Poultry Processing for the Small Farm and Homestead Workshop
Tea Hills Farms raises poultry on lush pastures and runs its own on-farm state-inspected processing facility. Join Cara and Jason Tipton for a first-hand processing experience and tour of their pastured poultry operation. The day will begin with a hands-on training in start-to-finish poultry processing, with students directly participating in each step. After a home cooked lunch provided by Tea Hills Farms, Cara and Jason will discuss on-farm processing regulations and equipment and take guests on a tour of the pasture to look at different shelter designs and describe the basics of raising poultry on pasture. Attendees will end the workshop packaging the chickens and each person will be able to take home two fresh chickens!
