Pre-Order chickens for 2016 NOW

January 18, 2016

The Smithshyre is changing the way we raise chickens this year, 2016. We are only going to grow chickens for those who pre-ordered them. We will have 2 harvest, not 5 as usual. A Spring and Fall harvest. Believe it or not it is time to order our chicks for 2016.

We are going to collect $10 deposits for our pasture raised chickens, in 2016.

The day old chicks will be ready in 8-9 weeks.

We are streamlining our chicken production so we can grow more produce. We hope you all will find this system just as convenient as our old harvest system. Check out all the details on our pastured poultry page.

    I just placed my order. Wish I could order more but I don’t have the storage space right now.

    I would like to help with the Harvest on July 15th. Since taking your class a year ago I haven’t completed a harvest yet and would like to have the experience so I don’t forget the skills I learned. Would this be possible? I could commit to 6 hours of volunteer time.

    Two questions about feed that I hope you will be able to help me with:
    1) Who are you purchasing your soy and corn free organic feed from? I was able to find one source in Montana but the cost to have it shipped is prohibitive, twice as much as the feed, which by the way is no more expensive than the non-organic soy/corn feed.
    2) Would you be willing to sell some of your feed to me? I have a small mixed flock of Pekin Ducks and Barred Rock Plymouth Chickens.

    Thanks for the nutritious food you provide.
    Kathy
