    I doubt there would be much of a market here. Unless the schochet was part of a major kosher supervision agency I don't know many Jews who would buy the meat. Besides having the birds slaughtered in a kosher manner they must also be dressed properly. After that is the issues of soaking and salting the meat , unless the consumer wants to do that themselves, which is unlikely in this day and age when you can get kosher poultry ready to cook in most major markets. Just my opinion.

    Quote:I live near NYC with a HUGE Jewish population. I'm not concerned about that. And any shochet who works legally ought to be USDA certified. The big ? is whether people will pay extra for organic/free range.

    The dressing and such should be handled by the shochet and the soaking and salting is NOT difficult to do.

    which is unlikely in this day and age when you can get kosher poultry ready to cook in most major markets. Just my opinion.

    Yes, you can, but it's *REALLY* not very good quality.​

    I think lots people who inteerpret kashrut more broadly, as eco-kashrut (the reason my family only eats fraee range or home-raised or local meat insead of bying from factory farms, whether technically kosher or not) or in a reconstructionist manner would be interested. If you search the NYT there was n article, just within the last month I think, on this subject. It featured a young man who is doin local, meaningful processing with correct kashrut. He was in the city, I believe.

    If the torah is to be a living document, or a tree of life in any way, it has to include ideas like styrofoam is definitely treyf. So's factory farming. Dontcha think?

    Where are you located, just out of curiosity?

    I have been unable to track him down. I'm hoping someone can point me to him!

    I do.

    I'm in Saugerties, about 2 hours N of the city. I'm nowhere near green, but it's a path, you know? I try.​
