OTIS, Mass. (AP) — A landmark Berkshire County business known for its humorous signs that's been in the same family for more than a century is for sale.
Otis Poultry Farm owner Andy Pyenson is asking $1.8 million for the business, which includes a restaurant with a liquor license, an old-time country store and 25 acres of lakefront land.
The business stopped raising chickens in 2006, but is still famous for its homemade chicken and turkey pot pies.
Pyenson tells The Berkshire Eagle (http://bit.ly/14RZwvr ) he's 62 and ready to retire. He wants to sell to someone who's going to continue the legacy of the business founded by his grandparents in 1904.
The buildings are adorned with funny signs, including "Limited Edition Eggs. Only Laid Once" and "chicken Hilton, no vacancy," on a now empty hen house.
