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. 

Visit us at the Meat Center on Wednesdays 1:00-4:00 PM and Fridays 1:00-5:30 PM.

Visit us at the Meat Center, located in Room 104 of the Food Science Building at the corner of Washington Street and Duck Pond Drive. Our hours are Wednesdays 1:00-4:00 PM and Fridays 1:00-5:30 PM.

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 do offer "freezer" meat (Beef sides, whole and half pork carcasses, and whole lambs). These choices are available on the order form, but please check availability by email first.


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. Look for table cards at the dining halls celebrating the partnership.
