Spring News

May 7, 2010

We’re moving into an action-packed summer here at LoKo. I just got off the phone with our farmer, Dave, and we’re looking into raising some heritage birds this summer. It will be interesting to see how they compare to the Cornish Rock Cross. Heritage birds tend to consume more grass and insects, grow more slowly and remain small, and taste “richer.” Hopefully we’ll have these birds available for our summer shechita.

In other news, Natan and Marion taped a segment for “Jewish Perspectives,” a show on Channel 7 that covers local Jewish news. We discussed the genesis of LoKo and where we hope to take it in the future. I believe it will air Sunday, June 13, at 6 AM. So set your alarm clocks now!

Our next processing date is June 27. To sign up for our June or summer (we should have our summer date soon) processing dates, or if you have any questions, send an email to info@lokomeat.com. Remember to read through the rest of the website first to you know how it all works. We can work with groups as well as individuals.

LoKo is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing Boston-area Jews with local, kosher, free-range, humanely raised chicken and meat. Our goal is twofold: to provide a more nutritious and humane source of kosher meat than is commercially available in Boston, and to encourage Jewish spiritual growth through education about the meaning of kashrut.
