It's Worth the Effort
It is chicken processing day here at Elm Valley Farm. It is an early start, a late finish and a lot of work, but worth every effort.
The above video is super cute and explains a little bit about why Adam and I have decided to do what we do. We feel strongly that one day he will quit his day job and we will farm full time. We are not sure if we can make a living doing things the way we do. As it stands, this year we will be taking a slight loss on our chickens , but it is worth figuring this whole farming thing out. We will just make adjustments next year and move on.
It is worth it. Farming is not what is used to be and modern practices have given the beef and chicken industry a bad name. We want to do it for the earth, the animals, and our bodies.
Watch the video...
The end ;)
