Farming stories and skills from our small farm, gardening and homesteading journey -

pasture to plate.

This episode discusses the setup and work that goes into chicken processng BEFORE the actual chicken processing event.  There's a lot more than just catching and plucking involved on a well run chicken processing event and we thought it might be worth while sharing those stories and preps as well.

We then share a bit of a retrospective on the actual events of the chicken rocessing day and how we run the event.

Finally we have a Farmers Choice segment that answers so many of the continual questions and misinformation out there about the Cornish Cross chickens we raise.
