Are you considering growing more birds? Join Bruce Hennessey at Maple Wind Farm’s poultry facility while he shares his experience raising laying hens, meat chickens and turkeys, from a backyard flock to scaling-up egg washing to processing thousands of birds in a state-inspected on-farm facility. He will focus on the ins and outs of managing costs and labor as you grow your flock. Vermont Grass Farmers Association hosts the event, and Rural Vermont's Caroline Gordon will be there to explain poultry processing rules and to answer your questions.
Registration is appreciated, it will help us gauge the crowd size. The Poultry Intensive Workshop is free for VGFA and Rural Vermont members, VGFA sponsors and $10 for non-members.
