They still have Chicken CSA shares available for Fall, Winter and Spring. A Chicken CSA from August Farm is the most convienent way to have pasture-raised chicken in your freezer year round (even if you don’t have a chest freezer). Check out our website
for details.One of the advantages of buying whole chickens is being able to make stock with the neck, back and carcass. I’ve been super excited about chicken stock and actually, in the future, we want to add chicken stock into our commercial production. Homemade stock is far superior to anything you can by in the store and it is so good for you. Homemade stock is full of minerals and nutrients like calcium, magnesium, phospherous and other trace minerals. Stock and broth are also high in gelatin which is helpful in aiding digestion and supporting joints and cartilage. For a deeper understanding of the health benefits of homemade stock and recipes check out this article
by the Jade Institute.
