The warm drawn out Fall came to an abrupt halt. Sideways rain for days and days. In the past two weeks we've had two floods and now a few hard frosts. With October being so dry and warm and our pasture grass bouncing back from the summer drought I was imagining grazing our sheep out there for weeks to come. But the reality of winter is setting in now with large swathes of our pasture under water. So the sheep are tucked into their winter accommodations, our barn and adjacent barn yard to graze. We'll feed them hay now until February or March when we move them back out to the pastures.
You can still find us every weekend at the Olympia Farmers Market. We will be their with our pasture raised chicken through the winter.
A Winter Chicken CSA share would make a fantastic holiday gift for that someone who is invested in nourishing their body with ethically raised meat.
Winter Chicken CSA
We are excited to be able to offer a Winter Chicken CSA this year. It has been our goal since we started the CSA to have it run year round. With our production increase this year we finally have enough chickens! The Winter CSA will run from December through February. The chickens will be delivered frozen. You can choose between two and five chickens a month. We'll be making monthly deliveries to Portland, Olympia, Tacoma, Seattle and East Seattle.
Chicken Locker Pack
and Bulk Orders
Our web store is full of great pasture raised chicken products. We will be making monthly deliveries to all of our drop sites this winter. Its easy to place a order and schedule a delivery. When you order a Chicken Locker Pack you will receive a variety of cuts as well as a whole chicken. Enough to keep you stocked up for a month or two's worth of delicious chicken meals.
We're still doing bulk chicken orders. When you order four or more chickens we take 50 cents off the market price and will deliver to any of our drop sites.
Since we have been farming the Winter months have shifted from something I once dreaded to a welcomed opportunity to slow down, enjoy our family, friends and recharge for the upcoming growing season. We hope you also get the opportunity to restore and enjoy things at a slower pace this Winter. Happy holidays.
