Pure Maple Syrup

Pure maple syrup is made by tapping maple trees of at least 40 years of age.  The sap collected is then boiled down to make one of my favorite sweeteners ever.  It takes approximately 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup.

Spring time is the season for collecting sap.  Freezing temperatures of the night and the thawing temperatures of the day, are what stimulate the sap to flow up and down the tree and make it available for harvesting.

I get maple syrup from a friend of my family, by the name of Gary, over in Wisconsin.  This is absolutely the best source of maple syrup you will be able to find in the area.  

I have maple syrup on hand for $16/qt.  However, if you pre-order and pre-pay before I bring in another shipment, I can sell it to you for $15/qt.

Broad Breasted Chicken

My Broad Breasted chickens are bred for low activity, rapid feed consumption, and fast muscle growth.

They tend to be lean and large in comparison to my Forager chickens.  Their taste is far more flavorful and wholesome than anything you can find at the grocery store.  We love making chicken stock from their bones, and then chicken soup with the meat and the stock. 

At a week and a half old I put them outside because it was 90-100 degrees all week.

Forager Chickens

My Forager Chickens are bred to be very active in searching for bugs, plants, and other delightful snacks.

They tend to have more fat than my Broad Breasted chickens, which makes amazing gravy! I think the flavor of the meat is more tasty than the Broad Breasted. 

These chickens end up eating more feed than my white Broad Breasted birds, and are harder to process for sale.  Also, with their darker feathers, they are more difficult to clean up nicely for you.  These factors make for a slightly more pricey option than my Broad Breasted chickens.

We give them our scraps, and they love watermelon rinds.
