2020 Chicken Deposit

Oh, the flavor! These birds have the rich flavor of an old-fashioned chicken. Once you have one of them, you won’t want to go back to mass-produced industrial chicken again.

We raise our meat chickens on pasture, regularly moving them to fresh grass in Joel Salatin-style mobile chicken coops. The coops have no floor, so the birds have constant access to the grass and insects they love to eat. The coops provide protection from predators while allowing access to fresh air. Our supplemental feed is unmedicated, soy-free and non-GMO, but not certified organic.

We take our fattened birds to Valley View Poultry in Bloomfield for state-inspected processing. We sell whole birds only, no cut-up pieces.

We plan to raise four groups of pastured chickens during the summer of 2020. You can reserve those on this page.

Fresh whole chicken, no giblets, packaged in freezer bags. Pay a $5 per chicken deposit to reserve yours from our limited supply.

When you pick up your birds on one or more of the designated processing dates, we’ll take the total weight of your order times the price per pound minus your deposit to arrive at the total due (payable by check or cash at pickup). Pre-orders of 10 birds or more from any of our 2020 batches will receive a 25 cent per pound discount at pickup.

$4.25/lb. Raised on pasture with non-GMO, soy-free, unmedicated supplemental feed.

The Cornish Cross hybrid, a result of the cross between a Cornish and a Plymouth Rock, is bred specifically for growing very large very quickly. These are the standard chickens used by the big chicken producers, so you’re most likely used to eating this breed of chicken. Our customers tell us, however, that the flavor of our chickens will beat the flavor of the typical mass-produced and mass-processed grocery store chicken every time.

We are targeting an average size of 4-6 lbs for these chickens, but some may be smaller and some may be larger. We try to get everyone the size they prefer, but we can’t guarantee any specific weights. The total cost could range from $17 – $26 for each chicken, with an average price of $19.

We plan to have 4 batches of birds processed in 2020:

Batch 1: June

Batch 2: August

Batch 3: September

Batch 4: October

Pickup times for fresh pre-ordered broiler chickens: 4-7pm on each processing day. Specific dates are to be determined. We will email you when we have set each date.

Chickens not picked up within 1 day of processing will be frozen.
