Flatlander Farm is proud to offer it's second year of Chicken CSA shares and first ever Duck and Black Label Chicken Pre-Buy program for the 2016 season. Our pasture raised Freedom Rangers (what we offered last year) is available in two share sizes. Duck and Black Label Chicken are available through deposits on each bird. All birds will be raised in our movable pasture system and fed Vermont milled, Certified Organic Grain.
Purchasing a share at the beginning of the season has many advantages for our customers and for us as farmers. The CSA format is essential for our farm for the following reasons:
1- Allows us to plan our year around what customers actually want
2- Limits the total operating loan we must take out in order to make the season possible. Without the CSA we are carrying the cost of the grain, chicks and various other expenses from June until birds are ready in August/September.
3- Ensures that you get our delicious Pastured Raised Chicken and Duck. Every year we raise more and sell out even faster than the season before.
Submission of 2016 CSA form and payment must be received in order to reserve your share. A full payment must be received by April 30th, 2016. Shares will be on a first come, first served basis. Send your payment in early to lock in your share. Birds will be available for pick up on farm, at the Burlington Winter Farmers' Market and on select weeks at the Middlebury Farmers' Market. Please contact us if you feel another location would be an ideal pick up location. Please visit our website for more information on processing dates.
