Broilers on Pasture
Our meat birds (broilers) went out to pasture for the first time, yesterday. Our floor-less pen seems to be working well, for now. These chickens have been in a brooder for the last 3 and a half weeks. They have about 5 weeks left to fill out. The harvest is planned for May 3rd & 4th, this is perfect timing. Our permit this year does require our costumers to come to the farm on the weekend of harvest. So plan on coming to our farm the weekend of the 3rd and 4th of May; to pick up your fresh, whole, pasture raised, non-certified Organic chickens. Don’t worry you will not be asked to participate in the harvest, except to bring a cooler to keep your whole chicken fresh. You may want more then one or two because out next harvest wont be until July 12th.
