This morning, we took twenty-four Jumbo Cornish X Rock meat birds to the processor to be killed, processed, bagged and refrigerated. We will place the sign at the end of the driveway, stating that they are ready for sale and we will offer them both here on the farm and to our farm market customers on Saturday morning in Greenville, by the library, from 9 til 1 PM. We will also sell our usual eggs there too.
We will place a note on the board to knock on the house door if they wish to purchase a Jumbo Cornish X Broiler, which we'll have in the freezer in here. I picture this working well at the modest price of $17.75 for a 4-5 pound, free ranging, all natural fed chicken. If so, we will order another 25 birds and continue doing so approximately every month, so that we have meat birds for sale all year long. It's a small price to pay when you positively know where your food is coming from and you know that we feed only natural feed and never use any chemicals or hormones. We do it right! And our returning customers prove it! I'm sure we will receive rave reviews about our chicken and turkey's, just as we receive good reviews from our customers about loving our eggs.
