Chicken

Many of our customers have commented that our chicken is the best they have ever had because of the flavor.  We use slow growing Freedom Ranger chickens (derived from American and European heritage breeds). These active, robust chickens love foraging on our chemical free pastures and are supplemented with the best Non-GMO/organic, non-soy feed available. They produce tender, succulent meat that scientific research has shown is higher in the much sought after omega 3s, increased vitamins and antioxidants compared to fast growing breeds from conventional organic chicken houses and some family farms (see www.apppa.org/nutrition for more info).  We truly believe it is not possible to find a better raised or better tasting chicken.

Eggs

Our Central Alabama hens have more than 100 acres of organically managed/chemical free pasture and woods to forage on from dawn to dusk. Because of being pasture raised, our beautiful hens lay delicious eggs that have rich dark orange yokes that scientific research has shown is higher in the much sought after Omega 3s, increased vitamins and antioxidants compared to conventional organic chicken houses (see www.apppa.org/nutrition for more info). We supplement our hens’ forage with the highest quality non-GMO/organic, soy-free feed available. We want the highest quality pasture and feed that produces the highest quality eggs possible for both our family and yours. .

Chestnut Pricing   

$6.00 per pound

U-Pick Chestnuts: We offer u-pick chestnuts on select days during the harvest season. Check out our Facebook page for dates and details. Also give us a call before you come so we can confirm availability and provide driving directions.

Chestnut Shipping: We ship up to 10 pounds of chestnuts anywhere in the United States for only $5.50 (4 lb minimum order) via USPS.  Note: For orders over 10 pounds, please e-mail us for a shipping cost estimate.
Note: we usually only ship on Monday or Tuesday to ensure you receive the freshest product.

 

Information about our chestnuts: Our fresh in-shell chestnuts are taken directly from the burr off the tree or picked up the same day they drop.  They are not left to dry out and mold under the tree or stacked in harvesting crates outside.  Next, each chestnut is inspected and cleansed/blanched in 120 degree F. water for 20 minutes as an industry standard, this process may cause a slight darkening of the chestnut. Note: if you prefer to have chestnuts that are not cleansed/blanched please contact us by Aug or early Sept so we can discuss this alternative.  Some producers store chestnuts in water or flash freeze them but we believe this can alter the delicious taste.  Finally, the chestnuts are re-inspected, packaged and refrigerated at approx. 32 degrees F. in a commercial cooler with high humidity.  Our attention to detail assures your chestnuts are the highest possible quality.

 

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.
