First off, Delp Family Farm would like to say thank you for supporting us with the purchase of a meat chicken or more, or for just some kind words of encouragement! We got the meat chickens processed last week and got them back this week to sell. The chickens turned out great and we couldn't be more pleased. They are whole chickens this time, frozen, labeled, and ready to go! The 10 week journey to get to that point was a fun experience, along with some good old fashion hard work. But, it's all worth it for our family and for yours too! It's so awesome to sit at the supper table and know where your food comes from. If you haven't ever experienced farm fresh food, I highly recommend it.
On a side note, a fun little story. The day the chickens were processed, we were all up early to round up the chickens and get them ready for transport. My wife had the duty of wrangling all the chickens inside the chicken tractor. I was very impressed with how she could maneuver within the chicken tractor, secure each one safely, and then hand to me to be put into transport cages. Our kids were in charge of entertaining us and the chickens. Eventually they will get the chicken wrangling duties! But- Just stepping back and "looking" at all of this, it makes you think of the old days. Times were simpler, families worked together, and families played together...Some how, some way, maybe we can all get back to that... "We gotta go back"... (Joey and Rory Song) says it all... Thanks for checking in! -RJ
