The Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series continues this Sunday, Oct. 11, with a Poultry Processing Workshop at Tea Hills Farms in Ashland County. “Take control of your food by learning to efficiently and humanely process your own chickens,” the series booklet says. “The day will begin with a hands-on training in start-to-finish poultry processing, with students directly participating in each step. … At the end of the day, each attendee will be able to take home two fresh chickens.” Also featured will be pasture tours, shelter designs and on-farm research by CFAES scientists on growing naked oats as poultry feed.
