Pastured Chicken Reservation

6.00

July and August are sold out!! September and October orders are still open, but not for long. If there is enough interest we can have a bonus batch available between September and October.

Chickens cost $6/pound and come as whole birds. Giblets, hearts, livers, feet, and all those other underappreciated parts are available upon request.

Your deposit is deducted from the final cost when you pick up your order.

We currently have pick up sites at the farm in Millis, at Arcadia Farm in Holliston, and White Barn Farm in Wrentham. We contact all the folks who have placed an order a week before we process the birds - this way there is time to make arrangements for pick-up. If you can’t pick up your bird within the 3 day window after harvest, we will have the birds in the freezer and waiting for your pick up!

Our chickens are kept on pasture their whole life - sunshine, a diet of foraging grass, insects, and seeds, along with locally grown and milled Non-GMO grain from Clover Hill Farm in Hardwick MA, makes for a happy bird and a very delicious chicken. Because we only raise our meat when there is green grass,  we like to have folks reserve a bird ahead of time to make sure we have enough.

Pasture raising chickens is a critical part of our holistic farming practice. These birds follow our sheep and goats in a rotational grazing system, cleaning up behind them and ensuring a beautiful lush field for healthy, happy animals, a plethora of pollinators, and excellent water retention. The drought of 2016 hit New England hard. While we lost a lot of vegetables due to lack of water, our pasture still managed to support our sheep - all thanks to the work of the chickens and rotational grazing to develop a diverse and resilient community of grasses and forage plants. 

Pastured poultry isn't just good for the land - it is great for you and the farmer. The complexity of flavor in a pastured bird comes from its diverse diet and the daily exercise it takes to catch all of those bugs and scratch all those seeds. We don't have to truck in feed for our birds - considerably lowering the carbon footprint of our birds and keeping them from becoming fatty and bland tasting white meat.

We love our birds and think you will too.

**We do everything we can to ensure the safety and health of our birds but nature is unpredictable and we cannot always keep the fox from the coop or a chicken from catching a cold (they do get colds!). Please understand that this is an unavoidable part of raising healthy, happy, delicious poultry outdoors and free-roaming. Reservations are non-refundable.**
