My Trip to the Chicken Processor

I wake up extra early when I take a trip to the chicken processor. This time, you’re coming along with me as I prepare for a big party at my house and will have many mouths to feed. My Rock Cornish hens are in the back of my truck and I’m headed outside of Boston to leave them with the processor to be “processed.”  At the end of the day, they will be ready for pick up  packaged just like in the supermarket – but much, much better!

If you are a strict vegetarian, you may not like this video.  Understand, that the reason I grow my own food is for the health and well-being of my family and to raise livestock in a humane way. My intention is always to eat the food. If you do eat chicken, this video will relieve you, because you can rest assured that I have raised these chickens, humanely without chemicals and added hormones, which makes the chickens’ lives better and makes the quality of the chicken meat, superb.

I like my chicken processor, Walter, because he and his family have been eating foods (“soup to nuts”) that he has grown for over 35 years.  Walter is from the old school and understands that doing things the old fashioned way is better for everyone involved. Especially, the chickens.
