Sustainable Nantucket has funds for a mobile poultry processing unit (MPPU) to encourage chicken farming on Nantucket. The goal of our project was to create a plan and set of materials Sustainable Nantucket can use to negotiate with the Nantucket Board of Health and other entities for the approval and implementation of a MPPU. We observed an MPPU in operation on Martha’s Vineyard and evaluated regulations, farmer interest, operational logistics, and estimated costs on Nantucket. We concluded there is sufficient farmer interest to proceed and recommended the type of MPPU Sustainable Nantucket should consider purchasing. We developed a financial plan, operating manual, and other materials to help Sustainable Nantucket achieve regulatory approval at the state and local levels.
