How Chickens are Processed

If, like me, you are interested in knowing from where your food comes but don't have easy access to any providers, you should check out this piece by Mark Ruhlman on how chickens are processed in a small operation.

Ruhlman visited Schmidt Family Farms in Medina, Ohio, a small organic farm that gives space in the summer to Bradley Cramer to raise chickens. The pictorial essay and accompanying video are interesting and informational.

I have decided that I am pretty much going organic, free-range on chicken, after watching and hearing some of what is done to factory farmed chicks. It is not the easiest thing, money-wise, but I can manage.

That is a decision I made a few years ago, misreall, and I have not regretted it. A side effect is that I don't eat chicken as often as I used to do, which is also a good thing. Although I am most definitely NOT vegetarian, on average I eat meat fewer than one time a week.
