Farm Happenings for August 11, 2020

Posted on August 9th, 2020 by Rae Strobel Barr

Well we heard some bad news from our chicken processor last week.   Nearly the entire crew at the chicken processing plant we use has quit in the last two weeks.   This affected us a little because we weren't able to get as many cut up parts (breast, etc) done as we would like.   But some poultry producers had their appointment cancelled this coming week.   Things are looking bad because the number of people looking to process chickens has never been higher.    We have an appointment scheduled for the end of the month.   So hopefully things get straightened out before then.    Just goes to show you it all boils down to the labor force!   Farming is labor intensive; whether its vegetables or many people have a job to do to get the food on the plate.
