Our chicken season length is somewhat determined by demand and the number of CSA members. As such a portion of your share may be frozen depending on how the season goes. We slaughter 50 birds a week, roughly from mid April through the early Fall.
Your support of our farm before we even have any chicks in the brooder allows us to get our season started and in turn allows us to pass along some savings to you over our regular retail prices. Signing up for a Full Share offers you the best deal at 12% off our retail price of $6/lb. As a CSA member you are guaranteed the number of chickens that you sign up for regardless, of the number of birds we end up raising each season. Our retail customers may find that quantities are quite limited, but as a CSA member your share is reserved for you.
You may choose to pay for your share in one or two installments via check or credit card. Pay with a check and receive 3% off. A payment of 50% of the share cost holds your spot. The remainder must be payed by March 15, 2017. A member agreement must be completed prior to submitting payment. Click here to go to the payment page.
The CSA pick up dates start in April and run 26 weeks through Thanksgiving. You can pick up your birds at any of the farmers' markets we attend or at our twice monthly CSA pick ups in Corvallis (day/time/location TBD). You may pick up at your birds in any amounts (up to 12 birds at a time) and at any intervals. You can choose to pick up one chicken a week or stock your freezer, or anything in between. All we ask is that you pick up the remainder of your share by Thanksgiving. If you choose to pick up your birds at the market please keep in mind that it will be subject to first come, first serve. We are happy to reserve items for you for market pickup with advance notice via email.
