Tum Tum's Black Gilt Meats (Graham, Simone, & Tom) provide professional slaughter service in the Yukon Mobile Abattoir which allows inspected red meat to be sold at the retail level in the Yukon market place.

When you reserve local meat from a farmer, be sure to let them know when inspection is required. The farmer can then call us and we will help with the arrangements required to provide Yukon government inspected meat. To avoid disappointment, please make arrangements as early as possible.
