You’re looking at the interior of a trailer. But it’s not just any trailer it’s the first mobile processing unit for poultry on Long Island, and the proud new owners are Holly and Chris Browder of Browder’s Birds, the free-range organic chicken farm on the North Fork.
The Browders were able to take advantage of a grant from Long Island Regional Economic Development Council for the unit.
The development council is helping three other food producers on Long Island to expand and improve their businesses. Edible covered this in article about state Sen. Ken LaValle’s food summit in November. Listed below are the three other projects. And one more trailer photo.
L&G Fisheries : Twin Trawl Technology: Commercial fishing enterprise to acquire and install twin trawl equipment for its 90′ fishing and processing vessel.
Cor-J Seafood: Fish processing and distribution company to renovate a facility and install flake ice making machinery critical for growth.
Martin Sidor Farms: Expansion of a potato chip manufacturing operation and tour facility including museum on the History of Long Island Potato Farming.
