EDITED:-----NOTE: These will not be ready for pickup until LATE JULY. ------
Due to increased demand this spring, we have chickens started earlier than planned so that we can hopefully meet YOUR NEEDS! All of our chickens for our June processing have been spoken for. Any pre-orders places are now for chickens that should be ready to deliver LATE JULY. Our goal is to provide chickens weighing from 3.5 pounds to 4.7 pounds.
There is a limited amount of these pre-orders, and depending on demand and timing of your order, there is a chance we won't have enough available to fill ALL of the orders. But have no fear, we have more chicks ordered! We will plan to fill pre-orders in order of placement. In the case that we do not have enough for your order, we will let you know right away and give you a timeline of when we believe your order can be fulfilled.
If demand is higher than we anticipated, we are still able to adjust the amount of chickens we raise this year. We are doing all we can to ensure that we can provide your family with the nutrient dense proteins that you need!
THE BEST VALUE! These Whole Chicken Bundles are our MOST cost-effective option for you to bring home wholesome and healthy Pastured Chickens to your dinner table!
Nothing warms the heart like a table full of healthy comfort foods surrounded by family. Let the center of that meal be a healthy, pastured rotisserie-style chicken fresh out of the oven or a big pot of steaming homemade chicken noodle soup. Our whole chickens are perfect for roasting in the oven or crock pot. We even recommend roasting more than one at a time, then freezing the extra meat and using all of the left overs for savory and nourishing bone broth!
Some additional recipes for all that delicious extra meat:
Chicken Bacon Ranch Skillet
Tomato Basil Chicken
Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
Pastured Chicken Bone Broth:
Pastured Chicken Bone Broth is one of the most nourishing things you can feed your body! It contains minerals of bone, cartilage, and marrow. Additionally, it contains the minerals of vegetables as electrolytes, which are easily assimilated. When there is acidic wine or vinegar added, it helps to draw out these minerals, specifically calcium, magnesium and potassium.
The most economical (and logical) way to make mineral- and nutrient-rich Pastured Chicken Bone broth is to use the leftovers from the entire animal! Our whole chickens don't come with their feet still attached, so adding our Pastured Chicken Feet to your order to round out your Bone Broth recipe is a great way to gain even more minerals, nutrients and collagen!
Here's the recipe: Pastured Chicken Bone Broth.
