2021 Chicken Processing Workshop

  • Join us at 9am for the chicken processing workshop on Monday, June 14, 2021! Includes lunch and you get to go home with your processed chicken. Using the Honor system on membership to make this simple!

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!


It’s that time again – time to debrief the LFTN 2021 Workshop. Each year, we have a different experience. Each year, a different set of people. And each year, an unexpected lesson emerges when folks get together to share best practices, fun, and deep conversations.

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.

Today, we review the good, the bad, the ugly from the Living Free in Tennessee Spring Workshop with The Tactical Redneck, one of our participants. All in all, things went well, folks got to learn from each other about homesteading things, a surprise session on how to capture bee swarms happened, and we even got to be intimately involved with a real aquaponics installation. It was a good time, and we hope that the relationships forged at this event will serve all those who were here well for years to come.
