“Next week it’s history,” said Blue Hill Co-op produce manager Andy Felger, scooping up a Kosher King chicken that had escaped its pen during a tour of Old Ackley Farm, in Blue Hill, on September 16. The farm processes around 150 per week, said Bob Sullivan, who operates the MOFGA-certified organic farm with Colleen Prentiss.
