A dozen eggs from our pasture-raised hens is $6.
Stewing Chicken option
These delicious stewing chickens make incredibly rich and golden broth, with exceptionally nutritious meat. The chicken has been processed, dressed and frozen.
Stewing chicken needs to be cooked differently than grocery store chicken (commercial birds are 8 weeks old, fed only grain; our birds are a year or two old and have been eating a nutrient-rich diet on pasture). Slow cook / simmer these chickens for several hours (the longer the better, even overnight!) until the meat falls off the bone; the golden, flavorful broth is enriched by the long cooking of the whole bird including the bones.
Chickens are $10 each, average 2.5- 3.5 lb.
Pork Share option
We have delicious pasture-raised pork available in a package of mixed cuts (frozen). The pigs are raised in the shade of our apple trees and their varied diet and healthy outdoor living result in superb quality meat, our members rave about it.
