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.
We are harvesting one more batch of local,farm raised broiler chickens! We can’t do it again until June,so this is a great chance to stock up your supply. These plump beauties weigh about 5.5 lbs,and will be avaliable for pick up starting Fri,Jan 16 at 9am. You can place an order here on the website,just go to the “chicken cart” box on the upper left,and scroll down to the “Jan 21rst batch”. Let’s pretend it’s January 21,as we’re still working the bugs out of our schedule and ordering system. Please feel free to email us at email@example.com,or call 541 348 2010 with orders and inquiries.
We have some beautiful fresh birds avaliable starting Wednesday,Dec 31 from 9am on. These chickens are in the 5lb range,plump and tasty! Please call 541 348 2010, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve yours. As an added convenience,all our birds will now be sold “freezer or table ready”. We are processing on Mondays,and holding the fresh birds in our walk-in cooler until pick up. No more re-arranging the entire fridge,or pouring ice on your chicken while you wait the requisite 24-48 hours for maximum tenderness.
