Hello! We apologize for the fact that it has been a long time since we’ve posted anything. Life is busy on the farm in the summer! On June 21st, we processed our first batch of broilers for the year. This first batch was for our freezer; the next batch can be for yours. All you have to do is place an order on our pastured broilers page. We expect to process the second batch in early October. If you’d like to watch a 5 minute video of our first processing day this year, head on over to YouTube.
This was our first time saving the chicken feet to use for broth. We washed them well then froze them on cookie sheets. After they were frozen, we bagged them in freezer bags. It has been nice being able to pull out a couple at a time to add when we make broth. If you order chickens from us and would like the feet saved, let us know when you place your order. The feet add gelatin to the broth which aid digestion and can even help heal digestive disorders.
