The Mobile Poultry Processing Facility (AKA The Abbitoirre, french for Slaughterhouse) is the result of years of hard work by Sarah Brunner, owner of Wild Chick Farm.
To listen to the interview with Sarah Brunner click here. In the meantime, for more information about the MPPF, go to HumboldtPoultry.com or email the Humboldt Poultry Cooperative at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Poultry Cooperative consists of several poultry and rabbit producers including Melanie and Kevin from Shakefork Farm; Ash and Dave from Buck and Daisy; and Sarah Brunner from Wild Chick Farm.
For those who are raising small flocks of chickens (processing 10-15 at a time) the Poultry Cooperative is working on a small scale processing structure that will be pulled by a small flatbed truck — stay tuned for more information on that project as it develops.
