Background

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 a tent and some covered areas.

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

Are you interested in checking out our solar hot water heater and other regenerative things we do here? We will gladly show you while you are on site!


Patrick Roehrman of MTKnives joins me today to talk about creating your best life. We recorded this right after the LFTN Spring Workshop.

Today is the day you have been waiting for – the day that we do the LFTN workshop rundown. But unlike other years, instead of a blow-by-blow I thought I would center this on the community that we have at LFTN. So today’s run through will be of the superb people who attended the event and what they brought to the community. I think you are going to like this approach.
