Hurray, thanks for the article, Ithaca Journal


We were thrilled to receive front page coverage for the Sustainable Chicken Project, thanks, Stacey Shackford and photographer Simon Wheeler. I really love the angle he got for the photo, with Tom in front and the big barn and pond in the background. And thanks, Simon…your caption under the photo describes the project perfectly…”the chickens eat insects and worms found in the compost made from food waste collected in Ithaca.” This gives us an opportunity to clarify that we compost all the food scraps collected from households in Ithaca…we want more organic inputs on the farm, so we will appreciate having the compost come planting time. And yes, we’ll let the hens forage in the finished compost to see what tasty bugs they can find. They are very good ‘spreaders’ of anything in a neat pile.

    I loved learning more about the project and seeing winter pictures of chickens with Tom. Life is all about inter-related cycles — it’s great to see these connections being (re)made in upstate NY.
