Meat Birds are primarily done for personal use or on demand. We have had many requests for pasture raised chickens in recent days. Our current plan is to raise meat chickens in September 2020. The chickens would be processed after 8 weeks and ready for pick up from the farm in early November. This schedule may be moved up based on availability of chicks. We have found the birds are healthier when raised in cooler temperatures. Our birds are raised naturally with no added growth hormones or antibiotics. The whole chickens are expected to cost about $3/lb depending on feed prices. Contact us if you'd like us to raise a few or many for your family. They are healthy and delicious!
Our egg layers are happy hens! They have the run of the pastures. Eggs from chickens raised on pasture are healthier than eggs from confined chickens. Our girls have an easy life and we are rewarded with lucious, healthy eggs. A dozen eggs runs $5 and usually includes brown, white, green/blue, and sometimes pink eggs.
The last group we raised for 83 days and the finished weights ranged from 6 to 11 pounds. Delicious and healthy! We are expecting to raise a batch of meat birds in the Fall of 2020. Contact us if you are interested and we can grow some out for your family.
