Went to a farm/pub and killed, de-feathered, and gutted a chicken. I’ve never done anything like this before but I thought if I’m going to continue to eat meat I should do this. It’s very easy to buy from a supermarket so being part of the process was important to me. The road to this place was incredibly muddy and at parts we had to drive on peoples farms to get through. It was definitely worth it and one of the best meals I’ve had so far. Probably shouldn’t have named my chicken though.

The beauty of a well-planned garden bed, the warmth of the greenhouse on a Spring day, the feeling of the sun on my shoulders, the ability to can and freeze the harvest to feed my family year round, the excitement of trying new varieties, and I am proud to participate in a growing agricultural community.”⠀

Most of the cattle I’ve seen down here are “Brahman” and are grassfed. Originally from India, this breed tolerates the heat better than breeds like Angus, which are originally from Scotland. The most noticeable difference in these animals is the large hump, which is a mixture of fat and muscle tissue. We’ve been eating lots of beef and fresh fish during our trip! PC: Pinterest/unknown. I tried to get some photos but I blew out my knee surfing in day 2 and have been pretty much immobile since. At least I have great food and strong sun while I heal! Have a great day!
