Can't Beat Fresh!

You really can't get any fresher than fresh!  I met with free-run poultry farmer Ryan Zimmerling today to pick up 10 of his finest chickens that were just processed yesterday. It felt a bit clandestine.  We had never met face-to-face.  He was coming in from Arnprior and I was downtown.  He met me on the street; I had given him my car colour and make and he had done the same.  But instead of a shady deal going down at midnight in a dark back alley, we exchanged fresh chickens for a personal cheque in broad daylight.  It was a...
