Local Chicken Celebration this Sunday at the McClurg Dining Hall in Sewanee

From Chef Rick Wright:

"Grass-fed, pastured, organic chickens, grown the old-fashioned way, are still available throughout the U.S. from family farms who care about their animals and provide them with good, healthy diets and lifestyles. Their meat is much healthier and tastier than industrial chicken, and they come bad-karma free! (or almost).

In an effort to lead the way in supporting family farms and purchasing local food, Sewanee Dining will begin serving Local Fried Chicken every Sunday beginning this Sunday.

We are sourcing this chicken from small independent USDA inspected Farms here on the Cumberland Plateau. These chickens are free roaming and have a cruelty and antibiotic free existence. They are harvested with grace and come to us fresh and delicious. 
In addition to this, the money that is spent on this product stays in our local economy, allowing the farms to improve and expand production. This relationship provides a secure continuous market for our family farms insuring their existence for years to come.
We look forward to frying up some of the best local grown chicken you have ever had."

At 12:30 on Sunday the 8th, local farmers will celebrate the beginning of this collaboration with a feast at the McClurg Dining Hall. All are welcome (meals are $10.38 per person for the public).
