Dave Evans from Marin Sun Farms in Point Reyes very kindly opened up his farm to us last week to take a look at his meat bird production. Nate, the production manager, showed us how they moved their chicken tractors.
Cory and I are looking at the possibility of incorporating meat bird production here at Eatwell Farm. There are many details to take into consideration and we have to cost out the whole venture. It looks like our profit will be the chicken manure and happy customers rather than hard cash. If it saves us having to buy in so much compost and fertility then that is a great benefit to the farm.
More details later...
