Yellow House Farm, 463 Washington St. (Rte 202), Barrington, NH
1-day intensive: Saturdays, April 21, May 5, or May 19, 2012
9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

The Yellow House Farm seminar Homesteading Heritage Poultry is designed to give you a complete introduction to the various aspects of stewarding poultry for the homestead. Seminars are one-day intensives held on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Spring course is our standard Homesteading Heritage Poultry seminar. In the Fall we will add dates for the all-new poultry processing workshop.

The class is divided into four sections, each designed to provide a thorough base in the targeted subject matter. The term “poultry” refers to chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, and guinea fowl. Homesteading Heritage Poultry focuses specifically on the needs of heritage chickens, although much of what is discussed is pertinent to the farming of other sorts of fowl. It is not geared to matters concerning the production of factory layers and broilers. Our goal is to present the best of traditional methodologies in the light of modern poultry science to build an understanding of the kinds of practices that lead to envigorating and environmentally friendly farming, based in respectful stewardship.

An overview for Homesteading Heritage Poultry is as follows:
I. Introduction to Heritage Poultry
