Chicken Processing Workshop
Community co-op for healthier living
Upcoming Chicken Processing Workshops - coming next Spring 2023. Watch for dates to sign up.
Many of us have dreamed of raising our own food and being more self sufficient especially in uncertain pandemic times. We understand how challenging taking that first step can be because we were there once too.

We will walk you through each step of the chicken processing from start to finish. Don't think you are ready to do the "deed" - no worries! You can do as much or as little as you feel comfortable doing!! We can harvest the bird for you and then walk you through the plucking, cleaning and packaging. Need a supportive partner, bring a friend or spouse for free with your paid registration.
The main purpose of our workshop is to introduce you to the possibilities of raising your own chickens for your families food security even if you do not own a farm or acreage. See first hand how we keep the birds, move the birds, process the birds and then take home your very own packaged whole chicken to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns prior to the event. Due to the graphic nature of some of these activities, we ask that you do not bring small children to the workshop. There will be plenty of farm day events in the coming months for you to bring the young ones to see the animals. In addition, no pets are allowed on the farm due to biosecurity and safety concerns this includes emotional support animals. We appreciate your cooperation.
If you have a physical limitation that may require accommodations on our part for you to participate (ie wheelchair dependent), please feel free to let us know and we will do our best to address your needs in order to allow for full participation.
We look forward to meeting you!
