Why did the Chicken Cross the Sea?

Chickens may not fly but some will sail the seas

"...the U.S. Department of Agriculture recently gave the green-light to four chicken processing plants in China, allowing chicken raised and slaughtered in the U.S. to be exported to China for processing, and then shipped back to the U.S. and sold on grocery shelves here."  -  Complete Health & Happiness

So, if that sounds as outrageous to you as it does to us, you are in luck.  There are still more than a few farmers raising chickens and keeping them down on the farm. One of our newest farms, Sand Springs Mt. Farm specializes in the pig, but luck is ours again, because he has some chickens now.  

If you read to the end of the article then you learned how some brands of Alaskan salmon take a similar path to your grocery store.  If you prefer your salmon fresh off the fishing boat (ok, it's actually frozen), especially if you prefer your Alaskan salmon to be Sockeye (generally considered among the finest of the salmons), again your luck just keeps coming.  We are so excited to welcome Mussman's Alaskan Sockeye Salmon to Home Grown Cow. They're even accepting pre-orders now so you can tell people you have a guy in Alaska who's fishing for your salmon!
