Poultry & Eggs
Our broiler chickens and turkeys are raised in movable pasture pens. These are bottomless pens that give the birds protection from direct sun, rain, and predators, while allowing them to eat bugs and grasses. We move the pens to fresh pasture on a daily basis to give the birds continuous foraging and to ensure even manure distribution, which revitalizes the grass for the cows. We raise Cornish Cross chickens and Broad-Breasted White turkeys. They are fed certified non-GMO grain that is grown without pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers.
Our laying hens live out on pasture and are sheltered in a movable chicken house, which regularly moves to different locations throughout the farm. This benefits the hens by allowing continuous foraging of bugs and grasses, and the pasture by providing even manure distribution. We feed our hens certified non-GMO grain that is grown without pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers. They also get treated to veggies and milk from our farm.
How to buy
Eggs: Eggs are $6/dozen and can be purchased at our farm store. Eggs are available year-round, although we sometimes sell out in the winter when production is low. We will gladly take back your used clean egg cartons – you can just leave them in the farm store any time.
Stew Hen: These are whole chickens from our retired laying hens. Since they are older than broiler chickens, they have different culinary features. Stew hens are too tough to be cooked by roasting or frying; they need to be slow-cooked in order to tenderize the meat. The flavor is excellent though, making them the best choice for chicken soup. (See this site for detailed cooking directions.) The price is $4/lb and they are available in our farm store.
Broiler Chicken: Whole chickens, organs, and parts are for sale in our farm store.
Whole chickens $5.50/lb
Boneless skin-on breasts $12.00/lb
Legs (drumstick/thigh combo) $8.00/lb
Feet $5.00/package of 6 feet
Heads $4.00/package of 4 heads
Turkey: We are now taking orders for Thanksgiving turkeys. The price is $6.50/lb, and they will be picked up fresh at the farm on the Monday before Thanksgiving. Email us to place an order. In your email, tell us your preferred size between 13 and 22 lbs. We guarantee that you get within 5 lbs of your request. Though we usually get much closer, we cannot promise anything more precise than that. We do our very best to produce a good range of small and medium turkeys, and we make every effort to ensure all customers get as close as possible to their request. However, we cannot control the final weights, so you do take a risk of getting more or less than your request. DO NOT order a turkey unless you are 100% OK with this!
