After a population explosion in Spring the time has come to reduce our chicken numbers on the farm. This week we take you through the entire process of turning our birds into food with a special emphasis on using the whole bird and not letting anything go to waste.

If you'd like to learn a little more about, or get some new ideas on, how to get the most out of your expired chickens, then this episode is for you.

Pascale has put together a FREE 40 page Provisioning Guide. The Guide explains and provides examples of how we can travel eating a variety of healthy and delicious meals for up to 6 months at a time on our tiny boat with no resupply. There has never been a better time to start learning how to increase the food storage potential of your home. I hope this guide will inspire you to make more informed long term provisioning choices for the future!
