Friends! We are so so grateful to our community that continues to support this little family operation! And so we’re back (not from outerspace) with 2018 pastured chicken dates!
For those of you that are new, join us! Here’s how it works…
- You decide how many chickens you want at the three pickup dates: June 9, August 18, October 27. The number of chickens varies greatly for each custome and should depend on your family size and freezer space. The chickens are whole (key to remember for freezer space).
- You reserve your chickens with a $5 deposit per chicken (mail or paypal) and your order form.
- You show up on pickup day between 2-5pm to get your ultra-local, pastured chicken.
- Cook your chicken and taste the difference!
- This year there will be smaller batches in June and October. Please be mindful when ordering! This is to accommodate Solstice Fest (yup, chicken will be on the menu this year!) and Turkeys (!!!) in the fall. Please try to put your larger, stock-up order for the August date. We will operate on a “first come, first serve” basis with orders, so please get your orders in ASAP.
- If a pickup date does not work, please let us know. We have so many families from similar neighborhoods and I’m sure we can help you arrange a chicken pickup carpool!
- More info on turkeys soon!
Hi friends – We are a little behind in getting out our 2017 chicken order form, but here it is! We already have our first batch at the farm. They are enjoying warm days in the “brooder” under heat lamps and when they get their first feathers, they move out onto pasture. Here’s farm girl tending to “her babies.”
We will have 3 pick up days this year – June 10, August 19, October 21. Please download the CWF 2017 Pastured Chicken Order Form, fill it out and get it back to us with your deposit however you can. As usual, birds go quickly, so make sure you get yours in soon! Payment is accepted via check, paypal, or cash. Let us know if you have any questions – firstname.lastname@example.org
We recently had another pork pickup day and took the opportunity to lay out a half hog share to demonstrate what it looks like and weigh how much exactly it is.
Hands down, the most common question we get is, “how much meat is a half share really?” With a the help of a 4-year old added for scale (and cuteness), below is what it looks like! We laid out the cuts in the shape of a pig, so that you can get a sense of where the cuts come from and how much to expect from each area.
As there is a lot of variability in a how you can get a half hog butchered, this is just a common example and each order looks a bit different. This customer did a great job maximizing their order for how their family eats and is a great example of why buying a half hog share is a fantastic value for the pork-lover with sufficient freezer space.
This particular half share had a hanging weight of: 127.5 lbs. which is an average weight, perhaps even a little on the big side. Here’s the breakdown of weights from each section listed above:
2 roasts – 2.12, 3.13 lbs.
Chops (4 packs of 2 each) – 2.5, 2.6 ,2.6, 2.3 lbs.
Boston Butt – 11.3 lbs!
Picnic – 9.1 lbs.
Ribs – 2.8 (a lot smaller than most people assume that they are getting)
Belly (Bacon) – This adventurous customer chose to have the belly cut into 2-3 lb packs to cure and smoke at home: 3.4, 2.1, 3.5 lbs. Most customers have the butcher cure, smoke & slice their bacon for them
Ham 9.8 lbs.
Ham Steaks – 2.7, 2.8, 2.4, 2.5 lbs.
Sausage – 17 lbs. of various flavorings
Hocks – 2 lbs.
Leaf Lard – 1.1 lbs.
Fatback – 7.3 lbs.
Bones – 2.1 lbs.
Neck/back bones – 1.6 lbs.
Ear – 0.6 lbs.
Extras that this customer didn’t take, but are available: Head, Liver, Skin, Heart, Tail…
