Cold front here. There were rumors last night that we would see single digits by the weekend, but I think they were only rumors. Cold weather is good slaughter weather. We are doing a goat today and 10 overdue chickens tomorrow. Time to reload the freezer, you know.

I am trying to determine the legal requirements to sell some whole hog sausage in SC. I know I have to use a USDA-approved butcher, but after that do I have to have a dedicated freezer to store it and can I see it out of a cooler at the local farmer's market? The folly the red tape for a small, local producer, I have documented in other posts.

Looks like I have detective work to do.

Time to go.

Oremus pro invicem!
