Pasture-raised Poultry

Chickens on pasture at Smith Farm McAlisterville
Broiler chickens resting in pasture

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 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.  If adding these back to our offerings in the future is something your would like to see happen, please inform us.

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 an additional charge.  You will find all of these options on the order page.

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.
