Chicken Available

We got our chickens processed yesterday and they are now available for sale. They are priced at $2.50 per pound. The birds average 4-5 pounds each. This pricing is competitive with what was being charged at the Romney Farmer's Market this past summer. If you've consumed pasture raised poultry before, you already know the difference. But if you have not, I'll mention a few points. These birds have little fat, its just pure clean protein.

They always had plenty of fresh grass to eat and a constant supply of clean water. Grass and other leafy greens contain a high level of Omega 3 fatty acids - the healthy kind, so these birds are much healthier than ones grown in feed lots or crowded cages like in commercial facilities. Grocery store chicken has been packed in salt water and MSG so it can tenderize while its being transported to the store. Our chicken has no additives or preservatives and will not taste salty like commercially raised and processed chicken. The meat tastes clean and fresh. There were no antibiotics or other harmful additives in our feed. The feed is just ground grain which we purchase at French's Mill in Augusta, WV. Some people always ask about processing. Our birds were processed at an Amish on farm commercial processing facility near Waynesboro, PA, called Berry Blossom Farm. If you are interested in purchasing some chicken, just contact us. They will go fast. Thank you.
