Poultry Production and WSDA Poultry Processing Bus Tour...

Share Poultry Production and WSDA Poultry Processing Bus Tour for Farmers

Event Details

Beginning near Burlington, we will load the bus and take producers to visit 3 diversified poultry farms:

Skagit River Ranch, Osprey Hill Farm, and Misty Meadows Farm.

These farms have different scales of production but all have or have had on-farm WSDA licensed processing facilities. The fourth stop will be to an independent WSDA Licensed processing facility, Lynden Meats. 

All of the farms produce and sell broilers as well as eggs and each has a unique production system.  We will see chicken, duck and turkey production, mid-scale commercial egg production, as well as processing options.  While on the farm, host farmers will share in-depth coverage of the steps it takes to be licensed processors as well as regulations for direct marketing poultry. Business and financial planning will also be covered by producers. While on the bus we will discuss additional risk management tools, regulations and enterprise budgets.

Who is this workshop for? Farmers currently producing poultry for eggs or meat or farmers who plan to add this production to diversify your farming operation.
