First, we encourage all farmers who raise veal to be VQA certified. You can find more information about the Veal Quality Assurance program through this link. The program includes best management practices for raising veal. We recommend you work closely with to veterinarian to develop a comprehensive herd health plan and to become VQA certified. Next, identify a place to process your veal. Most milk-fed veal is raised and processed in Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and New York. We encourage you to contact any of these AVA-member companies listed here for more information.

If you would like to market your product direct to consumers, many state departments of agriculture have programs to help with direct marketing. Best wishes and please consider becoming an AVA member.
