We at Marble Creek have been raising broilers, ducks, and turkeys on pasture for the last 8 years. We have performed on farm exempt processing using both the 1,000 bird and 20,000 bird exemption. We also have owned and operated 2 USDA poultry slaughter plants. If you want to learn how to raise poultry as a business or want to learn for the homestead, this class is not to be missed. We will limit this class to 15 attendees and everyone will leave with some fresh chicken from the class. Agenda below. We will teach you everything from brooder design and management, pasture housing design and construction, pasture management, and everything slaughter and processing. Price is per person.
