Helder~Herdwyck Farm is now accepting orders for our first batch of pastured broilers. These birds will be obtained at 3 weeks of age and will be reared another 3 to 5 weeks on our pasture as part of our soil remediation plan. They will follow alongside our layers, behind the sheep, feeding on fresh, green grass and bug candy in the warm sun and fresh air. Here is our flyer and order form. Feel free to past it on, share it and use it to order your fresh chicken! We are excited to offer this new product and we look forward to hearing from you.
