A Farm Fresh Treat for Your Pets

Posted on August 2nd, 2019 by Zach Hawkins

Every summer Saturday morning at dawn, you'll find our chicken butchering crew out in the pasture, gently gathering chickens for humane on-farm processing. By noon we have around 200 scalded, plucked, and cleaned chickens cooling in the powerful air-chiller, and a few days later they are cut up (by a local chef!) and packaged. Along with the familiar legs, thighs, breasts, and wings, we are now offering chicken gizzards, which are wonderful for those who provide raw meat treats to their pets. CSA members with meat shares can swap items for gizzards and those with vegetable shares can order as an extra. Let us know how your pets like them!
