On the 1st of May, Allison and I are headed to Missouri and we'll be gone about a week.
I've got a grazing school to go to (learning all kinds of cool things about healthy farming practices), and Allison will continue further south to visit her family.
Our plan is the swing up through IL on our way home to see some of my family. Can you believe, I haven't met my little niece Elwynn yet and she was born way back in November!
Meanwhile, for those of you who ordered, your chickens are enjoying their first week in the outdoors! I moved them outside on the 28th of April.
I hope you're excited to see for yourself how my little chicken farm works, I want my customers to know exactly how things are going.
Here's my plan for the year on how I will run my chicken sales.
If you want whole chickens(significantly cheaper), you need to order before I butcher. I do have a few left, if you're interested and haven't ordered yet.
I plan to turn any unsold birds into legs and thighs, wings, boneless skinless breast, and soup stock packages. You are welcome to purchase your preferred parts anytime throughout the year so long as they are in stock. (I'm still working on pricing)
Remember: I will only have whole chickens for you if you pre-order and pick them up on the butcher date.
This is my new strategy trial for the year, hopefully it's one that really works out well for everybody.
I'm hoping to raise a second batch this fall, but I'm not guaranteeing it at this point.
