In Locking, a village in Upper Bavaria, Florian Reiter and Joanna Kantorowicz run an organic small-scale farm with Bresse chickens. The chickens, due to their blue feet also known as Les Bleues, are a special breed from the french Bresse region and famous for their exclusive taste. Les Bleues can be used as what Florian explains to me as 'Zweitnutzungshühner'. This means that the male chicks don't get shreddered after birth, a practice that is very common in factory farming. Instead both sexes are grown up to what they are best for: The female chickens as laying hens and the male ones for meat production.
I visited the two for a morning to find out more about their business and vision.
