Howdie All! Well, being a boy raised with concrete between my toes, I haven't had much experience in the world of "outside the plastic tray" poultry....that is, all the poultry I ever had came from supermarkets. I want to raise my boys with an awareness of where food comes from, and how to select proper ways of chosing what goes on your plate. Given that we were living in that homey small town of Los Angeles, it is not so easy.... but decided that my Boys should get a bit closer to the source, so to speak and thus, we moved a little farther out from the City. Now we are minutes from a few organic farms and the learning experience has leaped quite a bit. Yesterday, I and Wife took our three boys to "our" local organic chicken farm and watched them process a few turkeys. It was indeed a learning day for all of us! No lines of turkey thoughtlessly "harvested" in masse. It was a time of honor and true thanks giving; of reverence to our fellow beings and an appreciation for that which they were. If you are a farmer out there, that treats your animals ethically, humanely and with respect, then this is truly the time of year to say Thank you! for being there for us.
