You may already know that our daughter (Jolene) is marrying a wonderful man (Jayson) during the last weekend of February. Thank you for all your best wishes and congratulations!Because the people who help us at the market will be at the wedding, no one will be available to sell you that weekend. We will be able to make our Wednesday deliveries, though.
We have been thinking hard about have a class on butchering poultry. We have finally come up with a date. If at least 6 people can attend, we will have it.
Butchering Poultry 101 – Monday (our only day off) March 29th 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
You will learn how to weigh a live chicken and determine final dressed weight. You will have the opportunity to perform the kill, scald, pluck, and gutting by hand. You will learn a few different techniques to accomplish the same things, and will able to re-create this at your own farm/home without fancy/expensive equipment. You will learn how to care for the carcass for maximum tenderness and taste.
- provide your own food
- wear clothes that can get dirty and bloody (I use rain gear) – you will be outside the whole time
- bring a cooler with ice for the one chicken’s (that you slaughter) ride home
- email us your desire to participate and then send a deposit – 1/2 of tuition
Class is restricted. 6 -12 participants.
Tuition – $60 per person
