Bringing Mobile Processing to Southern NH

One of the barriers to providing locally raised poultry has been the lack of processing available nearby. Now, Fournier Free Range Foodsis offering a mobile processing service, with future plans for their own processing site. Farmer Steve Normanton has posted an introduction and accompanying slideshow:

Chicken Processing

Today was the first day of chicken processing, which is normally not my favorite chore. However this year, Craig Fournier and Omar (my farming partner) are starting a chicken processing business, and they are taking the entire job off my hands. Craig has converted a camper trailer into a mobile chicken processing facility that he tows from farm to farm. And Craig and Omar plan to establish a fixed base operation as their business grows. This is a much needed service for farms in southern New Hampshire. I am rooting for them to succeed.
