I’ve been excited to hear about other people–pastry chefs, chicken farmers, veal producers and others–who are starting to think about incorporating a CSA-style model into their businesses. I just received this announcement today and hope to go visit the farm and see if it might not be a good source of live chickens for the Portland Meat Collective’s chicken slaughter and butchery classes. If not, it’ll be a great way to get freshly-slaughtered chickens to eat. I haven’t tasted the chickens yet, so can’t vouch for their quality, but I like to think that they’ll be good. And I definitely think this model is a good one.
Wobbly Cart Farming Collective Pastured Poultry
We grow a small flock of slow growing (not Cornish Cross) broiler chickens. They are the Freedom Ranger broiler breed. They come from the same genetic stock as the heritage chicken breeds grown in France for the Label Rouge free range program.
Our chickens are pasture raised. They forage on green grass, dandelions, clover and bugs in the sunshine on the edge of our vegetable fields. We feed them certified organic feed from a small, family-owned mill in British Columbia. They are fed no GMO feed.
Our chickens are brooded, pastured and slaughtered on the farm. We use low stress and humane slaughtering methods. Our priorities are to ensure the highest animal welfare for our birds and provide you with a high quality, healthy, alternative to factory farmed meat.
Whole chickens available for $4/lb, averaging 4 lbs.
Our chicken is available for our customers the same day as slaughter to ensure quality and freshness. Pick up on the farm between 4-6pm on September 18th.
(Delivery to Portland can be arranged on Sept 18th or 19th)
