|A happy chicken at Slagel Family Farm|
However, they need some help to raise money to purchase the facility as well as prevent any other owner from acquiring the facility and using the cruel cages. On January 28, eat chili to free the chickens. The chili cook-off at Red Door features chef Troy Graves along with Mark Steuer (Carriage House), Matt Troost (Three Aces), John Manion (La Sirena Clandestina), Enoch Simpson (Endgrain), Eric Mansavage (Farmhouse), Rob and Allie Levitt (The Butcher & Larder), and Art and Chelsea Jackson (Pleasant House Bakery).
Tickets for the cook-off cost $25 and include one cocktail. All proceeds go to the “Chicken Freedom Project.” Donations are also accepted on Slagel’s website.
