Handy Ant for all your homekill needs

Handy Ant Processors was created by Rod Hargreaves and Anthony Taylor to offer a reliable homekill service to the wider Helensville Area.  

The business grew out of a conversation the two men had while out fishing on the Kaipara.  Rod noted that there was no reliable homekill and processing service in the area.

So, they decided to do something about it - which led to the formation of Handy Ant Processors.

Rod has lived in the Helensville/South Head area all of his life.  He has a background in farming and engineering and has been quick to learn the butchery aspects of homekill.

Anthony has been a butcher for 21 years, working for some of Auckland's top butcher shops.  He enjoys living in South Head with its fishing, golf and hunting all close by.

"We take pride in all our work.  Our customer base is growing quickly, as people have been very satisfied with our services",  Anthony says.

He points out that homekill does not mean a drop in standards - if anything, standards need to be higher when providing a homekill service.

Anthony and Rod offer great old-fashioned service and take the time to discuss how you want your animals processed.   Their clients say that their sausages, salami and bacon are memorable.  Why not give them a ring today?
