Vegetarians: I suggest skipping over this post. For those meat eaters, this is a great opportunity to see where you food comes from and support a local farm.

The lovely Johanna of Whirly Bird sent me an email about a Chicken Dinner Workshop happening in Taylorsville, KY this month. She went to the first workshop they ever did and wrote about her amazing experience here. Right after this post I immediately asked her if she new of any other farms doing this type of workshop, but my searching and her knowledge came up with zilch.
Lucky for those of you in or near Kentucky, RiverSong Farm is doing this workshop again! Oh dear, if I wasn't out of town during this event, I may have just made the 5 hours drive to do this! The details are below. You can RSVP via their Facebook page, or if you are like me and don't have a FB account, I'm sure you can also call to RSVP.
RiverSong Farm Chicken Dinner Workshop
Date: Saturday, June 26, 2010
Time: 3:00pm - 6:00pm
Street: 1719 East River Rd
City/Town: Taylorsville, KY
Description: Learn how to take a chicken from the field to your plate with another of our chicken dinner workshops. Get involved with your food. See how your chicken was raised, and the satisfying life it had before you eat it.
The course is $10, and covers the cost of a live chicken. After we demonstrated how to process two chickens, each participant will pick out their own chicken and walk through the process with us on hand to help and talk you through it. When you leave, you'll have a bagged and chilled chicken ready for your fridge, and a recipe for cooking it. No longer will you need to eat sad unhealthy chicken from the grocery again.
