Whether you’re experienced at raising meat birds or just getting started with your flock, an important consideration is how you’ll harvest your birds. This step in the backyard-to-table process can be the most exciting as you anticipate the delicious dinners to come. It can also be the most emotional — after all, you’ve been nurturing those birds since they were chicks. Fortunately, our Poultry Harvest Station, designed by Roots & Harvest staff, makes the harvesting process efficient and humane.
