Pasture-raised Chickens

Broilers are chickens that reach maturity very quickly; from egg to table takes only 5-8 weeks, depending on the preferred size.  Our chickens are all raised with no hormones and no antibiotics.  The broilers are finished on pasture, moved every day to fresh grass.

We are finished raising pastured chickens for 2020. Follow our Facebook page for regular updates.

We are grateful to everyone who supported the addition of chicken to our pasture-raised meats in 2020.  We would love to get your feedback if you tried our chickens this year.  Please head to our Facebook page and let us know what you think.

We are pleased to be working with Reiff’s Poultry of Mifflinburg, to offer you a vacuum-packed ready to use or freeze chicken.  They can be cut to your specifications:  9 pieces (which separates the drumstick from the thigh), 7 pieces (drumstick attached to thigh), quarters, halves, or whole birds.  Hearts and livers will be available, packaged separately.  If you would like the gizzard included, there will be a 50¢ charge.  You will find all of these options on the order page.

Pastured chicken weights will be rounded down to the full pound and cost $3.75 per pound.  A 4-5 lb chicken will be $15; over 5, but under 6, will be $18.75; and so on.  To comply with all state and federal regulations, we must have your order in hand before the birds are processed.  The order page will require a deposit to enable this.

We raise very small batches of birds, which allows us to monitor the chickens closely and ensure that they are healthy.  Unfortunately, because our flocks are small, we cannot facilitate pre-orders of specific weights.
