2022 Holiday turkeys still available! $4.25/pound. Local pickup only.
Available now! Pasture raised with non-GMO feed, no antibiotics. Humanely slaughtered on site. Whole frozen chicken (with neck and giblets) for local pick up only $3.50/pound. Cut up chicken (no back, neck, or giblets) for $4.50/pound. Call or email for details, and to reserve your order.
Wait! What are giblets? Giblets are organ meat–heart, liver, and gizzard. All tucked neatly inside along with the chicken neck. What do I do with giblets? Don’t panic! They make an excellent gravy. In a small sauce pan, boil the neck and giblets in 2 cups of water with a chopped carrot, one cut up onion, some celery leaves, garlic, salt, pepper, and fresh or dried herbs if you have them–parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme, just like going to Scarborough fair. Let simmer for an hour. Drain it all through a sieve. You can pick the chicken neck and chop up the giblets and put them back in the gravy, or if you don’t like organ meat feed it to the pets. Put the broth back in the saucepan and heat it again. Mix equal parts cold water and flour (or corn starch) in a small cup and mix until smooth. Pour into the simmering gravy and stir until thickened. Add juices from your roasted chicken and Voila! Delicious gravy to go with your chicken dinner!
“It was the best dang turkey I ever had. Ever. Anywhere. I played my part but you gotta start great to end great when it comes to most meats and y’all grow a great turkey.” —Derrick Whetzel, Esquire.
STILL AVAILABLE! Our turkeys are pasture raised with non-GMO feed, no antibiotics. Humanely slaughtered on site. Fresh or frozen, for local pick up only. Call or email to reserve your order. $4.25/pound frozen, $4.50 fresh.
[Workshops are over for 2022. We plan to run this popular event again next year, so check back!] New for 2022! Sign up for our butchering classes and take home your hand-processed holiday turkey. We’ll walk you through each step of the way, from selecting your bird from the free-ranging flock, to scalding, plucking, gutting, chilling and bagging your bird. This event takes place on our picturesque farm just a few miles north of Harrisonburg. Contact us to register. Click here for a brochure with more details.
Celadon and Jumbo Quail, eggs, chicks, or meat
Quail eggs! Celadon Coturnix quail eggs (blue) and Jumbo Coturnix (brown speckled). Washed and refrigerated. $4.00/dozen. Local pick up only, and guess what! You can return the boxes to get a .50 discount your next purchase, and to reduce packaging. Zero waste!
Quail meat. Package of two or four quail, fresh or frozen. Humanely raised and slaughtered on site. Pasture raised, no antibiotics or medications, non-GMO feed. $16.00/pound. This might sound like a lot, but it’s essentially $5.00/bird. That’s about what you would pay for a live quail, which you would then have to kill, dress, and package all on your own if you wanted to eat it.
Quail chicks. We have live quail chicks (or adults) to sell. Choose from Celadon Coturnix (blue egg layers, several color varieties) or Jumbo Coturnix (brown speckled eggs, larger birds, standard coloring). $3-$8 per chick depending on age and size.
Heritage Breed Chicken Eggs
Pasture raised, heritage breed hens produce multi-colored eggs. Our eggs are collected daily and are unwashed. Hens walk across a bed of sand to lay their eggs which keeps them clean. Eggs will keep at room temperature for up to 3 weeks. Refrigerated, eggs keep almost indefinitely! Our breeds include: Barred Rock, Rhode Island Red, Ameraucana, Welsummer, Wayandotte, Brown Leghorn, and Buff Orpington. We also have some hybrids: Olive Eggers (lay green eggs!) and black sex-link. We sell boxes of 10 eggs, $4.00 per box. Please return the boxes to get 50 cents off your next order, and reduce packaging waste to boot.
