Organic Pasture-Raised Chicken

We are no longer raising laying hens, but we still have stewing hens in the freezer from our last batch of Rhode Island Reds.  They have been fed certified organic feed their whole lives and have lived on our organic pasture since they were about 8 weeks old.  After processing, they weigh 3.5 to 5.5 lbs each.  Frozen birds are vacuum sealed in Foodsaver bags which keep them well for at least a year.  Because their meat is so tasty, Rhode Island Reds are included in Slow Food's Ark of Taste, a list of the best tasting heritage/heirloom breeds and varieties that are in danger of being lost.  Since we are not raising a meat breed, our chickens have more natural proportions than chicken you see in the store, which means a smaller breast and longer legs, resulting in a much happier, more active bird which produces leaner, more flavorful meat. These stewing hens are delicious cooked in a crockpot (see Recipe page). We now use a stunner for killing the chickens, a much more humane method than other farms are using. Contact us to purchase these stewing hens.  Starting in 2017 we will be raising broilers.

Organic Pastured Lamb and Pork

We are breeding sheep now so that we will have lambs to sell every fall.  In some years, we will buy some weaned pigs to raise for meat.  We buy them from small local family farms and raise them on our organic pastures.  Our lambs are 100% grass fed and the pigs are fed Certified Organic hog feed, plus some of our organic produce.  They get plenty of room to run around and shelter from the weather.  We have a mobile butcher come to the farm to avoid the stress of taking them to a slaughterhouse.  This means that we have to sell the meat by the half or whole carcass instead of by the piece.  You get to choose your own cutting orders and you pick up the frozen meat directly from the butcher.  We are taking reservations now for animals to be butchered in the fall.  Please contact us if you are interested.
