As a deer hunter I've used local meat processors for a long time, but I had never photographed them before. COVID-induced food shortages this spring has made a lot of people want to be less dependent on grocery stores, especially for their meat. Because of this, Mom & Pop style meat processors, like Pennington Farm in Rowan County and Appalachian Meats in Morgan County have now become very popular with people who would normally buy all of their meat at grocery store. Appalachian Meats is so backed up because of COVID demands, they can't process any new orders until Spring of 2021.
Here is the cover story that I photographed for the June 2020 Kentucky Living Magazine.
