Pasture-raised chicken

Pasture Raised Chicken

If you've tasted one of our chickens you know why they are so popular. If not, you are in for a real treat! Our chickens thrive on pasture with fresh air, grass, insects, soil and sunshine. Our system of raising broiler chicks is rare in Vermont. Most farms raise broilers inside a barn their whole life. Others raise their chicks inside for up to 3 weeks then put them out on pasture. We raise our chickens outside with access to plants, sunshine, and tasty insects from the day the baby chicks arrive at the farm. The chicks spend a few weeks in our mobile hoophouse which allows them to stay out of the wet, cold spring weather while foraging on leftover winter salad greens which we are no longer harvesting.  We then move the chicks and their mobile hoophouse onto adjacent pasture, where they continue to use the hoophouse for shelter and shade while foraging on pasture. These are the freshest, best tasting chicken you can buy. 

Purchasing Options:

Chicken Share: $135 for 6 chickens (w/giblets).

Supplies are limited and are first come first served.  Purchasing a share means we will reserve chickens for you.  Whole chickens average 4.5 lbs. and range from 3 to 5.5 lbs. Chicken share pickups start in May and finish at the end of August.  Fresh chickens are available for the month of May and again in August. Frozen chickens are available for pickup June through August. 

Individual purchase at our farmstand or the Burlington Farmers Market until sold out.
