Parts not just parts at Berea College Farm Store

BEREA — In the cold, dark days of a January winter, what could be more comforting than a big, hot bowl of chicken soup?

According to a quick Google search, National Poultry Day is March 19, National Fried Chicken Day is July 6, and the entire month of September is dedicated to chicken, but January, as it turns out (and not surprisingly) is National Soup month.

In the spirit of the “Berea Bubble,” we’re going to add our own category: Farm Store Chicken Week!

If you've been to the store, you already know that we sell our Animal Welfare Approved chickens as whole birds, either plain or smoked, but folks don’t always want to go through the trouble of using an entire bird.

This week, we’re doing the work for you. Throughout the week, we will be parting up some of our smoked birds so you can choose to purchase your favorite cuts, pre-shredded chicken for sandwiches, soups or fajitas. You also can pick up some ready-to-eat chicken salad for your lunch or dinner this week.

In other farm news, here a few upcoming dates to put on your calendar. More details will be provided as we get closer to these events:

• March 6-8: Fourth annual Organic Association of Kentucky Conference (

• March 15: Goat butchering demonstration

• March 29: Sustainable Berea’s Local Food Expo

• April 5: Tree-grafting workshop with John Strang of KSU

• April 12: Berea College Farm annual Pig Roast/Plant Sale/Field Day

Until next time, eat well!

  • 7-29 Nostalgia-Glenmore.jpg Paper boys learned life, business lessons

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

  • Dick-Ham.jpg Here’s why teachers aren’t paid enough

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.

    Hello readers, it’s a stormy Monday evening as I write this, and I’ve been thanking the Lord all day for the good rain – over an inch in the gauge now, and it looks like more before morning.

  • Can you believe such cool weather in mid July?

    Refreshing. That’s the word one TV weatherman described the upcoming days when temperatures will be in the 70s with virtually no humidity and lots of sunshine. Can you believe that in the middle of July? We can live with that, can’t we? We may even get close to setting a record for morning lows later this week. This has certainly been the year for strange weather!
