Poultry processing for small farms and homesteads

Tea Hills Farms, which raises poultry on pasture and runs its own state-inspected on-farm processing facility, hosts the Poultry Processing for the Small Farm and Homestead Workshop from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 10, at 269 Township Road 2450 in Loudonville.

Participants will tour the facility and get hands-on training in start-to-finish poultry processing. They’ll learn, too, about processing regulations, equipment and packaging and will tour the pasture and see shelter designs.

The event is part of the Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series. Registration is $80 for members of the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association, a series co-sponsor, and $100 for nonmembers. Includes lunch and two processed chickens. Space is limited. Register online.
