ALSO, we just processed our FIRST batch of Freedom Ranger broilers! We’re very excited to provide delicious, pasture-raised poultry to our customers. These birds foraged for 13 weeks, which allowed them to develop a more complex range of flavors. These are not your typical grocery-store birds!
Their weight averaged between 2 and 4 lbs each; $3.99/lb. We have a limited supply for now, but will have more available in a few weeks. Hurry in to get yours! (Or, make a reservation for our next round at the end of June.)

We’re also stocked with some delicious ground pork from our neighbors at River Meadow Farm, run by Capon Springs and Farms.

We’ve got a lot happening! Stop by for a concert or to just visit the market. We’d love to see you!

Our first batch of broiler chicks have arrived! We’ll be offering Freedom Rangers (a breed especially suited to thriving¬†on pasture) in June of this year. Pastured-raised chicken IS a bit different than what you’ll find at the grocery store:

-Pasture-raised birds take longer to reach their market weight, which means they have more time to develop amino acids and antioxidant nutrients, including omega-3 fatty acids, CLA, “conjugated linolaic acids”, and high ratios of Vitamin E. This also means the ratio of dark meat to white meat may be higher in pasture-raised poultry, but it makes it tastier!
-They will be raised in moveable pens so that they are protected from the elements and multitude of predators that prowl our farm, but will be moved everyday so that they always have access to fresh grass and insects.
-We’ll be processing on site, so we’ll be offering mostly whole birds, and some half birds, rather than pieces. There are SO MANY options for how to prepare whole birds, however, and we’ll be posting some of our favorites leading up to when we’ll have poultry available.

Would you like to put our name down for a pasture raised chicken? Fill out the form below, and we’ll contact you at the time of availability. We’ll have chicken available at different times between June and October, and will provide more opportunities for you to reserve a bird before each processing time.
