Slideshow: Chick-to-Plate project
Hannaford Career Center agribusiness students are raising chickens at the north campus on Exchange St. in Middlebury. The chickens were hatched in fifth grade classrooms at Mary Hogan Elementary School before moving to the HCC. They are being raised in hoop houses built by the construction class at the HCC, which are light enough to be moved daily in order to provide a fresh patch of grass every day. The chickens are now available for pre-order, and will be slaughtered and sold on July 6.
