The chicken co-op is currently taking orders for the 2013 year.
We are happy to announce Albright Farms Chicken Co-op, which will allow you to purchase our chickens at a discounted price. In addition this year we have added the option of a beef CSA, which allows for you to pick one or more of our ground beef packages. For more information on our beef please refer to the beef tab on the side.
We are also offering our chicken co-op members the chance to order their turkeys early for thanksgiving.
Why choose us?
We only sell chicken that we raise, this means that all chicken sold is raised on our farm. They are part of our farm's life cycle. The feed they eat is raised on our farm, fertilized with manure they leave behind, completing the cycle. Their diet includes corn, grass, oats, roasted soy beans, and bugs they find in the ground. The only things they are fed not coming from our farm are a natural feed supplement containing fish meal, kelp, vitamins and minerals, and ground oyster shells to support bone strength.
Our chickens are fed no antibiotics, no by product; animal or grain based. No animal fats. The meat is not enhanced or injected with anything. We are with the chickens from start to finish. We get them when they are hours old. We start the chickens in a brooder house and they are moved onto grass as soon as they are old enough and as weather permits. They are moved onto fresh grass every day.
When chickens are harvested we load and transport them to processing in a short period of time so they are not spending extended periods of time in cages on trucks. We remain with the chickens from start to finish.
Our birds have minimal "food miles." They are grown on our farm, raised with grain on our farm, processed within 45 minutes of home, and sold at local markets.
Join our co-op and start enjoying the benefits of locally-raised, truly free-range chicken. Sign up today!
