Summer Newsletter: Happy Summer Solstice!

Celebrate Summer and Order you pasture-raised Chicken.


Solstice for many years has been a celebration associated with agriculture. With the earth's axis leaning in towards the sun we receive the longest day of the year. I anticipate this shift as the hallmark of warm, dry weather approaching.


Our Spring has been packed full of action. We have been playing mother hen to baby chicks and poults (baby turkeys), tending two new meowser kittens (the most adorable distraction yet to date), rotating pig pasture, and doing our best to keep up with maintaining the pasture without the help of ruminants.  I can't wait for lawn mowers on four legs that prefer grass for every meal!  


We just put our second batch of chickens out on pasture.  I always love this moment: all their natural instincts suddenly make sense.  They are able to scratch around for bugs, slugs and seeds; take dust baths; run around; and forage the pasture. For those of you that don’t know, we moved to a new farm (a mere 5 miles down the road) in March, and it is great.  Despite the process of getting dialed in, we have been loving our new space.  The property has a beautiful westward view of the valley that makes evening chores incredibly pleasurable.

 
Our first batch of chicken will be ready July 1st, so reserve your chicken today.  You have the option of on-farm pick-up the day of (see below for the list of harvest dates) or we are offering delivery to Portland, Olympia, Seattle and Tacoma through our Chicken CSA program.
