Wild Thymes Farm

CHICKEN SHARE

We offer high quality, pasture-raised chickens to Bayfield and Durango from June through the end of October. Our birds are fed certified organic corn-free, soy-free feed to supplement what they find in our grass. They 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

 

Half Shares reserve 9 chickens while Full Shares reserve 18 chickens.

 

There will be 9 pickup days running late June-October 2022 for everyone. Exact schedule to be announced. Each member can choose to come to our pickups in either Durango or Bayfield. All birds are sold fully butchered, frozen whole. 

Chickens are priced at $7.50 per lb* (weighing 3-5 lb). Members put down $10 per bird as a deposit by March 30. The remaining price (per pound) of each chicken will be paid at pickup via cash, check, venmo, or credit card.

Example: You choose a plump 4 lb. chicken at pickup. The total price is $30.00. After accounting for your $10 membership deposit, you will pay $20.00 at pickup.

*A note about our pricing: We increased our price per pound this year due to increases in the cost of organic feed, shipping and chicks. We believe that the true cost of food is not reflected in what you see in supermarkets - agricultural practices suffer to maintain these prices, even with government subsidies. Our meat is superior to what you can find in stores and the flavor attests to that. We hope you will continue to support our farm business.
