VT Meat Center
Follow us on Facebook for the latest news, closings, and product availability.
The Virginia Tech Meat Center strives to support the School of Animal 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 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.

You can make a purchase on our website in the Order Form section. If you do not see a certain product you would like or want a special cut, please email the Meat Center at email@example.com. You will be notified when your order will be ready and when it can be picked up, either Wednesday or Friday afternoons.
The Meat Center is located in Room 104 of the Food Science Building at the corner of Washington Street and Duck Pond Drive. Please use the entrance on Washington Street.
All of our products and processes are inspected by the State of Virginia, Meat Inspection Division, and held to the same standards just like any other commercial facility. Our number one goal is to maintain the highest level of safety and sanitation. We understand that some people may not like the fact that we are a research facility, however, our animals get a much higher quality of care because of this. In fact, we feel our animals taste even better.
The Meat Center offers a wide variety of products, but we are most known for our specialty products like our sausages and bacons. We use only the highest quality meats harvested from animals raised at our research and production farms.
Yes! We supply many products such as fresh hams, pork loins, beef rounds, and ground beef to the Virginia Tech Dining Services. Students requested locally raised meat, and the Meat Center was the perfect place to start a partnership. Below is a table card that could be found at the dining halls celebrating the partnership.
