chicken 3.75/# You can order whole chickens, or quarters.
smoked chicken 5.00/# (we will smoke these for you by order-so amazingly delicious!!)
freshly baked breads 5.00/loaf We will have multigrain loaves and swope bread available this week.
We will try to offer about 3 choices each week. We do need you to order breads so we know how
many loaves to bake. We can make 14 loaves/week and they will be available on a first come, )
first serve basis. Breads count as part of your share.
