Lots of requests on how I cut up a chicken. This information is great for those that raise their own meat birds and are sick of serving it all as a baked chicken and also for those that want to purchase a whole chicken at the grocery store and cut it up themselves. It saves a bit of money to cut up a chicken yourself because you aren't paying for the processing.
These are some of my new products for sale at my country store (see tab at top). I've been selling them in the winter Farmer's Markets and they are hard to keep in stock!
Clear Skin Exfoliating Scrub 4 oz This stuff has been in the making for about 6 months and I finally have an amazing recipe that cleans your skin, reduces blackheads around nose, exfoliates/smooths your skin, & evens skin tone! This scrub is awesome. To use: wet face with warm water pat dry, scrub face using quarter size amount. The product will warm your skin. Scrub for 1 minute all over face, let sit another 2-3 minutes until it starts to cool off. Rinse off. Marvel at your soft skin. $12 *Best used with Clear Skin Oils to hydrate after exfoliating.
Honey Rum Lip Exfoliant 2 oz. Rub 1/2 a pea size of this stuff all over your lips, lick or wipe off. The oils help to treat new lip skin while getting rid of the dead skin. Smells great! Beware, can become addicting- contains several uses. $8
Eucaluptus Mint Conditioner 16 oz For months now people have been asking me if I've created a great natural conditioner yet and YES, after many many months of testing...I do! This is not only fantastic for your hair, leaving it healthy and silky but it's also amazing in the shower as the steam mixes with the Eucalyptus and Mint essential oils. Talk about a therapeutic experience! $14
Re-usable soap scrubby! Trying to come up with a great scrubby that holds the soap bar for washing, is re-usable, and hangs to dry without taking the soap bar out. I did it, finally. LOVE my new design which the soap tucks right inside (also works for left over pieces of soap) and has a mesh loop for hanging in the shower. Scrubby lathers well and keeps your soap bar from melting on the shower/bath ledge. If you want to run your scrubby through the wash, you can! Just lay flat to dry or hang back up in your shower when finished. $10
Shave Disks! Easy to use shave disk great for men and women. Women, just grab the disk and rub onto legs, underarms, or bikini line for a close, easy shave. Men, use directly onto face by holding disk OR use a nifty from the 50's badger brush and shave tray to put on. I have lots of requests from elderly gentlemen for a shave disk and now I can hand them one! Chunks of raw honey make this a replenishing bar, essential to shaving while betonite clay helps to keep your razor sharp. $4

I raised 20 Cornish x and butchered 10 of them today by hand. That means, hot water bathed them over a fire and hand plucked them. We mainly butchered the roosters that have gotten much larger (and are feed hoggers) than the hens. The meat was gorgeous. I kept two as whole birds to do baked chicken and the rest I cut up. The whole process: kill, water bath, pluck, gut, cut up took about 6 hours including setup. This is how they turned out! I am very impressed with the quality of meat.
whole chicken. Weighing out at 5.2 pounds. Nice size.
Drummies with skin on to keep them moist.
Tenderloins, perfect for little kids.
Wings! We love spicy wings with a cold beer. In fact, that's my reward :)
These breasts are beautiful.
Hearts and gizzards. Mr. Hunky loves himself some gizzards.
