We raise heritage breeds on a very large, all-but organic (everything but the label) pasture, supplemented with organic (labeled organic) feeds. Because we have to purchase birds and feed well in advance, we request that you pre-order meat (and provide a 50% deposit). Because we have a big family, we know it can be a sacrifice to buy food like we raise on our farm. We really aren't making money, farm economics being what they are - but WE ARE COMMITTED to making high quality meats as affordable as possible.
Feed costs are projected to increase 30-40%. We already know that the cost of purchasing birds and processing are nearly double. We are making great effort to maximize use of the pasture, and are adapting our rotations accordingly, as well as attempting to supplement protein needs with sprouted fodder to reduce need for grains. And we plan to do the processing ourselves. If the prices listed mean that we are selling at a loss, we will raise the price to cost.
These eggs come from chickens with a large open yard (it is winter...), and are not cleaned. They have a natural anti-bacterial coating that maintains freshness, and is removed with washing. Not washing also allows us to not have the expense of maintaining a licensed egg processing facility and provide you with the freshest eggs! (Price per doz)$5.00
Duck eggs are 50% larger than chicken eggs, and provide high quality protein, lecithin and choline (which are good for your brain), anti-oxidants, 3 times the B12, and twice the iron and vitamin D. Duck eggs can sometimes be tolerated by those with dietary sensitivities to chicken eggs. (Price per doz)$11.00
Chicken hearts and livers are a family favorite, served with bacon and onions!! They can also be fried or made into pate. Lower in fat and carbohydrates than meat, chicken innards are high in vitamins (particularly A and the B’s) and minerals (especially iron and selenium). And they also make good fish-bait. (Frozen together from our 2021 harvest - Price per pound)$8.00
The meat from a chicken's neckbones is tender and can be used in a soup, or to make a rich chicken salad. Either way, the bones make excellent broth, like chicken feet. (Frozen from our 2021 harvest - Price per pound)$4.00
Chicken feet are used to make healthy chicken broth. They are an excellent source of protein, Vitamin A, folate, and anti-inflammatory omega fatty acids. For a richer, fancier broth, add carrots, onion, and celery to the bones prior to boiling. (Frozen from our 2021 harvest - Price per pound)$7.00
Due to the expected cost increases, we are not selling chickens in advance this year. Rather, we are experimenting with tractor and open pasture systems and learning to breed our own so that we may be truly self-sustaining and hopefully reduce costs as well. Should we have enough at a reasonable price, we will offer them for sale later.

Rabbit is richer and gamier in flavor than chicken. It is lean, almost cholesterol free, and higher in protein, B12, vitamin E, and minerals than many cuts of beef while lower in sodium. Because rabbit is so lean, it requires care in cooking (like pork). (Price per lb)$10.00
