For those of you who have seen Food Inc. you have no doubt longed for your own version of Joel Salatin’s PolyFace Farm right here in San Diego. Well we have found it in Curtis Womach who is based in Julian and runs Womach Ranch. Womach Ranch chickens are what we have always idealized our grocery store chickens to be, actually “free range”. Their diet consists of grass, organic feed and whatever tasty bugs they can scratch up.
You can find these chickens for sale at the Hillcrest Farmers Market every Sunday from 9am-12pm, but get there early, Curtis tells me they usually sell out before noon. For those of you who aren’t early birds you can sample his fare at the always-delicious Linkery.
