Please note our business slaughters and sells Halal meat on a daily basis. As a result, we have livestock available at all times. However, it is too early to bring the holiday livestock as the weather is very warm e.g. if you were to select your lamb/goat today at 100-80 lbs. (live weight) by the holiday time it would become at 80-60 lbs. (live weight). We will have the Holiday livestock at least two days prior to the Holiday. However, selection of the livestock is during your visit in Eid day only. No prior selection can be made. Your deposit only confirms your reservation of the animal. Selection of animal is on Eid day only.
7. Gender selection:
Unfortunately, we CANNOT guarantee gender selection; however, we will have a variety of mixed genders and you’re welcome to select your own preference upon availability.
8. Packaging of Cut Meat:
Customers are responsible for packaging your own meat. We highly recommend you do not close on the meat while it’s still hot and fresh. We recommend that you bring in your own portable cooler/fridge and have sufficient ice to keep the meat fresh until the meat makes it safely to a refrigerator/freezer. Once again, please bring your own bags.
9. Hours of Operation:
We are open on the First day and Second Day of Eid from 7 am to 7 pm. Beef orders are by appointment only and maybe processed on Second and third day.
10. Waiting Times:
With the exception to Beef orders, it is at your discretion the time you want to come in. We cannot guarantee wait times; due to COVID19 regulations and guidelines, we are taking additional measures. While customers have attested that we’re one of the fastest processing industries in the Metropolitan area, please be patient with us as we’re taking precautionary measures to ensure your safety. There is no specific time or date as to when you want to come in for your reservation; you are welcome to arrive anytime between 7 am and 7 pm on both dates. You will be provided with additional procedural instructions on the day of your arrival.
11. EID Prayers:
We will perform Eid Salat Prayers on the first day of Eid; an Imam will be there. Please note that we will be practicing social distancing and therefore, please plan accordingly. Further instructions are to be announced on the day of EID. Salat Prayers are after Shorouq/Sunrise (not Fajr/Dawn); please plan accordingly.

13. Slaughtering yourself:
“Are we allowed to slaughter ourselves?” Yes, as long as you sign a liability waiver. We will email you with the liability waiver upon request.
Our slaughter house consists of three areas, the animal building/barn (where the livestock is kept), the slaughter building (where the livestock is slaughtered) and has a small yard with a little pond for you and your family’ hangout area. You are allowed to grill and make barbecue; however, you will need to bring your own grilling supplies and utensils.
Restrooms are available.

We are maintaining social distancing guidelines and will have limited occupancy at the facility. For your safety, please plan on bringing tents/canopy as the waiting will take place in the outdoor area.
