Commitment to Chicken
Two hundred chicks are now in residence on the farm. We are going to be raising meat birds for sale. For the past two years we raised chicken just for our own consumption. This year we are expanding. We are also investigating how to out-source the harvest. None of the butchers in our area process chicken. We hope the Amish community nearby may offer some good options for us.
Our chickens will be technically free range and grass fed. Rob is working on a new design for our chicken tractors to make them lighter and easier to manage. The new tractors are looking great. As soon as we have a completed model I'll post a picture.
