In response to more small farmers and homesteaders raising poultry to meet increasing demands for locally-raised meats, we’re offering “Poultry Production and Processing”, small, intensive workshops giving new or inexperienced poultry producers and processors an in-depth view of the poultry production, handling, slaughter, and breakdown process.

How Much (does it cost):
Register here, and call 609-895-1502 to book your private instructional session with our farmer (minimum of two participating students).
- Please wear dark, washable clothing
- If you are participating with a farm- or self-provided chicken, you must bring a cooler WITH ICE, in which to bring your chicken home.
Bringing your own chicken?
- Please do not feed your chicken after 8 pm the night before class (water is ok)
- Your chicken must be contained in a cage or carrier tall enough for the chicken to stand (NO BAGS – we are humane to our birds, and we expect you to be, too)
While we do our best to keep our students safe, keep in mind that roosters have sharp spurs, and we will be using sharp knives; we are not liable for any injuries to students.
