Question regarding farms in NY

r32nissan | Jan 15, 201510:54 PM

Sorry for the vague heading. I didn't know how best to describe this. I have been fishing and have cleaned, scaled and cooked my catch. I have purchased live lobster and ended its life either by steaming or by knife prior to cooking.

I am a strong believer in being able to take the life of a creature if I am going to use said creature for sustenance (although I can assure all that I take absolutely no enjoyment in doing so) and also feel that it may give me an even deeper appreciation for the food I consume.

All that being said, is anyone aware of anywhere in the tri-state area (ideally in the 5 boroughs or upstate) which would allow me the opportunity to purchase an entire live animal (chicken, duck, or pig - cow would likely be too much for me to utilize) and show me how to (as humanely as possible) end its life and prepare the animal for cooking?

Sorry for the strange question - just didn't know where else to ask.

thanks in advance
