Our Pastured Chickens

Our eggs and roasting chickens come from hens raised the most natural way possible - on grass pasture and fed only non-GMO whole grain feed. This year we're working with two new chicken farmers, John Keim and Jonathan Hostetler of the Smicksburg area about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. The eggs are available at our farm markets and the roaster can purchased through our CSA.

2016 Meat Shares

It's time again to sign up for the best all natural meat you can find in the area!


We've got 100% grass fed beef, pastured pork and pastured chicken to keep you grilling and roasting all year long. Our vegetable farms all raise animals in order to improve their soils and make their farms more sustainable. The meat animals are not certified organic, but they are all natural. All of our animals are antibiotic and GMO free. They are raised on organic pasture and fed organic hay or locally grown non-GMO grains. The cows and pigs are sent to a USDA Certified butcher to be processed and the chickens are butchered on the farm. All our meat is free of nitrates and MSG. 


You'll get bi-monthly deliveries that represent 1/8 of a cow (~48 lb), 1/4 of a pig (~48 lb), or nine chickens (~36 lb).  Find out more about how our cows, pigs and chickens are raised.





Each delivery will bring you about 16 pounds of beef or pork and 12 pounds of chicken. Deliveries will be in June, August and October.
