Mobile Processing Unit


The mobile processing unit (MPU) is the first USDA approved mobile processing unit in the US. The MPU was developed and owned by LCLT and operated by the Island Grown Farmers Co-op. The unit now belongs to the Island Grown Farmers Co-0p, and shuttles from farm to farm three or four days a week on Lopez Island, collecting fresh carcasses of cows, pigs and sheep that will become steaks, sausage, bacon and hamburgers.
