The Chicken Share is $50 per month. Chicken Shares typically contain 2 whole chickens, or occasionally one whole chicken, and butcher cuts such as leg/thigh quarters, or boneless skinless chicken breasts. Meat Shares are fresh from the processor and will arrive frozen.
Behind the Oaks Farm in Schertz produce this heirloom cross, pasture-raised chicken for our shares. These birds are fed a locally milled GMO-free ration and are regularly rotated. The live a more natural and active life as opposed to the more common cornish cross variety typically raised for just 35-40 days. Expect fuller flavor and heartier texture.
Our farmers are committed to animal welfare, and sustainability in land use, and reject the use of hormones and antibiotics. All animals are pasture-raised and our small-scale farmers work hard to ensure all livestock live healthy, happy, and natural lives. The standards of animal health and welfare from our small local farms greatly exceed that of anything produced on a scale you would find in a grocery. Local, small-scale, pastured meats help ensure fair pay and good working conditions for your farmers, a good life for the animals, and a sustainable approach to including meat in your diet.
You can expect to receive a comparable dollar value to shopping at a local farmers market. Your share volumes may vary, but we guarantee a full value of produce or meat will be packed in your CSA by the completion of the season.
