Very nice.  As to your question about fish, let me say "salt cod."  Salt 
preserved cod and herring were staples of the Hanseatic trade.

IIRC, the traditional practice is to do the butchering before the worst of 
winter weather comes and stall the remaining livestock in the barn. 
Chickens would nest in the hay and provide eggs for the winter.  It is my 
understanding that egg production slows in winter, but doesn't stop unless 
the hens experience significant hardship.
