Humble beginnings - Founded in 1986 by Jimmy Couch, The Home Processor began as a simple butcher supply mail order catalog serving the southeast US and beyond. In 1999 The Home Processor transitioned from the mail order catalog to an online internet-based store. We were one of the first in the industry to do so, and at that time, we barely even knew what "internet" was.
Now, over 35 years later, we continue to provide quality meat processing supplies to home and commercial processors alike. Jimmy instilled a knowledge of the industry into our small staff that can't be duplicated. Today, we appreciate each and every customer who helped us become who we are today.
Jimmy Couch - has lived in the North Georgia Mountains his entire life. Jimmy started as a local butcher in this area, but quickly gained meat processing, seasoning and industry knowledge unlike any other. After years in the local butcher shops, Jimmy eventually opened his own deer cooler - processor. Many area processors leaned on Jimmys vast knowledge and abilities to guide their own shops. It was then that Jimmy decided to put his knowledge to work and create the mail order catalog that went on to become The Home Processor. Jimmy has worked for many years hand selecting only the finest and best quality products sold. Those years of dedication, hard work, and finest product selections can be found right here on The Home Processor.
