It’s not often that I get to write a post about teaching a farmer skill to someone else. Most of the time I’m learning. And screwing up. And learning from my screw-ups.
But looky here. I’m teaching my friend Andy how to kill, pluck (or skin, as in this photo–she wanted to keep the feathers) and gut a chicken.
Processing chickens is a skill that is being lost as we slowly lose our grandparents. It’s also a skill that in suprising-high demand. Who knew?
I like passing on a bit of knowledge once in awhile. It makes me feel like a real farmer for once.
