We have humanely processed our own chickens for over a year. During this time we had several people sample our chicken. 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 Non-GMO/organic, 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.

Our hens have more than 100 acres of organically managed pasture and woods to forage on from dawn to dusk. Our beautiful hens lay delicious dark brown, light brown, white and blue-green eggs that come from Barred Rock, Rhode Island Reds, Ameraucanas, Brown Leghorns, and Novagens.
We supplement the hens’ organic forage with the highest quality non-GMO/organic, soy-free feed available. 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.
N.T. Christian Farm soaps are developed with only natural ingredients which are primarily produced in Central Alabama. Our MEGA bars are 7.5 ounces. We have many varieties of soap and can custom make your soap as well. We have rosemary, lavender, local honey/oatmeal and others available. We use only three ingredients in our soaps: high quality essential oils, coconut oil and local grass fed tallow/lard or olive oil. Essential oils are known for their enchanting aroma and many special uses, coconut oil and tallow/lard ensures the soap has a nice bubbly lather and remains firm even in the shower. Many vegetarians and vegans have written about their appreciation of the use of tallow/lard in soap as a way of honoring an animal that was humanely raised on pasture. Occasionally, we will custom make soap that uses only essential oils, coconut oil and olive oil (special pricing available for this option).
|3 or more bars or soap||$3.00 each|
|2 bars of soap||$4.00 each|
|1 bar of soap||$5.00|
