Meet Kaleb.⠀
Kaleb is an honest, hardworking man. He's eager to learn the ropes and work long hours. You know, it's not easy to work at a processing facility. About 75,000 men and women work at slaughterhouses across the country, earning a median wage of $13.23/ hour. While Common Wealth Poultry pays about 17% higher wages than the national average, it's still not enough. Meat in this country is cheap. It's too cheap. While farmers (average wage of $11.84/hour) and processors work tirelessly in less than ideal conditions, the CEO at Tyson meats earned $8.9 million last year. Constantly, we're trying to sell quality products that pay the farmer and processor living wages, grown in a way that is responsible, only to be met with

Well, the price is fair. The price reflects honesty. It reflects purity. And it certainly reflects the freshness of our Air-Chilled, Antibiotic Free chicken grown by farmers in the Northeast United States. Next time you are at the grocery store, think to yourself, why is this meat so cheap? There's a reason.⠀ Thank you Kaleb, for being a hardworking person in an industry so taken advantage of!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ @bluehorsephoto #commonwealthpoultry #commonwealthpoultryco #chicken #peopleoverprofit #peopleofinstagram #mainefarms #maine #mainebusiness #mainepeople #mainefood #foodie #allinthistogether #portraitart #gratitude #farming #eating #celebrate #country #usa #immigrants #love #refugees #mothers #kindness #generosity

I want to give a shout out to Mama Suban!⠀ Mama Suban worked here until recently, when she moved in order to be closer to family. Suban, I have to say, is one of the most generous people I have ever met. Generosity is an interesting word. I always think of it as "I'd give the shirt off my back"... But what about the smile off your face? That's just as good sometimes. Mama Suban's smile and kindness are so much more tangible than money or objects. You know when you meet someone and you just feel better when they're in your presence? That's Mama Suban. We don't call her Mama Suban for nothin'!⠀ Thanks Mama Suban!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #commonwealthpoultry #commonwealthpoultryco #chicken #peopleoverprofit #peopleofinstagram #mainefarms #maine #mainebusiness #mainepeople #mainefood #foodie #allinthistogether #portraitart #gratitude #farming #eating #celebrate #country #usa #immigrants #love #refugees #mothers #kindness #generosity

Charlie had a birthday! Happy Birthday Charlie! I caught him in the wild, doing his thing. This picture was taken at an event by #mainecenter for entrepreneurs. We were part of their Cultivator Program. I honestly didn't know I was an entrepreneur until I joined! What is the Cultivator Program you ask? Well, in their words "... focused on partnering with food, beverage, and agriculture businesses to overcome the strategic challenges they face as they attempt to grow and scale." Meaning that businesses like Common Wealth Poultry get expert help in sales, accounting, management, etc. in order to grow our business and workforce! If you are interested in this program for your business, send me a message and I will connect you with the right people. Oh, and speaking of connecting with the right people... This program offers so many opportunities to connect with peers, consumers, and advisers that you can't afford not to join! . . . . . . . . .

Meet Musbah.⠀

Meet Musbah.⠀ Musbah has been working with us for 4 years. It's taken me time, over the years, to become more patient. Do you know the type of person who is calm and relaxed no matter the situation? That's Musbah. I look up to Musbah for this. "Don't worry Ryan!" He says to me, as i'm obviously frustrated or upset. I look up and see that smiling face. The words penetrate my mind. "Don't worry?" I think to myself. "How can he even say that?" As business owners, we expect that our employees don't understand the gravity of the situation. But sometimes I think it's the other way around. We don't understand that only concentrating on what is going wrong will blind us to what is going right. So, whenever I feel the weight of the world, I think of this picture, and I say "Don't worry Ryan." And you know what, the world doesn't fall apart and I think more clearly.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Thanks Musbah!!!!

I didn’t take a single photograph at the slaughterhouse last Monday. .
Do you know why?
.
Because it was my first time there. Ever. .
It feels a little shameful to say so but it’s true. The chicken farmer’s wife had never been to the slaughterhouse before. .
I didn’t take any photographs while I was there because I wanted to really concentrate, look, see and participate in what was before me. .
700 chickens killed, cut and packaged - thoughtfully, cleanly and honestly...words you might not associate with slaughter but that was my experience. .
The employees at @commonwealthpoultry blew me away and I’m so happy to work with them. Follow them on Instagram so you can get to know the people that help us - your farmers - feed and nourish this local community. .
If you’re going to eat chicken, eat ours because these animals are treated humanely throughout the entire process - from chick to rotisserie chicken. .

Meet June.⠀
June's calm, collected disposition, along with her ability to translate, makes her a powerful woman here at CWP. I think a lot about leadership, and what good leaders do. I myself never thought about the philosophy behind leadership until recently. Qualities of a good leader don't need to be the glorified instances of manly brutishness we see in the movies. Subtle leadership is just as important. June has a knack for explaining things between management and production employees that benefits both parties. The goal of this whole endeavor is not to make money for those of us at the top, it is to make money for all of us to prosper. If the people aren't heard, the business can't succeed. If the business isn't respected, the people can't succeed. Now, try using hand gestures and equally understood English words to convey that! June is a bridge. She's an ambassador. She's a person that brings people together through interpretation. Far beyond words, June is a person who seeks to understand. And that's why I appreciate June.⠀
Thank you June!!⠀

He, Andrew Taylor, and Arlin Smith own Big Tree Hospitality, the group behind @hugosmaine, @thehoneypaw, @eventideoysterco, and @eventidefenway. Anyone who knows anything about food knows that these guys, they're the real deal. ⠀ In fact, Andrew was the person who planted the seed of this business in my head. When people ask me "I mean, how did you even think to do this?" It all starts with this story:⠀ I was working for Simon @thirtyacrefarm and we were delivering to Hugos. I knew I was going to start my own food business, but I didn't know what just yet. So I was asking all the chefs what was missing from Maine agriculture. Even my 21 year old self knew that if I could just find something no one else was willing to do, I could find security. I posed the question to Andrew, and he said "well, ducks." So I grew and processed 6 ducks. Convinced I was an expert, I raised 3,000 the next year. And Andrew, Mike, and Arlin put up with my ducks, chickens, and whatever other birds I grew for the last 9+ years. I can't believe these guys gave me a chance from day one. And they are influential to my life in such a big way! We don't keep in touch much these days, as we're all so busy creating the worlds we believe in... But, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU SO MUCH for what you do, and it's so crazy to see all that you have done in the past decade!!!!⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ #commonwealthpoultry #commonwealthpoultryco #chicken #peopleoverprofit #peopleofinstagram #mainefarms #maine #mainebusiness #mainepeople #mainefood #foodie #allinthistogether #portraitart #gratitude #farming #eating #celebrate #country #usa #immigrants #love #refugees #mainefood #mainerestaurants #hugos #eventide #chef #honeypaw

Meet Barwaqo.⠀
Do you know the old adage, actions speak louder than words? I'm going to be honest: there are about 10 languages spoken here, and I usually have no idea what people are talking about. And that's an interesting way to live. I think a lot about body language, and how so much of communication depends upon the way we present ourselves. Really, when it comes down to it, we're communicating through actions and our words are secondary.⠀
Barwaqo is a person who's body language tells you right away that they are a good person. When she talks, people laugh. She finishes her thoughts with flair, a smile, and a comfort only her eyes can bring. She is a leader, and her wise motherly instincts show a simple compassion that this picture conveys perfectly.⠀

Meet Shannon and Jarrod of @mainemeat in Kittery.⠀
Jarrod literally bought the first animals I ever raised and processed commercially. I need to back out from that one interaction to explain the significance of Jarrod's action and the actions of other butchers, chefs, and grocers who took a chance on us so early on. I was young, naive, and didn't know what I was doing. I got connected to Jarrod and asked him if he'd buy some ducks. He did. And he kept doing it, as I struggled to figure out what the hell I was doing. That action sustained us. We grew, and as we grew, Jarrod stayed loyal. If it weren't for those small acts of devotion, of believing in my dream, Common Wealth Poultry Co simply wouldn't have become what it is today. Just goes to show, maybe take a chance on a young farmer, processor, or businessperson. You never know, right?⠀

Meet Andros. Andros uses a traditional Cypriot method of slow cooking thighs on rotating skewers over a bed of coals. It's called a foukou. If you happen to catch Andros purchasing 15# of thighs, follow him home. There will most definitely be a group of people laughing, celebrating, and enjoying life. All with a side of chicken. I'm always humbled to see the ways people come together around food. Sometimes we lose perspective and don't realize how many good people are involved in the creation of our food. Andros is one of those people.
Thanks Andros!

Meet Andros. Andros uses a traditional Cypriot method of slow cooking thighs on rotating skewers over a bed of coals. It's called a foukou. If you happen to catch Andros purchasing 15# of thighs, follow him home. There will most definitely be a group of people laughing, celebrating, and enjoying life. All with a side of chicken.

Who would we be without our loyal customers?⠀
Maine General Hospital in Augusta utilizes our fresh, Air-Chilled, All Natural, Antibiotic free chicken in their kitchen.  And guess what? Kasim here is one of their chefs. Kasim used to work in the packing room at Common Wealth Poultry. It was his first job after he arrived here from Syria as a refugee. Maine has a growing population of immigrants from different parts of the world. We're fortunate to have connected with Kasim and his family and really value the work he and the other staff at Maine General do in keeping our community healthy!⠀

I believe that stories are important. Here is my buddy Charlie. He's worked here for over five years and we couldn't be prouder to have him here. As our plant supervisor, he's a jack of all trades. From customer service to processing and maintenance, he's here to serve. 
Charlie grew up here in the midcoast and his family goes way back. In fact, Charlie never went South of Portland until last year. Now THAT'S local.

The freshest chicken, harvested on Tuesday + delivered on Wednesday morning ✔️⠀
In Maine I connected with Ryan of #commonwealthpoultryco to source pasture-raised chicken thighs for my client @tacocattruck. ⠀
::⠀
Ryan started out raising + processing his own chickens, but soon realized that model was not the most sustainable. Now he + his team work with farmers in Pennsylvania to offer pasture raised chicken at a great price to food businesses in New England. ⠀
:::⠀
Why Source Chickens from Pennsylvania?⠀
The cost of raising chickens in PA is significantly lower than in Maine - chicks can be sourced from local hatcheries rather than shipped from another state + feed can be sourced locally, significantly reducing the cost of feeding the birds. In addition, chickens in PA can spend more months of the year outside compared to in Maine which means more grass and bugs in their diet + lower costs associated with keeping the birds warm indoors.⠀
If you're located in Maine or New Hampshire, give Ryan a call and tell him I sent you! ⠀
