When you buy meat at the grocery store, do you ever stop to consider where that meat came from? Where that cow lived? What that pig ate? How that chicken came to be in that neat little package for you? Even if you’re buying “organic”, “free-range”, or “pastured” meats, many commercial suppliers’ setups don’t fit the picture of barnyard happiness you might conjure up in your head.
I (Megan) grew up an AZ city girl, and I never really thought about the fact that the meat I ate lived before it came to reside in my fridge: it was just food. I moved to Idaho and the country, and I found myself with a bit of land to spare. We started raising chickens for eggs. I started reading and learning and questioning the status quo of buying “strange meat” at the store that I had no emotional connection to, and that I had no feeling of responsibility for. Facebook groups, internet articles, and YouTube videos were my teachers as I learned how to turn what we had into food for my family. I made ethical decisions about what felt right for my animals; how to keep them, feed them, and process them.
Come and learn more about keeping chickens and rabbits, and how we feed our family from both. Learn what you need to start your own journey. You don’t need fancy equipment or acres of land to do this! Explore different options for you and your family, and please bring any and all the questions you have.
