|Organic Pasture Raised
Truly Free Ranging
Due to popular demand, (by our customers and our cows;
chickens are part of our organic fly control program) we will be
raising on pasture again this year, Meat Chickens!
And this year they are still SOY FREE.
Instead of Soy, they get their protein from
Flax, Sunflower, Field Peas and Alfalfa Meal
Chickens can be halved, quartered or otherwise cut up for you, at an additional
cost, but must be arranged with us before slaughter day.
Organ meats will be available separately by request.
Chickens can be picked up fresh at the farm, by reservation,
on Friday and Saturday each week,
or at the Brighton Market.
If you do not have a reservation, call us
to see if any are not reserved that you may pick up.
The cost of UN-reserved birds is $5.50 a pound.
on farm discount applies as always
Chickens not sold will go into the freezer Sunday night
and will be available for sale as frozen chickens.
Reserved chickens can be frozen for you also if you wish.
Chickens sell "like hotcakes" so reserve yours promptly!
Reservations are not absolutely necessary, but guarantee you get yours.
Please email me or use the contact us form or telephone me.
|It used to be the only way we got it but now people are afraid of a whole chicken after
becoming accustomed to getting select parts from the store and restaurants.
You can cut yours up and repackage it the way you want it, or roast it whole and turn it into
several other dishes or eat it roasted. A roast chicken is so good, one of the ultimate
comfort foods. Add a little mac & cheese and a side of veggies...YUM. Below is a link to a
Better Homes & Gardens Roasting Guide for all sorts of foods, including your whole
chicken. You can Yahoo search "how to cook a whole chicken" and get tons of ideas,
including ideas to divide up your cooked chicken to make and freeze several interesting
meals for future thaw and bake dishes among other things. Think chicken salad, chicken
and dumplings, chicken cacciatore, chicken divan, chickens fajitas, chicken tortilla soup,
old fashioned chicken noodle soup, home made chicken stock, fried chicken, etc....
|Like chicken wings? We love 'em. Purchase 3 whole chickens, cut off the wings, cut off the
tips of these wings (at the last joint) and discard or save for stock, cut the remaining wing at the
joint and you now have a dozen wings the way you are paying too much to get them from the
pizza shop or wherever. To fry them, add oil or lard (I make ours from our own pasture raised
pork fat) or shortening to a skillet to make it only half as deep as these wings, heat your oil to
375 degrees, fry on one side until golden on bottom, turn over and fry the other side the same.
Melt some butter, add as much red hot sauce and toss the wings in it. Easy!
And where else will you get organic truly free range chicken wings but your own kitchen?
|Don't know how to cut up a whole chicken?
Whole uncut chickens stay freshest and are your best value.

HOW TO CUT UP A WHOLE CHICKEN
to point of processing
SOY FREE AND
TRULY FREE RANGE
|Beginning last year, my poultry is certified organic while they are still walking
around but I will not be assuming the additional burden and expense of having my
on farm processing of poultry certified. I will be doing absolutely nothing different
than I have ever done with raising, feeding, handling and processing my poultry
and anyone is welcome to come inspect my farm, my animals and my processing as
always with an appointment. I am happy to answer any question you have and still
believe every farm should be equally as transparent since we are, after all,
producing food for people! And that's why this is prominently posted at the start of
this page and not hidden in small print at the bottom or omitted altogether.
|Applied for organic inspection of
processing this year. Stay tuned as I
may be putting those certified organic
stickers back on my packaged chicken
later this year after my inspection!
