Penn's Corner CSA Chicken Shares

Posted 6/5/2008 10:15am by Penn's Corner Farm Alliance.

Buy local chicken through Penn's Corner CSA Chicken Shares this summer.  Dave Chirico of West Liberty Farm in Dubois is a new Penn's Corner member.  Having raised chickens on pasture for the last five years, he is very excited to make his tasty chickens available to Penn's Corner CSA members. 

Ella, from West Liberty Farm, with the pastured poultryIn Dave's own words, "I am dissatisfied with the poultry industry and am offering a much better bird at a reasonable price.  My chickens will have fresh air, sun, shelter, and fresh pasture inside their movable pasture shelters.  All the birds will eat plenty of fresh greens as well as our own blend of grains, vitamins, and minerals.

There will be no hormones or antibiotics fed to our birds and the pasture is maintained using organic practices."

Are the chickens certified organic?  No, but in many ways the pastured chicken is better than organic. Dave's chickens live in fresh grass, which is not required by organic standards.  Animals need to be in the fields, eating grass and bugs to be their healthiest and have the highest levels of nutrients (Like Omega 3’s)!  The pastured bird is treated more humanely, is healthier, and most importantly, it tastes better.

Each Penn's Corner CSA Chicken Share consists of four chickens (one per month) delivered throughout the summer at the East End Food Coop in Point Breeze.  Each chicken weighs an average of 5 pounds and is delivered frozen.  The delivery dates correspond to our regular produce deliveries from 4-6pm on Wednesdays.  The dates are: June 18, July 23, August 27, & September 24.
