When you’re growing food or raising it, there is always a time period that our supplies get low or we may even sell out. Yes I said it..sold out! WHY?
Well there are many reasons, but I’m going to give you the top two for us.
As a small farm, we only grow what’s in season. This means that as the seasons change, our vegetables will too.
With our organic chickens, time is of the essence! We don’t rush our birds and they aren’t force fed. They eat what they want, when they want. So they simply take time to grow. We boost our numbers in the Spring and Summer to account for Farmers Markets and new customers, but once they’re sold out we have to wait for the next batch to grow.
The good news is that if you purchase from us, you know that you’re getting the very best that we have to offer. Your organic produce has been cared for without the use of chemicals and your chickens have enjoyed their life.
So right now as the seasons change over and the birds are growing, we ask that you’re patient with us and any other farmers you support. We are working hard to make sure you have all that we can offer you for the next season.
Please know that although we may not have very much organic produce right now, we do have herbs like basil in abundance, plus we’re making pesto, salsa, and canning pear jams to extend the tastes of Spring and Summer along with our organic bone broth kits. Find all of these on our Shop Page.
We appreciate all of you and we thank you in advance!
Who doesn’t love chicken?!?! We don’t know of anyone! Roasted, fried, grilled, pan seared, chicken is excellent whatever way you prepare it. We happen to think our chicken is exceptionally good and we hope you do too.
Our meatbirds are sold direct to our customers and we harvest to order so our meat is always fresh. We hope you try some soon!
Contact us for more information.
It’s that time of year when everyone cooks out. Yes it’s really HOT, but who wants to pass up BBQ chicken, potato salad, and a cool glass of homemade lemonade? Not us!! So how about grabbing some fresh organic chicken, slicing it down the middle, and throwing it on the grill with your favorite sauce? Mouth watering?!? Ours too!
Our chicken grills up tender and delicious! We’ve even got you covered on the lemonade. What a wonderful way to feed your family in a healthy and sustainable manner, while enjoying some comfort food!
Contact us today to reserve your whole bird. We’ll be waiting for you!
As of June 30, 2018, we will be streamlining our prices across the board. Some of you may have noticed this change in our pricing structure already. We initially thought that pricing our birds at a flat rate would be a better option, but with the rising cost of organic feed, we are finding the expense is too great. We believe this will be beneficial to everyone going forward. Our new pricing is as follows:
Whole Organic Pastured Chickens: $6/lb
Small/Medium Eggs: $4/Dozen
Large Eggs: $5/Dozen
Jumbo Eggs: $6/Dozen
18 Count Eggs: $7
30 Count Mixed Flat: $15
Chicken Livers: $5/lb
Chicken Feet: $7/lb
Chicken Gizzards and Hearts: $5/lb
Due to this pricing structure we can no longer offer our whole chicken through The Market at Dothan. All whole chicken sales will be direct only.
Please call, message through our Facebook page, or email your order through our contact page.
Announcements will be made for Harvest Days and our birds can be reserved in advance.
You can continue to place orders for all our other products through our shop page:
Thank you for the support your families have given ours. We appreciate every single order, big or small. We are proud that we are able to keep our standards high and provide clean quality food for everyone and we hope to continue to do so for a long time to come.
Did you know that chickens like to eat all sorts of things? Not only do they enjoy foraging for bugs, grubs, and garden goodies, but they also love berries, greens, and even sprouted grains.
With the arrival of warmer weather our gardens are in full swing and we have been able to put together some great treats for our birds. As usual they get their daily rations of feed, but right now our mulberry tree is in full production mode so they are enjoying fresh berries as they fall from the tree. Plus with the change over from Winter to Spring/Summer vegetables they are enjoying collards, mustards, and kale.
Last year we began toying with the idea of feeding sprouted grains to our chickens. It’s important to us that they have access to greens even when none are growing naturally during the colder months. Their feed contains organic grains such as barley, oats, and wheat, but sprouting those grains opens up all the good nutrients they would not have access to in the dry feed. It has been amazing learning how to sprout grains properly for our chickens and seeing how much they enjoy it. We like to toss it around their forage area and watch them go.
In our chicken garden we are growing clovers, dandelions, marigolds, and all sorts of things they like to eat and are good for them. We are dependent on them as a clean source of eggs and meat, so it’s important that they’re healthy and eat well. We know they appreciate it and we’re sure all of you do too!
This guy wants everyone to know that although you’re anxious to eat him, he isn’t ready quite yet. He would like to enjoy his time in the sun for just a little while longer. He is having too much fun eating, drinking, and frolicking with his friends. He has been moved to the big cage which is the last step before harvesting, so he asks that you please be patient while he fattens up and he thanks you in advance!
Spring Harvest is scheduled for May 5th and 6th. If you haven’t reserved your birds, don’t worry there’s always next time. Contact us now or visit our shop page to order in advance. Some birds will also be made available on The Market at Dothan.
