April 30 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am$20
Opportunity to connect with the food you eat and travel into the stories told by Grandma and Grandpa. Space is limited to a maximum of 6 people.
This experience certainly isn’t for everyone, but for those interested it is sure to be one you won’t quickly forget. Participants will immerse themselves in the processing of farm-raised chickens. C& H Farm will purchase and raise the chicks. C& H Farm will have everything set up for the processing event, we will provide the labor. When you arrive, we will give you a tour and walk you through how we will process the chickens. We will share the differences in mass produced vs. farm raised poultry. The conditions in which they are raised is quite different.
We will provide provide everything you will need for this experience. You simply need to bring a large cooler with ice so you can take your farm fresh, farm processed chicken home with you to enjoy! The processing is done in stations starting with the dispatch and ending with packaging.
The dressed weight of the chickens will vary, but generally range in size between 4.5 – 5.5 lbs. Each participant will have the opportunity to purchase up to 5 chickens at $15.00/each. I can assure you that you will be amazed by the difference of a farm raised chicken vs. a factory raised chicken.
We all have been guilty of taking for granted the food we eat without understanding the sacrifice and work involved. This experience is sure to be rewarding in and of itself, but also in the ongoing appreciation of the food we eat. Call us at 913-338-5678 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make your reservation.
WARNING: This event will include the dispatching of live chickens. We do intentionally take the opportunity to pray and give thanks observing the sacredness of life in an honorable way. We have found the experience to be poignant and respectful. Our goal is to make this experience sacred and honorable, but also to bring future awareness to the food we eat that came by way of life.
