^glad I'm not alone
I don't think I could handle living in the city very well. Lol. I love being outdoors too much. It's my stress relief.
My parents used to raise a few pigs and cows every year to put in the freezer. We did chickens before too. There is such a difference in the taste of the meat. The chicken was the best I've ever eaten. I have a few hens here now just for eggs. I want to learn how to process poultry, but I'm not quite sure where to start. My dad knows how to butcher pigs and goats, so I could ask him to come help if I ever need to.
To be perfectly honest, I HATE the city. I was raised in a rural town outside Toronto, and even lived near a native reserve in the country a couple of years and I LOVED it. I'd have to convince Shane to do it, he likes the city, but homes in Toronto are stupid expensive, a 2 bedroom bungalow goes for almost half a mil in a decent neighbourhood.
Shane's dad has a small farm with chickens and turkeys, and sometimes he brings us whole chickens and eggs. I love his setup, and the property is beautiful. Forget how many acres. I'd get chicken from them, but there's some family drama so we're just taking advantage of the Chinese butchers, which are way cheaper. But my father-in-law's chickens are absolutely amazing. Best meat ever!
