Description

Friends,

 

The January Local Food Coalition Meeting and Potluck has been set! The meeting will be held at the Grizzly Inn on Thursday, January 11th (a week from today!) from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. This quarter's topic is Poultry Production, with guest speaker Tom Delehanty of Pollo Real in Socorro, New Mexico. Thanks goes to Veteran Fields and the SLV Meat Bird Production Committee for bringing in our speaker for this collaborative event. The potluck will begin at 5:30, Tom will speak from 6 - 7, and questions will follow. We hope to see you there!

 

A description of Pollo Real:

 

"In 1996, Pollo Real was the first certified organic poultry farm in the United States, making Pollo Real New Mexico's premier pastured poultry producers for the past twenty years. Currently featuring: Heritage Turkey, Gourmet French Label Rouge and American Chicken.

 

Tom Delehanty, owner of Pollo Real, is a sixth-generation farmer from Wisconson . At his farm in Socorro, New Mexico, Tom created a simple, yet effective grazing method in which chickens and turkeys are moved on a daily basis in portable shelters, shown below, through fields planted with chicory, millet, wheatgrass, and wild perennial plants. In addition the birds' diets are supplemented with wholesome non-GMO grains. The fresh air, sunshine and fresh greens in the diet produce the most flavorful birds available anywhere in the world."

Best,

Brandon Cox
