Just like with the release of Beaujolais Nouveau — the third Thursday in November when winemakers in France release the current year’s vintage of beaujolais, meant to be consumed immediately — on Tuesday, June 28 the gates of Lover’s Creek Farm swing open for pick up of our first crop of 2011 pasture-raised chickens.
- That means you can get your flavourful chickens just in time for barbeque and smoking season.
- There’s nothing like the taste of one of these birds barbequed or roasted with a the skin crisped up with an oil and herb rub coating.
- Or, use the old standby beer can chicken method. Any way works great.
Conditions for raising our chickens have been perfect this year — lots of rain early on, followed by warm conditions to keep pasture growing yet giving the birds mostly cooler conditions in the evenings. They’re grown out really nicely.
As always, we sell our chickens whole. If you’d like to buy yours fresh — allowing you the chance to take them home and cut them up yourself —please RSVP. You’ ll have to pick up fresh birds between 7 and 9 p.m. on June 28. Otherwise they’ll be frozen down.
This year’s price is $3.75/lb for whole chickens that will weigh about 5 to 6 lbs., processed.

Remember that we have lots of free-range Tamworth pork and large brown eggs on hand too. Just ask!
