We have humanely processed our own chickens for the past year. During this time we have had several people sample our chickens. They said it was the best chicken they ever had because of the flavor and asked us to start selling them! We use slow growing Freedom Ranger chickens (derived from American and European heritage breeds). These active, robust chickens love foraging on our pastures and are supplemented with the best certified organic, whole grain, non-soy feed available. They produce tender, succulent meat with more yellow omega 3 fat and less saturated fat than fast growing breeds (found in commercial chicken houses and some family farms). We truly believe it is not possible to find a better raised or better tasting chicken.
|Whole Chicken||$6.25 per lb (avg 4 lbs)|
|Breasts (boneless/skinless)||$16.50 (2/pk, avg 1lb/pk)|
|Legs & Thighs||$9.50 (2/pk, avg 1.75lb/pk)|

Our hens have more than 100 acres of pasture and woods to forage on from dawn to dusk. Our beautiful hens lay delicious dark brown, light brown and blue-green eggs that come from Barred Rock, Rhode Island Reds, Ameraucanas, and more.
The hens supplement their forage with the highest quality certified organic, soy-free, non-GMO feed available. Our feed comes from New Country Organics http://www.newcountryorganics.com You can actually tell what everything is in the feed when it runs through your hands. This is not the case with the vast majority of more inferior feeds. We want the highest quality feed that produces the highest quality eggs possible for both our family and yours.

Information about our chestnuts: Our fresh in-shell chestnuts are refrigerated immediately upon harvest. They are not left to dry out and mold under the tree or stacked in harvesting crates outside. Our attention to detail assures the highest possible quality of our chestnuts.
Chestnut Storage Tips: Chestnuts’ high moisture and starch content, makes them a perishable food. They must be kept refrigerated and not allowed to dry out. At 32 degrees F., chestnuts will store for many months. For best results, keep fresh chestnuts refrigerated in a re-sealable plastic bag/net. Punch a few holes in the bag, allowing the nuts to ‘breathe’. Place the bag in your refrigerator drawer, flipping it over occasionally. Acceptable mold, that may happen, will look like black spots on the brown shell. The mold can be rinsed or wiped off, as long as the inner nut kernel remains fresh and yellow. The taste of raw fresh uncooked chestnuts, without the outer soft shell and inner pellicle (a paper thin covering right next to the yellow kernel, should have the consistency of an uncooked carrot or potato. When cooked, the kernel will soften. If the chestnut is undercooked, the outside of the chestnut will be soft and the inside will be hard. If overcooked, the chestnut will dry out and harden.
