Poultry Farm Visit

On Saturday, September 7th, our class visited Georgie Cartanza’s poultry farm.   As a class we broke down many common misconceptions of the poultry industry.  Some of the largest being the use of hormones and antibiotics to make the chickens grow larger rather than years of breeding and ideal growth conditions.  We then had the opportunity to explore the chicken houses first hand filled with chicks that just arrived days ago! One of the neatest things I learned during the trip was the constraints of organic vs. ordinary poultry farmers.
