Hi all! As we’ve scaled back I’ve held hopes we’d be able to fit in raising chickens but our reality is that won’t happen this year. So I’ve been searching farm by farm for someone I could recommend to our customers. My criterion - chickens raised on good pasture in small social groups. I have finally found those farmers! Charity Farms was started by Clint and Charity Frenette right here in our little town of Yale!
Our farms are close; we are in the south side of Yale, Charity Farms on the north - 8 driving minutes from pasture to pasture. But we’re even closer when measured by how we feel animals should be raised and fed. I have visited their farm and seen with my own eyes that their chickens are raised on pasture and it looks good! I’ve seen their cooked chicken – which is featured at the Chapman House in Rochester Hills – and you can see down to the bones, succulent evidence of the chicken’s lush pasture based life!
How this works
Step 1 – Reserve now. Contact Clint or Charity directly to make a deposit and reserve your chickens. They have chickens now! Also being pasture and seasonally based you can work with them to make sure you reserve an ample winter supply of chicken! Pricing is $5.00 lb for whole chickens. They use Munsells, the same awesome USDA inspected processor we used!
Step 2 – Pick up. There will be Detroit Metro pick up options available for fresh and frozen. Clint and Charity will have all those details.
I’m sharing and promoting these hard working farmers with you our Melo peeps to keep my commitment to being the solution to well and humanely raised meat.
