Bluebird Meadow Farms (NY; 35 acres; poultry, vegetables, berries)

"Welcome to Bluebird Meadow Farms - a taste of our country life and journey towards the dream of sustainability on our farm."

Thanks to Andy for writing to me with some more info about his farm and blog, Bluebird Meadow Farms in Upstate NY, U.S.A. outside of Rochester. Some good practical stuff on this blog which I learnt from, especially regarding chicken processing. (The picture below is the set up for big day for the chickens.)

"We have 35 acres, a house and a barn. Currently our work with livestock is limited to the seasonal production of broiler chickens (this first year was experimental - next year we are selling a bunch) - we will also likely be adding just a few layer chickens next year for primaraly personal production.
We farm about an acre - have all anual crops you would expect - plus we are starting on blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, asparagaus, rhubarb and other perannual crops as they come up."
