Smells like chicken

So this morning we had just finished lunch and broken open the books for another homeschooling day at Morning Star Meadows, when the phone rang.  Our BFF’s (Best Farm Friends) at Tomcova Farm in Sterling were butchering their broilers today…would we like to come?  You bet!  


What an adventure!  It was our first time witnessing such an event.  Everything went incredibly smoothly due to the excellent preplanning of Farmer Steve following Joel Salatin’s guidelines.  The chickens are so fresh and wholesome.  They were kind enough to send us home with a bag full!  


Sunday dinner!  Thanks, guys!
