How to Raise a Year’s Supply of Chicken – Free Range Homestead Ep 41 #howto
This is the story of how we embarked on a journey to raise a year’s worth of chicken over a 3 month period at our #homestead . Inspired by our friends and #pasturedpoultry farmers Jeff and Michelle at @southamptonhomestead8747 we decide to raise and process 40 Ross birds on our farm.

FREE PROVISIONING GUIDE
Pascale has put together a FREE 40 page Provisioning Guide. The Guide explains and provides examples of how we can travel eating a variety of healthy and delicious meals for up to 6 months at a time on our tiny boat with no resupply. There has never been a better time to start learning how to increase the food storage potential of your home. I hope this guide will inspire you to make more informed long term provisioning choices for the future!
