Finally - Chicken! Don't Miss It!
One of the most common customer questions at co-op is, “Is there ever going to be any chicken for sale through the co-op?”
Now, there is! So, all of you folks who’ve been asking for such a long time, please show your interest and support by trying out a pastured broiler from Rose Creek Farms. Today’s the last day to get one for delivery on June 16.
Here’s the grower’s description of the birds:
Our pastured broilers are raised in mobile pens and have continuous access to sun, grass, insects, and left over veggies from the garden. We grow as much of their feed as we can. Additionally we feed them a supplemental feed that is Certified Non-GMO and all natural. We raise a broiler that takes 12 to 15 weeks to get large enough to process. Conventionally raised chickens are grown in a 6 week period. They get very large very fast and can not move about easily because the tremendous weight gain is too much for their legs. We are not convinced they are all together healthy for folks so we choose to raise a breed that takes longer. They are good foragers and are very healthy. They chase insects and run in the sun up until the time to process them.
Order Open and New Grower!
Dear CTFC Customers,
Order is open for the first October cycle!
Keep checking the product listing over the next few days, as we’ve just provisionally approved a new grower, North Texas Organic, who may have some late-season watermelons for us!
Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful fall weather,
