Chicken Butchering (with Jacob Hundt)

September 7 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

$35 – $65

Raising a few chickens can be the easiest way to grow your own meat. Chickens are easy to start and relatively cheap to raise. They have a short lifecycle and can be kept on a small plot of land. To bring this process to a happy conclusion, however, the would-be poultry grower must be ready to butcher as well.

This half-day class will teach the basics of chicken anatomy and meat sanitation and provide hands-on experience with killing, scalding, plucking, and gutting. Plus, you’ll go home with your own freshly butchered chicken, ready for the oven! (One chicken per registered participant.)

Instructions: Please bring an apron, a paring knife, and wear clothes that can get blood and chicken poop on them. Perhaps a cooler to take home chicken if you have a long drive (each registered participant will receive 1 chicken).
