Wild Thymes Farm
Our 2023 Chicken Share registration is now open!
We offer high quality, pasture-raised chickens from July through November. Our birds are fed certified organic corn-free, soy-free feed to supplement what they find in our grass. We also raise mealworms for extra protein. The chickens are raised humanely in mobile chicken coops that we move every single day. This system eliminates the need for antibiotics and other health treatments. Chickens are part of our long-term soil management system aimed at creating thriving topsoil and nutritious food to support our community.
Chicken Share Details
Members pick up their chickens at Wild Thymes Farm in Bayfield or the Durango Farmers Market.
Each member attends 5 pickups throughout the year.
For convenience there are two options for pickup dates per month July - November; you need only attend one per month. See 2023 Schedule below.
Half shares purchase two chickens at each pickup; full shares purchase four chickens at each pickup.
Chickens are sold fully frozen, whole.
Feet, hearts, and livers are available separately.
Members register with a $10/bird down payment. This helps us to get started for the year and encourages members to pickup the birds they've reserved. This $10/bird credit is redeemed at pickup - chickens are priced at $7 per lb. (weighing 3.5-5.5 lb). The remaining price per pound will be paid at pickup via cash, check, or credit card.
Example: As a half share member you choose two delicious 4 lb. chickens at pickup. The total price is $56.00. After accounting for your $10 per bird membership credit, you will pay $36.00 at pickup.
