Backyard Chicken Processing Workshop, June 18

For anyone considering or already raising chickens for meat, the UNH Cooperative Extension is offering a butchering workshop — learn how to kill, de-feather, and process a chicken in a humane and efficient manner. Long-time professional backyard-livestock slaughterer/butcher Victor Huse, and Dot Perkins of the UNH Cooperative Extension will be instructing this hands-on class.

Participants should bring a cooler with ice, wear closed-toe shoes and clothes that can get soiled & wet. No children allowed — this is not a workshop for them and we will need your undivided attention.

  1. Have to be plain about kids not on board. Good valuable workshop to promote as more and more folks wonder where their food comes from, what is in it.
