All Hale Meats is proud to be an all-inclusive, family-owned and operated meat market serving the Lubbock, Texas area. And being family-owned is a big deal to us since it's all that owner Terry Hale knows. Hale grew up around plenty of family-owned meat markets and is actually a third-generation butcher. Hale truly follows in the foot-steps of his family when it comes to his business. In fact, both his father Dewain Hale and his grandfather Leon Hale were successful butchers and meat market owners in Lubbock, Texas with locations at 58th and Slide, and 26th and Boston, respectively. The original Hale's Meat Market opened in 1949 and was a beloved Lubbock institution. Currently, Terry Hale and his wife Tracy run All Hale Meats and consider themselves blessed to be able to continue the tradition with their own four kids Kelton, Hunter, Kayna, and Austin.
The purpose of routine state inspections is to help ensure all public health laws and policies are routinely enforced. State inspections check and regulate a variety of different factors in a facility such as:
All beef, hog, goat, and lamb brought into our facility is processed and inspected by a state inspector who is on site at the time of the processing. All beef, hog, goat, and lamb are aged properly (beef approximately 14 to 21 days and hogs 1 to 4 days). All product is processed and packaged (double wrapped) then placed in a freezer for at least 24 hours before being boxed to help ensure a hard freeze. Our mission is to provide you with the best possible product however as only a processing plant, we are not responsible for any meat that might not taste or smell to the customers’ liking. Age, different types of feeds, and breeds of animals might highly affect the way the meat might taste. We can only control the taste and smell of the meat sold out of our retail meat market.
When animals are processed, they are weighed according to their hanging weight. After allowing time to hang on the rail, the animal is then processed. Depending on the animal’s fat content and what is being processed, approximately 45 to 55% is kept from the hanging weight (depends on the way you have the animal cut).
Each animal is hung individually in our temperature-controlled cooler and all customers are welcome to come in at any time to visually inspect their animal. All Hale Meats is not responsible for any meat products left in our storage freezer for over 90 days.
Remember, when you are looking for a processing plant, not all facilities are state inspected. Make the right choice and choose All Hale Meats, LLC state inspected and routinely monitored.
