Chicken and other news

Hi CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,

I want to remind you that we are taking chickens to the butcher on Monday, June 23.  Please email me or give us a call at 565-2312 if you would like to pick some up next week.  These chickens are quite large, so we will have a few whole chickens, but most of it will be cut into halves or quarters.  I package the quarters as leg quarters and breast quarters.  The price is $3.75/#.  This is a $.25 increase over last year.  The price of grain went up 35% in the past year, but we are not raising the price to you by 35%. This is a really good price for organic chicken – John Edwards sells nonorganic chicken for $3.90/#.  We work hard to bring really good organic food to you at a reasonable price!

The cool, rainy weather has slowed down all the growth of the veggies.  I will make a decision next week about the date of the first pickup.  I hope it will be July 2.  Please remember we have eggs and chicken all the time.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you,
Your Farmers,
Charlotte and Jim
