Deerwood Nursery and Farms
Grant Award: $3,000 — Produce and Poultry Cooler
The Jordans are diversifying their nursery operations to include vegetable and poultry ventures. The addition of a walk-in cooler allows them to further expand by adding a CSA as an additional market for their products, especially pastured poultry.
They expect to increase their processing capability to 30-35 chickens a day. The cooler increases efficiency, reducing the time and stress involved in moving their products to market.
