Why pastured chicken?
It's Healthier - Compared to conventional chickens, pasture raised chickens are significantly higher in Omega-3 and Vitamin A.
It's Leaner - Pasture raised chickens have 21% less total fat, 30% less saturated fat, and 28% less calories than conventional chickens.
Raised With Care - Our chickens are raised in small flock sizes and right on top of living pasture. They forage on various grasses, plants, and insects. They are fed supplemental grains with a high protein content. The birds are raised in low and wide, bottomless shelters and are moved to fresh pasture once or more each day.
No Chemicals - We do not use chemicals including antibiotics and hormones. This is better for us, the birds and the environment.
Local - By purchasing from local and small farmers, you keep your dollar in the local community. And by buying local, your food isn't being shipped thousands of miles which is better for our planet.
Our chicken CSA is different than most others.
By signing up for our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), you help take the guesswork out of how many chickens we need to raise. This saves us time and energy which allows us to pass the savings onto you.
We don't charge up front or per chicken - Most CSAs require a one-time upfront fee, usually $200-$400 for 10-20 birds. Although, this is a perfectly good approach, we understand that this can be a barrier for some families. To help make fresh, local chicken available to more families, you only pay when you pick up your chicken. And unlike other CSAs that charge per bird regardless of size, our CSA charges per pound so that you only pay for what you get.
We don't offer 5 month CSAs - Most chicken CSAs are usually 20 weeks, we understand that might be too long for some families or not long enough for others. It's our goal to offer a year round CSA with fresh delivery every other week. Stay as long as you want, cancel anytime.
When you sign up below, we will send you an email with your first delivery date. It is our goal to deliver fresh whole chickens every other week. The cost is just $4.00/pound. The average weight is 4 - 4.5 lbs ($16-$18 per whole chicken). The pickup times will be every other Saturday 10AM-12PM. You can cancel your subscription anytime.
Our chicken is processed at a local and licensed USDA facility under our supervision. A member of our farm staff vacuum seals each chicken on site. We are a State of Florida Licensed Limited Poultry And Egg Farm Operation.
