Countdown to Chicken Processing

Working hard making food
Working on the MPPU

We are one week away from our first processing day of the season. Once again, we will be using the MPPU (Mobile Poultry Processing Unit) this year. The MPPU is a project of the New Entry Sustainable Farming Project (NESFP) and the New England Small Farming Institute (NESFI). Basically, it’s a chicken slaughterhouse on wheels.

I’ll be spending a large part of this coming week making sure we have enough supplies: gloves, aprons, labels, bags, zip ties, knives, food safe plastic buckets, ice, freezer space, and thermometers.
