Turkey and Chicken
NO TURKEYS FOR 2018!
Yes, Janet and Jeff are finally conceding that we have a few too many projects to have time for turkeys this year. (Such as building a new cabin, and infrastructure repairs and improvements on the farm. Plus, we’d like to have a little time off before winter sets in!
FOR 2019 WE SAY: RESERVE YOUR PASTURED-RAISED, NON-GMO TURKEY FOR YOUR 2019 THANKSGIVING
2019 will be in our 6th year of raising 35-50 white broad-breasted turkeys and it gets better every year as we figure out how to provide the best living conditions for these beautiful birds.
We’ll be using non-GMO feed with no animal by products in it. Just so you know, this is not an organic feed.
We are reducing the finish weight to between sf 15-19 pounds. Of course, if you prefer over 20 pounds, we can let them grow longer, just let us know.
This means that we will process them in small batches as they come to weight (starting the first week of Novemberff) on the farm with our inspected mobile processing unit (MPU). These fresh turkeys will have to go in the freezer a few weeks . Most will be harvested the weekend before Thanksgiving.
Last year we had a waiting list toward the Thanksgiving date, so to make sure that you get a turkey, let us know BETWEEN JANUARY AND JUNE AND MAKE A $30 DEPOSIT. Then we will order for you.
$6/lb Pick up at 137 Bob Barnwell Rd, Fletcher as soon as processing complete or we can freeze for you with limited space available.
Jeff Hambley, the turkey farmer
We raise our own broilers (Cornish Cross) chickens in the summer that are pasture raised which means moved on fresh grass twice a day where they get to eat bugs in the grass and little rocks to help them digest.
We started out raising meat for our freezer but enough people inquired and wanted us to raise it for them, too. So now we do mostly commissioned raising of chicks where we give them a good life up to the last 15 seconds! (Yes, we have our own mobile processing unit…all stainless steel; killing cones, scalder, plucker and tables for eviseration.)
Whole ($5/lb) We use Food Saver heavy clear mil bags that we vacuum seal. They last up to 2 years in your freezer. FOR 2018 WE ARE HARVESTING EVERY OTHER WEEK IN JULY BUT ARE SOLD OUT OF WHOLE CHICKENS.
WE DO HAVE FEET AND NECKS FOR SOUP STOCK, AND LIVERS.
