Students of our Raising Meat Chickens Course get on farm hands on training. First, the group will be shown how our meat chickens are raised, here on Squash Hollow Farm. Learn about chicken tractoring, pasturing, and free ranging methods. Students will get to handle, and learn about different chicken breeds, and their pros and cons.
Next, the class will watch a demonstration of how our chickens are processed on farm. Finally each student will process their own bird, using their own chicken processing kit provided by Power Plucker.
At the end of the day, each individual will go home with the knowledge needed to raise and process their own meat chickens, and the equipment to do so. And don’t forget… All students will take their own chicken home with them for dinner!
Length of class: 4 hours
Cost: $130 per individual.

Fantastic Learning Experience “The meat chicken class at Squash Hollow Farm was a fantastic learning experience. Austin is a great teacher, and really helped to make the class informational as well as comfortable. He has a well-organized set-up that I feel will really work for me at home. And learning in a group setting brought even more insights and a touch of humor to the day. I would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in processing their own meat birds!”
It was GREAT!” “Thanks for a wonderful course Austin and Kendra. It was GREAT! Austin, you really are a good teacher, and good at making people feel at ease. I would have never thought I’d actually be able to…but once you actually had it explained, and did it, it was fine. Thanks again.”
