I chose Middletown Market as my deer processor because it is close to my home and because I will not be heading toward my other processor for a few weeks. I brought a deer in for processing. Dropped off on Sunday Sept. 22 and picked up Sept. 30. I knew it was odd when the customer has to ask all the questions and basically fill out the form.The worse part is the extra cost for what I think is normal with all other processors.Extra $3 if you want the antlers (capped skull). It's not even cleaned off. Brain was still there along with fur.Extra $15 for the headExtra $20 for cape for shoulder mountAt least the hide was free.Another item that I do not think is right is the sign on the front door - Now have Venison Sausage and Jerky. Excuse me, you processed my deer, charged me $95 and then take and then make more money off bits and remains of it. I understand that it is part of the process but then you should lower your processing base price.When I asked for a base price ... .they couldn't tell me a base price over the phone, however it was written on the bottom of the form. FYI - Base price for basic cut is $75 (includes steaks, roast, burger). I do not know if this is bone in price (I will find out this weekend when I have some steaks). THIS IS BONE IN AND DEER WAS PROCESSED WITH SAW MARKINGS AND DIRTY.I asked to have pork added and I learned they added 4 lbs....again, I had to ask about this. This is an extra that is expected as an extra no matter where you go.I appreciate that they are processing deer but give me a break with the extras. I have never and will not again pay for antlers to be removed.****UPDATE**** 10-21-13. Had some steaks and before I could place in marinade I had to de-bone the steak and wash what appeared to be black specs as if the venison steaks fell on the floor. I have used various processors and when I thought I couldn't find one worse, I have found it. DO NOT USE MIDDLETOWN MARKET FOR DEER PROCESSING!
