ASHEVILLE, N.C.  -  A North Carolina poultry processing plant has closed, leaving farmers in six states in a bind as Thanksgiving and Christmas draw closer.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reports Cool Hand Meats closed its doors last month because of what its owner says was a lack of capital. Cool Hand Meats provided Animal Welfare Act-approved and U.S. Department of Agriculture-inspected slaughter and processing services from a facility in Marion.

According to the newspaper, the nearest USDA-approved slaughterhouses are in Ohio, Kentucky, Kansas and Alabama.
