    @kl8ton are you allowed to kill / butcher your own and sell them? Plenty round here do, but it's not officially allowed. For larger animals we are not officially allowed to kill and butcher for our own consumption, must be done at an abatoir.
    To my knowledge, yes.  I am sure I can't sell directly to restaurants and grocery stores.  I will have to look into where the line is drawn.


    @kl8ton around here we can raise what you want for your own consumption, as long as you have the property as the township mandates.  How they come up with some things I do not know. 1/5 acre per fowl, min of 5 acres to have pigs, then one for every additional half acre you own. Beef I believe starts at 10 acres then 1 for every 1 you own.  Sheep and goats: minimum 2 acres and one for every additional half.....
    Again, I applaude your effort.

    Freedom rangers are the breed we liked for the ability for them to free range in the open as you said. They are better tasting for that reason.  Seeing the Cornish not being able to stand and just feed/stuff their beaks all day was just not right in my opinion. Commercially I get it, but was not right for us.  Having a place that processes them for you as you described sounds like a perfect system.

    I would love to follow a thread of yours as they progress with this flock of birds. If you are interested that is.  Can't speak for all, as I think many do not want to admit what meat really is.  Even my wife - if eating a good steak/lamb chop/pork something.... if she pictures the animal in her head she will just stop and she is done for the meal. Sometimes it actually works to my favor and I get a double portion.

    This is going to be great to watch. Wish I was nearby to assist, as I happily would.

    Fantastic view.  Glad someone got a little relaxing in today.  You should invite @YukonRon and maybe he could fall asleep there.
  • Re: Cap steaks and homemade bread

    Looks great!  I too unroll the rolled cap steaks. What is better is if you can be there when they are cutting them off the whole roast.  Ask if you can have the entire cap tied as 1 roast, then take home and custom cut it how you wish. My Costco will do that for me,but only if I am there in person and wait. I can not place an order for one.
