On-Farm Poultry Processing & Licensing
Friday, June 24 | 1-4 p.m.
Hosts: Jason & Hannah Grimm
Come learn from Jason and the crew at Grimm Family Farm as they demonstrate their new on-farm poultry processing setup. As third-generation farmers, Jason and his wife Hannah raise pasture-based meat birds and, alongside Jason’s family, grow corn, hay, oats, beef, produce and dry beans.
This field day will be a hands-on, live demonstration of processing chickens. Jason will also discuss processing equipment and share how to navigate licensing for on-farm processing.
- Steps to processing chickens

Meal Information: Snacks and refreshments will be provided at the beginning of the field day.
Note: Due to logistics and the risk of bird flu with a poultry-focused field day, attendance at this field day is limited to 30 attendees. Because of this, registration is required. Please register below, or call Debra at (515) 232-5661.
