We are raising chicken in 2017 however are done taking pre-orders. Once our harvest is complete in August 2017 we will know what we still have available for sale at that time. To stay tuned, sign up for our newsletter and we will keep you informed.
Our chickens are pasture-raised in an open system where we move their shelters, feed and water twice a day. Something unique to our system is that we have built our brooder so that they are on grass at the age of 1 day old!
They are given about an acre to roam in which means that all day long they can scratch for bugs (chickens are omnivores) and fresh shoots and roots to eat along with the grain they are provided.
The feed we purchase is non-medicated, 100% soy-free and corn-free, GMO-FREE, organically-grown.
We raise the ‘standard’ Cornish Rock Giants however feed them a ‘cooler’ ration, which means they grow slower and have fewer health issues than in typical operations.
Buying a whole chicken and using it in a variety of ways can be one of the most economical ways to eat healthy meat. A 3kg bird can provide up to 4-5 meals: it should feed around 3-4 adults with leftovers for salad or sandwiches plus a nice carcass for making soup.

“Hi Brenda! – Just wanted to let you know we ate the chicken breasts we got from you on Friday. They were amazing. I stuffed them with pesto and cream cheese. Kind of sloppy (cooks fault) but OMG!! They were delicious. They were much bigger than I expected too…probably could have shared two amongst the four of us. Oh well…the leftovers were great for lunch next day. Can’t wait for the next chicken feast!” – Angie Dedrick
