In this episode of MOTHER EARTH NEWS and Friends Kellsey Trimble sits down with Patricia Foreman and Victoria Miller to discuss making a profit with your poultry. Many of us joke that our hobby flocks don’t pay the bills. Let’s change that!
Kellsey Trimble, managing editor of Grit, enjoys immersing herself in the homestead lifestyle as frequently as possible. She grew up on a farm and believes it's important that we understand and respect the food on our dinner plate. We were happy to have her on this episode as she continues to expand her expertise on self-sufficient living. You can find Kellsey's blog, Thistle Moon Ridge, on Grit.com.
Victoria Redhed Miller grew up in Seattle and now lives with her husband, David, on their off-grid farm in the Olympic Mountain foothills near Sequim, Washington. She writes and blogs about homesteading and self-reliance, as well as speaking at events around the country. She is also the author of Pure Poultry: Living Well with Heritage Chickens, Turkeys and Ducks.

She (and her co-presenter, chicken celebrity Oprah Hen-Free) has presented workshops and book signings at major national festivals and conferences across the United States. She is the author of City Chicks. To help “Chick Start America,” she developed the Backyard Chicken Keeper Certification course. Foreman graduated from Purdue University with degrees in animal science and pharmacy.
