Hickory Nut Gap is Continuing to Operate Using COVID-Smart Procedures During the Pandemic.

To Our Wholesale Customers

We are committed to providing an uninterrupted supply of high-quality meats for our wholesale and food service customers. As food providers, we must take every precaution to continue this critical service to the public.

Our warehouse will remain open for business, maintaining our previous precautions to protect both our employees and our customers. Our pickup and delivery guidelines will remain as follows:

  • Only HNG staff are allowed in the warehouse. 
  • If you are picking up an order, please send us a text when you arrive and we will bring the order out to you. We will open your door with gloves, load the product. Please do not get out to greet us even if our smiling faces are tempting.
  • All HNG delivery and loading staff will wear gloves and change gloves between deliveries.
  • No physical invoices will be exchanged – email only – HNG staff will date and initial an internal copy of the invoice after delivery/pickup to keep record.
  • All payments must be made via ACH bank transfer.
  • If HNG delivers to you directly, please meet the driver at the door for them to drop the product there.
  • HNG will be outsourcing most local deliveries to Leading Green distributing.

“Farm Burger has been using Hickory Nut Gap for the past seven years.We are fortunate to have a partner that shares our ethos on sustainability and animal welfare so perfectly. Hickory Nut gap has grown in that time, but has maintained their excellent customer service and food quality. They have a small family owned business feel, but with big company capabilities. I wholeheartedly recommend HNG to anyone and wish them continued success.”

“14 years of service from our friends at HNG. Just as it takes our whole house to believe and support local, humanely raised beef and pork, we also understand it takes everyone at HNG to make this happen for all of you. Our guests care where their food comes from just like we do.”

“The staff at Hickory Nut Gap are accessible, cooperative and knowledgeable; it makes my job easier and more pleasant. They are always happy to tell me what’s new or special, and to advise me on the best choices for my market.”

“Hickory Nut Gap provides me with grass fed beef and pastured pork that is second to none. Our customers at Woodfire rave about it. I also appreciate their exceptional customer service. I highly recommend HNG. The way agriculture should be.”

“First and foremost HNG delivers an excellent quality local product that I can always stand behind. In addition, their customer service is always on point. They are always available to answer any questions about their products. Over the years they have expanded their offerings and have a variety of items to check out!”
