Time is running out! Please help us contact these people to pick up their orders.

As you know by state law we can't sell venison or wild hog that people do not pick up to recover our processing fees. This year we have more leftover orders than usual. Some processors take in deposits to help cover these costs, but we'd really like to avoid that headache and paperwork. We could use your help.
These folks have orders here that they haven't picked up. If you know any of them, please contact them to let them know we're trying to get in touch or to ask them to give it to you! We may have wrong numbers or, in at least one case, the person has moved and we have no contact numbers. We'd really appreciate anything you can do to help!

Kenny Almond, Summerville
Lonnie Baxley, (2 orders), Charleston
Heath Fisk, Edisto Island
Marvin Horry, Adams Run

Merry Christmas from Cordray's!

We hope this email finds you nearing the end of your holiday preparations and ready to begin enjoying the upcoming festivities! We'll be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to enjoy visiting with our family. We'll open again on Saturday, the 26th, for the final stretch.

Until Jan. 2nd: We'll remain open regular hours (9 am to 9 pm, Mon.- Sat., 6 pm to 9 pm Sunday nights) until January 2nd.
Jan. 4th - 16th: Our after-season hours (9 am to 6 pm, Mon. - Sat., no Sundays in January) will be in effect until January 16th. We'll be processing wild hogs during this time as well.
Jan. 18 - Aug. 14th: Then we'll close for the season. Stay tuned to the blog for notice of when beef sides or beef shares are available and we'll open by appointment for you.
After Jan. 18th, please call if you need processing for wild hogs as we do not keep a skinning crew on hand.

We've still got plenty of Cordray Farms Summer Sausage and Snack Sticks for your New Year's football parties!

Merry Christmas!

Still waiting...since September!

Continuing our Cordray's Intervention
These folks have deer here since September. It's possible that we've been leaving messages on a wrong number or perhaps they've moved into Witness Protection?
How about give 'em a call?

Marvin Horry, Adams Run

Taylor O'Quinn, Charleston

Stay tuned for October's list. Thanks to those of you who emailed us about August's. No response yet, but we're hoping.

Justin Miller's buck with a dressed weight of 104.2 wins the treestand for Nov. 23 - Dec. 6.

Just 2 more stands to give away! Matt Bollenburg's still ahead for the 2009 Big Buck Winner with a dressed weight of 135 lbs.

Wow! We've sold out of the applewood smoked bacon until tomorrow!

Friday afternoon...

to Monday morning!

We're smoking more today and hope to have more tomorrow morning. It really is DELICIOUS!

Last day for VENISON smoked ham is tomorrow!

If you want to have your deer or wild hog ham smoked and back to you by Christmas, be sure to get it to us by tomorrow! Sorry no frozen meat! We'll take all your frozen pieces on January 9th. Save up your hams and bring them to us on that Saturday and we'll smoke 'em!

OK, it's intervention time!

Melanie and I have been calling and calling and we've got some people we are VERY worried about. They have fallen off the earth or forgotten they ever went hunting or have amnesia! They've still got deer here from months ago! We need help! If you know these people, call them, email them, stop by their house, call 'em at work, or please just call their mama. Tell them that they've got deer to pick up at Cordray's. If they don't want it, ask them to give it to you! For this week, I'll waive all the storage fees! We'll be closing on Jan. 16th and everything's gotta GO!

These are people from August:

Heath Fisk, Edisto Island

Joe Dennis, Bonneau

Stay tuned tomorrow for September's list!

Bryan Hunter and Edward Hart brought in Bryan's first buck. It was an 8 point weighing 140 lbs.
