Holy Cow Packing Plant is owned and operated by Kim and Waynetta Antonelli in Silt, Colorado. Their business is a meat processing facility that processes beef,
pork, lamb and all wild game species. Originally, the business started in 1982 as a federally inspected facility. Over the years they have transitioned to a custom
exempt business. Initially they started as a part-time business with Kim doing all of the cutting and Waynetta doing the wrapping. As the business has grown over
the years, they have expanded to 3 full time and 2 part-time employees year-round, and up to 7 employees during the peak season.
Currently, they offer 25 fresh sausage, 6 snack stick, and 15 bratwurst varieties. Following the American Association of Meat Processors (AAMP) Convention every year, they try to offer a new snack stick and fresh sausage variety for their customers.
