The farmstead is pleased to once again be raising meat chickens. This year we are offering both, Cornish Cross and Freedom rangers.
Cornish cross are a heavy bird with succulent white meat. The Cornish is a mixed breed of a White Cornish rooster and a Plymouth White Rock hen. Because Cornish’s grow quickly they stay moist and tender.
For those looking for a more heritage-type meat bird, we are also offering the Freedom Ranger. Freedom Rangers are a red plumage, slower growth bird. Freedom rangers are excellent foragers and do well out on pasture. Because of their foraging abilities, Freedom rangers are known for their full flavored meat. SOLD OUT

Meat chickens are sold by the pound at $4.50lb. The chickens will weigh between 3.5 & 5lb. I have found that most families prefer a 5lb chicken, so they can make more then 1 meal and then boil down the carcass to make a nutrient dense bone broth. The average family will eat two-four chickens per month.
A $5.00 deposit is required PER CHICKEN. Chickens must be picked up at the farm or during a scheduled milk delivery in CDA. Chickens will be processed in batches throughout the summer, (July, August and September.) If you have a preference on which month, please add a note to your order or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. All processed chickens come weighed and shrink wrapped. Chickens will be frozen upon pickup.
