So living in a residential area, I'm limited to the type and number of animals I can keep. Therefore, while I can have a couple hens for laying, I cannot raise a couple dozen chickens for food.
I just found a local farm that sells chicken that was pastured on grass, and you receive the chicken the day after it was dispatched and dressed.
I've never had meat that fresh. So while I'm excited about getting to try it, and thrilled I can support a local farmer, I know it's going to spoil me forever until I get my own farm where I can raise my own meat.
