This morning we went to the Appalachian Growers Festival at Monteith Park
in Dillsboro. There were bunches of people there selling herbs, garden plants,
seeds and other farming/gardening/flowering stuff. One hippie looking dude
had eggs for sale, lots of eggs. We asked him how many chickens he owned.
He said 60 laying hens. Then he said this--I love raising chickens. Sometimes
at night I'll go into the barn and just listen to them. They make a soft almost
cooing sound at night when they roost.
I thought that was so cool. I thought--Thats the kind of food I want to eat.
Food raised by farmers that go into their barns at night just to listen.
