On November 17 at Jay Mirro’s Soggy Bottom Farm, KCD hosted a well-attended workshop demonstrating how to use KCD’s Poultry Processing Equipment. Participants raved about the workshop and the wonderful job that Kevin Watson did. Kevin brought in Laile Fletcher and Mary Jo Burson from Crooked Shed Farm, LLC to help teach the good principles of humane and proper poultry processing. Laile and Mary Jo mentored attendees on animal handling, humane knocking, scalding, plucking, evisceration, cooling and packaging.
