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.
