The last of the chickens!

We just processed the last batch of pastured chickens here at Capon Crossing Farm, so what we currently have in stock will be it until next Spring.
They are already selling like hotcakes, so make sure you stop by soon to pick up yours. $3.99/lb, an unbeatable price for pastured heritage breed chicken!

Our whole chickens can provide several meals to a family, especially if you make chicken stock, which is easy!

Chicken Stock:
Place chicken carcass in a pot, cover with water, bring to boil, then let simmer 4-24 hours (the longer, the better).
OR, place carcass in crockpot, cover with water, and cook on low 4-24 hours.

Some optional tips:
-Add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
-Flavor with salt and pepper, or other mild spices
-Add garlic cloves, onions, and/or fresh herbs
-Drink broth plain (especially if you are fighting a cold!), or add to any soup or stew.

Enjoy!
