This is by far our most popular class and probably our favorite to teach. A 1/2 day class, Grant goes in depth with you and explains everything you've ever wanted to know about raising, pasturing, and butchering your own meat chickens.

This is a very hands on class and you'll be butchering your own bird right along with Grant. Price includes 1 meat bird. Other for sale as well.
