Hello friends, the chickens are coming along beautifully, but we have been having some problems getting everything ready for processing.  Therefore we have no choice but to postpone the processing dates one week.  Please make note of the following change of schedule:

First processing date: August 5th.

Second processing date: August 12

Remember, if you desire the smaller chickens, you definitely want to come for the first processing.

We thank you for your interest in our fresh range fed poultry, the very best you can buy!

Please consider the following phone numbers if you desire to contact us:

Store phone: 662-369-6062

My cell phone: 662-813-3049

Hope to see you on the farm.

Hello Folks, another summer has rolled around and we are making plans for our 20018 poultry processing schedule.

Right now we are planning for at least one group of poultry, and if the demand is high enough, we will be raising more. Please consider the following dates for the first group:

July 29, 2018

August 5, 2018

As always, the chickens will be some smaller on the first date for those who desire smaller ones, and those who are looking for the larger ones should plan for the latter date.

We recommend that you call before coming to pick up your chickens, because there is always a possibility of a last-minute change of schedule or other problems could arise. Our store phone number is 662-369-60602.
Thank you very much for your continued interest and patronage.

Hello folks,

We have come down to the last batch of chickens for the year of 2017! We have waited a little longer than normal, and the chickens should be somewhat larger. Please note the following dates:

SEPTEMBER 24, 2017

OCTOBER 1, 2017

These two dates represent our last poultry processing for 2017. If you desire fresh unfrozen chicken, please come by the farm on the days of processing or the next day following the processing.

Thank you for your interest in natural and whole foods. Remember, the extra effort and the possible additional costs in acquiring natural and whole foods will reward you and your family many fold as time keeps on slipping into the future. We all want to be part of that future, healthy and whole.

See you on the farm,

Steve Schrock

Hello folks, we are, once again, postponing our processing dates one week.

The processing date scheduled for July 2, 2017 will be postponed one week for July 9, 2017.

Likewise, the processing date scheduled for July 9, 2017, will be postponed for July 16, 2017.

We apologize for these changes and hope they will not create a hardship for any of valued customers.

We look forward to seeing many of you here on the farm as we move forward into the summer.

A note to all of our customers: We are planning to do a batch in the month of August or September, and possibly another batch in October. Details for the dates of these batches have not been determined yet.

Thank you,

Steve Schrock

Hello Folks,

After setting the 2017 schedule, we realized that the first batch of chicks had been slightly stunted because of getting chilled the first night after arrival. Even though the chickens are now doing well, they are clearly smaller than they should be for the scheduled processing. So we have decided to set the dates back one week for the first batch. Please note the following dates:

FIRST BATCH First processing date has been changed from May 28 to June 4, and the second processing has been rescheduled for June 11.

The SECOND BATCH has not been changed and is planned as per scheduled.

We are hoping this will not create too much confusion for those who had planned to come for the May 28 schedule.

We thank you so much for your patronage and your commitment to eating natural and healthy foods.

Hello everyone! Another year has rolled around, and we are kicking off the new season with the first poultry processing to take place on the last Sunday of this month, May 28. These will be the smaller birds for those who are looking for birds somewhere around three pounds.

The second processing is scheduled for June 4, the first Sunday of June, which will be the larger birds.

Processing dates for the second batch of chickens is scheduled for July 2 for the smaller birds, and July 9 for the larger birds.

The first two batches are the only ones that have definite dates set so far. We are planning more batches for the season, but definite dates will be set later.

We thank you so much for your interest in our range fed poultry, and we hope you will check out our supply of range fed eggs and range fed beef as well.

We look forward to seeing you on the farm.

Hello once again. Another year has rolled around, and it’s chicken-raising time again! Actually, the first batch is already on the grass and will be ready for processing on the last Sunday of June and the first Sunday of July.

This year we are holding the price for the chickens the same as last year, $2.39 if picked up before they are frozen and $2.59 packaged and frozen.

We thank you for your continued support and patronage over the years. We believe that the long-term benefits of acquiring fresh quality foods greatly outweighs the extra effort and cost involved. And it is our conviction that the best quality foods that we can acquire are, in the long haul, by far the cheapest foods we can possibly acquire. In reality, folks, eating fresh quality foods is investing in your long-term health and well-being!

We will be posting the schedule for all future batches of chickens for this season. We should be able to do this very shortly.

See you on the farm,

Steve Schrock


Hello folks! Because of a delay in the production of the current batch of chickens, we are postponing the slaughter dates by one week. Please make your plans for the following dates:



Please note that the current batch will be our final batch of the year.

Thank you for your patronage, and we anticipate seeing you soon.

Because of a large carryover from last season, we have started our pastured poultry unusually late this year.

Right now we are planning to raise at least two batches of chickens, which will translate into four processing dates. Please watch these dates closely, as there is always a possibility of an emergency or a change of plans.

Our current batch of chicks is doing very well and look like they should be ready on schedule. Please take note of the following dates:


Processing # one: July 26, 2015

Processing # two: August 2, 2015


Processing # one: August 30, 2015

Processing # two: September 6, 2015

Thank you very much for your interest in natural, quality food, and thank you for choosing the best – Cackleberry Farms!

See you this summer!
