Backyard Poultry Workshop Day

About 40 people showed at Pete & Jen’s Backyard Birds in Concord as our own Jennifer Hashley played host to a poultry field school as part of the NOFA/Mass Statewide Backyard Poultry Workshop Day. Participants saw firsthand what a successful pasture-raised poultry business looks like in New England, checking out the broiler and layer operations while Pete and Jen revealed their tricks of the trade. The mobile poultry processing unit was there, too, and participants even got to witness some (unplanned) on-site MPPU repairs!

Here we are, just moments before our Livestock Field School weather karma finally caught up with us. Luckily, the rain didn’t last long, and we were able to all fit under a roof to learn about feed and equipment selection.

These chicks were old enough to get out into the fresh air – and lucky enough to be born on a farm where they will be raised on pasture.
