Fantastic Learning Experience                                                              “The meat chicken class at Squash Hollow Farm was a fantastic learning experience. Austin is a great teacher, and really helped to make the class informational as well as comfortable. He has a well-organized set-up that I feel will really work for me at home. And learning in a group setting brought even more insights and a touch of humor to the day. I would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in processing their own meat birds!”20140504-233224.jpg

It was GREAT!”                                                                                                      “Thanks for a wonderful course Austin and Kendra. It was GREAT! Austin, you really are a good teacher, and good at making people feel at ease. I would have never thought I’d actually be able to…but once you actually had it explained, and did it, it was fine. Thanks again.”20140412-180139.jpg
