Chicken Order Form

Freedom Ranger chickens are raised between the rows of our organic apple orchard using specially designed chicken tractors. Each morning our birds are moved to fresh pasture to ensure the health of our soils and to provide our birds with clean pasture to forageBy integrating livestock into the orchard, we can provide valuable soil nutrients, control weeds, and reduce insect pest populations. All while producing a delicious final product. 

Whole chickens are $8.00/lbs and they range from 3.5-5.5 lbs
