23rd March 2017 - Fresh pasture raised Fryers

Our fist batch of fryers are going in on April 5th. Since we have been starting to have some nice weather these fryers have been moved out onto fresh lush green spring grass and are also given a non GMO grower feed that we get locally from Mosiac Farms in Philomath. These fryers should weigh from 4 to 5 plus pounds. Usually my first batch do however run a little big so there might be some in the 6 plus pound range. They are $4.95/lb. Take 5 or more $4.50/lb. Have plenty of freezer space and would like to stock up? These fryers freeze very well in the bag that they come in and we are still enjoying last last springs batch, we are offering $4.25/lb. if you were to purchase 10 or more. These fryers have lots of meat on them, more than what you would find at the grocery store and the meat is very juicy, tender and has amazing flavor. Perfect to bake, roast, BBQ or throw in the crockpot. They would also make a great addition to your Easter feast!
