My crew made a record number of pounds of sausage this week. This on top of all of the other killing, cutting, smoking, packing, delivery, sales, and cleaning work that we normally do.
.
.
I am proud as hell of them and their dedication to the job we do and the people we serve.
.
.
Cheers to you, Meatheads.🍻

Moving day.
.
.
Actually, every day is moving day. We move the sheeps (and those 2 ornery sh*ts at the end) to a fresh strip of grass every day.
.
.
Better for them, better for the grass. Probably better for the farmers too...it's a nice way to end the day!

These tradesmen are ankle deep in what is to become the floor of the future Processing Room 2. Or the Poultry Room? The Bird Box?
.
.
Whatever it's eventually dubbed, it means a doubling of our current processing space, dedicated primarily to poultry cut and pack. Easing this bottleneck is step one towards greater capacity for our Farmer clients (and ourselves 😳).

We got the green light βœ… from USDA for our smoked meat program yesterday!
.
.
As a result, we're now able to add some salty, smoky value to the meats raised by us, and by other small farms!
.
.
It wouldn't have been possible to take this big step without grant funds from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture through the Small Meat Processors Grant Program in the 2019 PA Farm Bill.
.
.
We're so proud and lucky to live in a state where small farms are valued, and that supporting the essential processing industry those farmers need is viewed as a priority here.
.
.
Thanks to Pa Department of Agriculture under the leadership of Secretary Russell Redding , for seeing the value of small farms and processors!

So excited to announce that we've been certified by @agreenerworldorg as an Animal Welfare Approved slaughter facility for chickens!
.
.
This means that our process, and especially our people, meet the high standards of AWA for the careful and humane slaughter of all chickens that come into our processing plant. .
.
We're proud to have achieved this certification, and to have our crew recognized for the important work they do!!
.
.
If you are an AWA chicken farmer or are considering becoming one, you now have an option for a processor in the Mid-Atlantic region that can offer you AWA slaughter! Contact us to get on our schedule soon!
.
.
(Also--we will be seeking AWA certification for duck and turkey slaughter too. Stay tuned!)

We need some help! We are looking for some seasonal, part time workers with lots of ambition and solid work ethic to join our merry crew of slaughterwomen (and slaughtermen πŸ˜‰) in our very small scale, USDA inspected poultry processing plant!
.
.
We need help Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays from now until Thanksgiving or so, 8am until 4-5pm, doing the important work of turning birds into safe, wholesome food. .
.
No prior experience is necessary, though prior experience in meat processing or commercial kitchens always helps. You must be able to do physically demanding work in hot, cold, and wet environments though.
.
.
Come be part of the bridge between farm and table! Message us here for more info, or email to [email protected].

The crew slaughtered birds for the members of Clinton County Junior Livestock Club today. .
.
Clinton County is about 3.5 hours away as the crow flies (maybe more if the crow is hu***ng a big ass trailer full of valuable poultry down US15S.)
.
.
Every bird's identity was maintained from start to finish so each member got their own bird back at the end, for eventual sale to the public at their county fair.
.

I was proud to offer a service that these folks need, and admire the dedication and significant sacrifice from the adult volunteers for the purpose of teaching kids about animal ag.
.
.
Oh, and they were our first customer to book a slaughter date for 2020, a year in advance πŸ˜‰..so take note, you procrastinators! .

Our latest report card, humbly submitted for your review. These are the results of an unannounced lab test of our whole chickens by USDA in our slaughterhouse this week. Note the negative finding for both of the notorious bad boys of poultry, Mr. Salmonella and his homie, Mr. Campy.
.

What does your chicken supplier's report card look like? Do you think they would even share it with you?

We're crankin out some pretty nice birds lately guys. Decent weather, loads of green grass, sun- (and star-) light, and fresh air are all working together to create some damn fine chicken.

Some folks equate an "organic" chicken (raised in confinement on boatloads of imported feed) or a "local" chicken (also raised in tighter confinement and trucked by the hundreds of thousands for hundreds of miles for slaughter en masse) to a true, honest-to-Betsy, pasture raised chicken like ours.

But we know better. It's not the same, not even close. Luckily we don't have to pretend that it is.
