DATE CORRECTION FOR THIRD AND FINAL BATCH OF BROILERS FOR THE SEASON

After starting the spring and summer season for our pastured poultry, we discovered a slight error in our scheduling. We had posted the processing dates for the third batch July 24 and July 31.

The corrected dates are as follows: July 31 and August 7.

We encourage you take advantage of these birds that are raised without any of the chemicals, growth hormones and other stimulants that are commonly used in the commercial poultry industry. And, on the flip side, it is not only what they aren’t being fed, it is equally important what they are being fed as part of their diet.

The chicks you see above are about three weeks old and will be going on the grass next week. It’s amazing, but the instant these birds are put to pasture they will start pecking grass immediately! The fact that these chicks have access to grass produces a different finished product, one of INCREDIBLE FLAVOR AND SUPERB QUALITY. Those of you who have been buying our chickens already know exactly what I’m speaking of, and those of you who have not tried them yet will be pleasantly surprised with the very first bite.

Also, don’t forget we are planning to have plenty of turkeys available for the fall holiday season. That schedule, along with the price list, will be posted shortly.

We want to bring to your attention, also, the fact that we will not be doing the fourth batch of chickens we had planned for this season and had posted on our web site.

Thank you, and we hope to see many of you here on the farm as we go through the summer and the fall.
