2015 Pastured Poultry


K and H Farms

2015 Pastured Poultry CSA

K and H Farms is proud to offer our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)Pastured Poultry to our community!  Our chickens are grown in bottomless pens in our pastures, scratching, eating bugs and grass while enjoying the fresh air and sunshine!  You will find our chickens to be much healthier and happier than the average chicken.  They are fed non-GMO grains and minerals but get between 20 to 30% of the nourishment from the pasture they live on.  Each day they are moved to new grass.  Their flavor is richer and more vibrant than those in the grocery store...our chickens actually have a flavor!  These are the chickens that we proudly put on our own dinner table!  


K and H Farm’s new 2015 CSA will last 20 weeks--Full Share (May 30 to October 3) or 10 weeks--Half Share (May 30 to August 1, or, August 1 to October 3).  Each “share” will allow you to have one ready to cook whole broiler!  You will pick up your chicken once a week at the Stephens County Farmers Market.  You pay upfront (or by payments) a set price for your “share” of chicken.  These will be whole chickens that you can freeze until you are ready to feed the family!  We do not cut up the chicken but will gladly show you how to when you pick up your order.  We will only offer 30 shares!
The Hatching Chick 1 whole chickens/week $150.00/CSA 10 weeks $3.75/lb
The Hen and Chick 2 whole chickens/week $260.00/CSA 10 weeks $3.25/lb
The Whole Coop 1 whole chicken/week $280.00/CSA 20 weeks $3.50/lb
The Rooster and Hens 2 whole chickens/week $500.00/CSA 20 weeks $3.15/lb

*Payment for CSA needs to be paid in full before the first delivery date. You must pick up your order between 8:00 am-12:00 pm at the Farm or the Stephens County Farmers Market.  Deliveries will be made for a $10.00 extra charge per delivery date.  If you need to double up one week due to vacations, arrangements can be made to accommodate our customers, just let us know a week ahead!


New this year, we are hoping to be state licensed!  This will also allow us to sell extra whole chickens at the Stephens County Farmers Market each week.  These chickens will be $4.00/lb averaging 4 lbs/chicken.  We will also be using non-GMO feed!!

Knowing who raises your food empowers you to have control for healthier food choices for you and your family while strengthening your local economy!  Know your farmer, Know your food!  We welcome all our CSA members to come any time to help move pens, move chickens, or process chickens.  We have an open door policy because we consider YOU a part of our farm!!  We look forward to getting to know you and your family...

The Newest Member of the Farm....


Meet our newest member of the farm...Mama Hen's little bitty.

We have had Mama Hen for 5 years.  She has tried to hatch out a chick three different times.  Something always seems to get her eggs before they hatch.

This time when she started sitting, we marked and watched her closely to make sure she was able to hatch out a little bitty...

And two weeks ago, Mama Hen hatched out the cutest little bitty!  It's a bit camera shy, so no close ups yet..!

The New Brooders

We have new baby chicks coming in next week.  Our brooder has seen better days.  We also needed a brooder that did a better job of keeping the rats, squirrels, chipmunks and other critters out.  One of these critters took off with half of a batch of our chicks last year!

So Stacey has totally used these past snow days to be very productive!  He and Knox have built two new brooders!!

These brooders are really fancy and should work to keep any critters out!



They have two sides...one for the first few weeks with a solid top, two heat lamp, thermometer ...


It also has side vents to help control the temperature...




Stacey added curved corners to keep the babies from smothering each other in the corner...


The other end has an open top covered in a wire mesh...



This allows the chicks to get use to normal day and night temperatures and to enjoy some sunlight.

Hopefully this brooder will keep the critters out of our new little chicks!

But I don't know about THIS critter...

Snow Day Breakfast


Since it was snowing this morning and nobody had school, it was time for pancakes!

HoMeMaDe Pancakes...with fresh Vermont maple syrup!

Grandmama gave us the maple syrup for Christmas and this was the first time that we opened it.  The pancakes are made with our homemade baking mix and fresh laid eggs (of course!).



It was a great start to a fun day of snow watching...
