North Kohala Poultry Processing Workshop

On February 15, the North Kohala’s community gathered to learn an important  (but often overlooked) food self-sufficiency skill – how to harvest and butcher a chicken down to its cooking parts.  Workshop participants included farmers, backyard chicken enthusiasts, and those wanting to reconnect with their food system.  David Fuertes, animal husbandry instructor at PIDF Ka Hana No’eau, led the hands-on workshop with help from Ka Hana No’eau students.  David guided each participant through the process of harvesting, plucking, and cleaning a bird, and also shared recipes utilizing the less familiar parts of the animal (chicken feet, anybody?) and methods for recycling the by-products of harvesting (feathers, entrails) on the farm.
