Fresh Poultry

Anybody knows a place in or near Mercer County where I could buy a live chicken and have it killed and cleaned right there on the spot?

  1. If you don't my asking, do you mind if I ask why?

    1. No, don't mind at all. We just love the taste of really, really fresh poultry and what could be freshest than something that has been processed the same day!

        Since your asking the question "What could be freshest" I would assume you have never experienced poultry this fresh before?

        If that is correct what is the closest you have come that gave you your love of the taste of really really fresh poultry? What other method?

          Thanks. I was envisioning satanic cults and alll that..lol

        2. The freshest chickens generally available would probably be from Griggstown Quail Farm: http://www.griggstownquailfarm.com/ , but I don't know if they'll process them on the spot. I guess you could try calling them.

          1. Kosher poultry markets used to supply exactly what you ask for .
            Try a search for them .

            1. I can't help you in Mercer or the environs.....but I believe Passaic County still has a live poultry shop...

                Funny enough.. a coworker told me about a hispanic grocery store in Patterson which has live chickens and process them on the spot for you.. no where near mercer though..

                I can get the name if you wanna go that far
