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:

BATCH NUMBER ONE:

Processing # one: July 26, 2015

Processing # two: August 2, 2015

BATCH NUMBER TWO:

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!

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,

Steve and Margie Schrock
