The Burlington Farmers Market has gone to the dogs with a new offering from Maple Wind Farm.

The Chittenden County farm is now selling ground chicken backs at the market, a by-product of the 18,000 chickens the farm processes in a year, co-owner Beth Whiting said. Those backbones could make a lot of chicken stock, or they could be ground up and served to dogs. "It's a perfectly healthy, wonderful source of nutrition for dogs," Whiting said. A one-pound bag sells for $3.99.
