UPDATE: 9/30 3:30 pm
Alert! The butcher had a glitch with equipment today so we will NOT have fresh chicken at the farm this evening after all! We will still have frozen chickens, so come by if you would like to purchase frozen chicken.
Thank you! Sorry for the last-minute change!
This Wednesday marks the last day of grazing for our pastured-chickens, who have been in rotation on the fields for 6 weeks. Whether you want to try one bird, or stock your freezer with 10, you can join us on Friday evening, September 30 between 5 and 7 pm to pick up your delicious chicken!
Chickens were raised on non-GMO feed* and lots of pasture plants and insects. The Cornish Cross chicks have been outdoors from week 2, and were slaughtered at Maple Wind Farm in Richmond, VT, which offers custom slaughter for poultry producers from around Vermont. After processing, the chickens are air-chilled, vacuum sealed and frozen for you. The hearts, livers and necks are not included, but can be purchased in bulk separately.
Chickens are $4.85/pound if purchasing 1-9 birds and $4.60/pound for 10 or more. \*The main ingredients in the chicken feed are non-GMO cornmeal, non-GMO soybean meal and organic wheat middlings. Chickens will also enjoy leftover barley mash from a nearby start-up brewery! If you're interested in chickens raised on certified organic grain, let us know! We might raise the next batch on certified organic grain.
