Plump,beautiful fresh chickens available for pick up this Wednesday between 9am and 12 pm. Orders can be placed by visiting our store over to your left.
We have some of our largest birds so far this season avaliable for pick up Saturday from 9am until 12 pm. If you prefer chickens in the 5 lb range these are your birds!
We’re excited to be harvesting our first batch of pasture raised chickens this year. Chicken pick ups will be Wednesdays from 9am until noon,although if you absolutely can’t make it mid-week we could possibly arrange an alternate time.
Birds are in the 4-4.5 lb range,and will be freezer or table ready at time of pick up,having been held at 34′ for nearly 48 hours since proccessing. This allows the muscle fibers to relax,so your chicken is tender and succulent.
We think this will be a lot easier for our customers than pouring ice on a cooler full of birds,or clearing out the fridge to hold your chickens after bringing them home.
Hopefully,the smaller average size will allow for many of us to do less cutting birds into halves or quarters before storage. Producing chickens the size of small turkeys was fun,but growing them a bit smaller represents a signifigant welfare advantage,as such large birds are more difficult to handle and don’t fit as easily into the harvesting cones.
Orders may be placed via the website,if you have any questions please call us at 541 348 2010.
