Fresh Chickens Available Now--Grass fed goodness at Inverbrook
Fresh whole chickens are available for purchase at Inverbrook today (thursday) through Friday evening. After Friday they will be frozen and availble upon request. They will be located in the refrigerator in the distribution shed (click here for directions and/or contact us for more info). You can simply serve yourself and put payment in envelope also in refrigerator. Chickens are priced as marked--$3.80 a pound.
The chickens are raised on pasture and fed an organic grain based ration (the organic feed is why they are so expensive). If any of you have read Michael Pollan's Omnivore's Dilemna, you are familiar with Joel Salatin of Polyface Farm and his pasture based animal husbandry. Our methods are very similar. For more information on the virtues of grass fed meats and animal productions check out the Eat Wild website.
Along with chicken, you can also find Highland Farm Sheep products and our pastured eggs. Then in early July (just in time for the 4th) I will make delicious Buck Run frozen angusburger available. Lots of grass fed goodness!
