I'm taking the plunge and starting a Chicken and eggs CSA for this year. I'll be opening it up to 10 customer/families this year. Starting off small isn't a bad thing sometimes.
In the CSA membership package, each customer/family will receive 4 whole oven-ready chickens, a month from June into November, as well as 1 dozen eggs per week for 21 weeks.
I am finalizing the price with Wendy this weekend, but it looks to be somewhere between $342 and $400 dollars. We are finalizing the per pound price which is the reason for the difference.
I'll be updating this post sometime in the upcoming week with the final price.
We received the first installment of broiler chicks this morning and they are growing nicely in the brooder, and our resident hens are producing 18 to 20 eggs a day, and we haven't hit the heavy producing season for them yet.
I'm excited about the prospect of our fledgling CSA, and look forward to adding to it delicious things like Vegetables, pork, honey, and herbs.
If you are interesting in learning more about our poultry CSA, drop us a comment or email and we'll get you all the information on its way to you.
