Gionni Schecchi, Chicken Butcherer

August 22nd, 2014 · No Comments · Posted in farming


Our opera guest, Andrew, who’s performing the title role in the local production of Puccini’s comedy, “Gionni Schecchi,” has really taken to farm life. Not only is the bass baritone helping with daily chores, he jumped at a chance to help process our Freedom Ranger broilers.

On Wednesday, we butchered 22 of the chickens we’ve been raising the last 10 weeks. Andrew put on a pair of neoprene gloves and after watching some video on the process proved himself to be a born eviscerator. We motored right through those chickens, finishing in record time thanks to Andrew.

He then helped bag and label the birds for sale to our clients. After watching Andrew, I can definitely recommend hosting an opera singer if you’ve got work to do around the farm.
