    Ok, this one's going to be at my new house on Nov. 21st so everyone can finally see the place! We're going to start around 11 am with a demonstration of processing the meaties. There will be plenty for some hands-on experience if anyone's interested. If you wish to skip that part you can wait until 12 to show up and start swapping!

    Potluck:
    KellyHM - chicken, plastic utensils, coffee
    daniduck - pie
    Sillystunt - appetizer
    Fluffy-Butt-Farms - macaroni salad
    cmom - hot dogs & rolls
    SunnyChic - black beans & yellow rice
    Sillystunt - chicken wing dip
    raiderbabe239 - cornbread
    floridamama - cake, paper plates
    Rainstorm - potatoes, cups
    ladybug4ut1 - soda, water
    bonnylass79 - sourdough bread, napkins
    High Roost Ranch - cookies
    peepsnbunnies - fruit salad
    Tim (friend of KellyHM's) - chips

    Address:
    2050 Marker Rd.
    Polk City, FL 33868
    (863) 412-5043

    The swap will be held behind the house and in front of the sheds. When you get here drive in straight past the house, sheds, and chicken pens. There is an empty pasture (with a horse trailer) in the back before you get to the goat/calf pasture. Park in the empty pasture. (You can drop your chickens off by the shed first before you park if you're bringing a lot! lol )

    The meatie demonstration will be in the back pasture (so my dogs can't get into it later) at 11 am.

    The rest of the swap will start at noon. We will aim to eat at 1 pm.

    There will be name tags and you MUST put one on when you get here!! That way everyone will know everyone! We usually write our BYC name and then our real name under it to help everyone out.
