We are raising about 40 birds for meat, and so many people have asked about how to process poultry that we decided to offer a class.

The course is outside, rain or shine, but don’t worry: we have TAJMAHOLLER for shelter!

There’s great food for lunch (not chicken)

We serve Holler Roast all day long!

This is a great way to get to know fellow homesteaders with shared interests.

Skills covered:

  • Food safety
  • Methods of dispatching
  • Scalding
  • Hand plucking
  • Barrel plucking
  • Evisceration
  • Parting the bird
  • Packing and storing
