meet your meat

Do you know where your meat comes from? We would like to welcome you out to the farm for a special Pastured Poultry Field Day on Saturday, June 20th. Fun for the whole family, everyone is welcome. Tour begins at 2:30PM. CCF05162015_0002 copyCome spend the afternoon at the farm with us and see how our chickens are raised. During our Pastured Poultry Field Day, we’ll visit with newly hatched chicks in the brooder. Then we’ll head back to the orchard and visit with the chickens in rotation on pasture in chicken tractors. The tour will also include a discussion on mixing and grinding our own blend of certified organic and transitional whole grain feed rations, the economics of raising chickens/how we set our price, and sharing details on humane slaughter. Although we will have the equipment set up and be discussing slaughter methods, we will not be demonstrating a slaughter on Saturday. (We are looking for help on butcher days, if you are interested in coming to help out, please let us know.)

The general state of meat production in this country is grim – for the animals, the farmers and the environment. But as meat eaters, we can make choices as to where we source our meat. We’re excited about raising happy, healthy animals for our community in a way that benefits the land. Come visit the birds, ask us questions. Food tastes better when you know where it comes from. We look forward to sharing our small pastured poultry operation with you. Hope to see you on the tour.
