Hello folks, the processing schedule for this past weekend of May 25, 2014, will be changed to June 1, because of equipment problems.

The next processing dates of June 22 and June 29 will remain the same as scheduled.

The third batch which had been scheduled for processing on July 20 and July 27, will be changed to July 27 and August 3.

We hope these changes will not be of any inconvenience, and we do look forward to seeing you here on the farm.

Hello folks, we are, once again, starting a brand new season for the pastured poultry. We are planning to do three batches this season. Depending on the demand, we could possibly do as many as four.

We are confident you will find our pastured poultry to be second to none in quality and flavor and very reasonably priced.

We are listing the processing dates for the three batches planned for this growing season:

Batch # 1: May 18 and May 25

Batch # 2: June 22 and June 29

Batch # 3: July 20 and July 27

Thank you again for your past patronage, and we anticipate seeing you again during the upcoming season.

Due to problems with the hatchery we ordered our chicks from, we are being forced to forego our second batch of chickens. As a result we will only be doing the two processing dates of August 25 and September 1. We deeply regret this unfortunate situation, but encourage all who want fresh chickens to stock up on the two processing dates.

We also want to let everyone know we have plenty of beef available for all those interested in buying grass fed beef. We are planning on taking some to the processors very shortly. If you have any interest in a quarter of half of a beef, please let us know as soon as possible.

Thank you for your continued support and patronage.

Due to problems with the hatchery we order our chicks from, we are being forced to cancel the second batch of chickens we had planned for the end of September. We encourage everyone who desires fresh chickens to take advantage of the two dates of August 25 and September 1. We deeply regret this situation, but we concluded that the delay would make us later in the fall than we need to be. Our feed mill business has continued to grow and the business begins to pick up greatly in September and even more so in october. Tending to the chickens and processing them after this date becomes quite a difficulty.

We also to inform everyone that we have ample grass fed beef available and plan to take some to the slaughter within the next couple of weeks.

Thank you for your continued patronage and support,

Hello folks,

Even though it’s mighty late in the season to be starting the chicken season, we are finally getting up and running. Please make a note of the following dates for processing as our season will be unusually short this year.

Our first batch will have two processing dates: August 25 and September 1.

The dates for processing the second batch will be September 22 and September 29.

Hopefully you will make your plans to come to the farm on these days and stock up for the coming year.

Thank you for your interest and patronage.

Hello everyone! All of you who have been checking our web site for information on this year’s chicken processing have probably been wondering why we are so late in getting stated this year. The truth is we have been trying to move last year’s stock before starting the new crop.

We still have a couple of freezers full and we have marked down all current stock from $2.59 per pound down to $2.29!

We need to move most of the current stock within the next 30 days to 60 days to give us adequate time to raise the new crop.

Please feel free to call us at 662-369-4151 or 662-369-6062 or come by the farm.

We hope to get started shortly with the new chicks. If you are interested in fresh chickens, please contact us and place your orders so we will have an idea how many we should order.

Thank you for your continued interest and support.

Thank you, and I hope we’ll see you here on the farm in a couple of weeks.

As a result of a slow start, we will be forced to postpone the processing dates for our last batch of chickens one week. Instead of processing on August 19 and August 26, we will be processing on August 29 and September 2.

We hope this will not be too great an inconvenience for some of you as many of you were planning to stock up for the winter on the last batch.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation in this change of schedule.

We will be winding down the 2012 growing season for our range fed chickens the last two weekends of August. Please note the dates as this will be your last chance of the season to buy fresh chicken as well as fresh chicken gizzards, livers and feet. This batch, as the previous batches, will be divided into two weekends. If you desire the smaller chickens, you will want the earlier date, and if you desire larger ones you will want the latter one.

The dates for the third and final batch are:

AUGUST 19

AUGUST 26

We have plenty of chickens available and we are hoping to see you soon.

If you are among the growing number of Americans who are concerned about the quality and the source of their food, we encourage to make Cackleberry Farms your choice for locally grown naturally raised chickens, eggs and beef.

Our contact phone numbers are: 662-369-4151 or 662-369-6062.

Remember, eat well, live long!

Hello folks, we are once again making plans for the new growing season. Even though we are starting a little late this year, the current batch of chicks is doing great and will be going to pasture this coming week. At this point we are not sure exactly how many batches we will raise this season, but we are planning to do as many batches as it takes to fill all orders and fill our freezers for the winter season.

We have set the processing dates for the first two batches and will be posting the dates for the rest of the batches a little later in the season. As many of you remember, there will be two processing dates for each batch. And for you who prefer smaller chickens, the first processing date of each bath is always best. If you prefer the larger ones, the second processing date is always best.

FIRST BATCH: June 10, 2012 and June 17, 2012

SECOND BATCH: July 15, 2012 and July 22, 2012

We thank you for your continued patronage and we look forward to seeing many of you during the summer months. We congratulate all of you for choosing Cackleberry Farms for your source of all-natural chickens, eggs and beef. More and more people are choosing to know the source of their food and how it was raised. And for giving us your vote of confidence, again, we thank you.

Steve and Margie Schrock
