Bulk 5 Whole Chicken – Cornish

Bulk 5 Whole Chicken – Cornish

$120.00

This is the popular, wide-breasted mainstream chicken of North-America.  These birds have been bred and adapted to grow fast and produce beautiful, tender, white meat.  The reason our chicken is different is because instead of raising them in a barn with limited space and disease potential, our birds are raised on pasture where they can bask in the sun, soaking up vitamin D, peck at the ground, eat bugs and grass and take dust baths.  This production model also allows us to skip out on antibiotic use.  The result is, rich flavor and a nutritional profile that simply does not compare with store-bought alternatives.

As Micheal Pollan says, “When chickens get to live like chickens, they’ll taste like chickens too.”

The final price will be based on actual weight

$4.75/lb  (Average size is 4-7lbs)

A deposit of $50 reserves five birds for you! 

NOTE: OUR CHICKENS ARE A VERY SEASONAL PRODUCT AND ARE READY IN SEPTEMBER UNTIL SUPPLIES LAST!  Paying in full or a deposit any other time of the year (highly recommended because they sell out fast) guarantees availability when they are ready.

  • I’ve have been buying meat and eggs for years from Farm One Forty without complaint. I know that Arlie cares about me and my family. We aren’t just customers, we’re part of her community. I trust and appreciate Farm One Forty’s focus on quality and community.

  • We’ve tried all the different cuts of meat now and I wanted to let you know how good it is.  We are very impressed with taste, tenderness and the quality of cuts.  The butcher did a great job and of course we really appreciate the way you raise and feed the animals.

  • We made a large purchase of five pigs from Farm One Forty last fall. It was shared among neighbours, friends, family and through our Wandering Market. The amazing thing about purchasing from Arlie and Brett is that you are not only getting a top quality, great tasting product but that you are supporting sustainability and a healthy planet for all.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

WHEN WILL MY ORDER BE READY

That’s a good question – and unfortunately, we can’t give you an exact date. There is a host of unknown factors in raising animals – the date of their birth, when they go out to pasture, their health, how fast they grow, even their genetics and personality (is this animal a jock or a couch potato?).  Because our local craft butcher only works with a limited number of animals at a given time, we can’t predict with certainty exactly when your animal will be butchered, but the chart below will give you a ballpark idea.

We can promise you, however, that if you place your order early, you will receive your box early. And when we are preparing to send your animal for processing, we will let you know when your box is likely to be ready. Here is the general timeline for the bulk of the processing but we usually keep some inventory on hand while supplies last so it never hurts to check with us because even if a product is “out of season” we might be able to help you sooner:

Product Processed Delivered &/or Pickup
PORK October / November October -Early Spring
BEEF November-January December-Early Spring
LAMB November/December November-Early Spring
CHICKEN Early September September

 

HOW MUCH FREEZER SPACE DO I NEED?

Let’s put it this way – the average Variety Pack is probably going to take more than the spare space in your kitchen freezer. As a general rule of thumb, I usually allow 1 cubic foot of freezer space for 20-30 lbs of meat – and I am being conservative here because I know my freezer is not super organized! Truth is, most people who buy bulk meat also invest in an inexpensive deep freezer, which pays for itself with the first purchase of even a quarter share of meat. Multiply that by yearly bulk purchases, and you’re looking at significant savings.

Trying to picture it? Here’s a rough visual guideline:Square Red Cooler 2

Variety Pack # of coolers
Bulk Beef Eighth: 1.25 – 1.5 coolers, Quarter: 2.5 – 3 coolers
Bulk Pork 1 heaping full cooler
Bulk Lamb Will easily fit in your cooler with room for a few brewski’s on top

HOW DO I CUSTOMIZE MY ORDER?

“Customized” usually means “complicated,” right? Not here!  We’ve set up a convenient menu of optional cuts for each Variety Pack. Simply check off the cuts you want in a single Variety Pack when you place your order; then, if you’re ordering two or more packs, repeat the process for each additional pack. This way, you can create your own custom pack for each side or quarter, selecting among all the standard cuts: chops, roasts, steaks; or for pork, bacon, sausage and ham. Whatever you choose, all of the cuts in each pack come from a single animal.

Or if you’ve got grand plans and are looking for something special, we can help you customize your order just so, with a downloadable Butcher Cut Sheet here. We charge $15 extra for custom cut sheets.

HOW CAN I PICK UP MY ORDER? DO YOU DELIVER?

You can select your mode of pickup or delivery when you place your order. We will notify you when your order is ready, and ask that you make arrangements to pick it up within a week, using your chosen method.

  1. Pick up at farm (Free): Take a drive in the country, 15-minutes west of Saskatoon, pick up your order, and stay to tour the farm!  The other bonus is, you’ll get a chance to purchase other smaller items like honey, eggs, soap, etc. that are typically only available at the farm.
  2. Clustered delivery at a public site ($10): We announce when and where we’ll be distributing orders to customers (usually during the week, over a noon hour at Soul Foods Grocer) and you let us know if you can make it to pick up during that time.
  3. Home delivery ($50): We’ll let you know when your order is ready, and coordinate a date and time for delivery.

SHOULD I PAY A DEPOSIT? OR SHOULD I PAY IN FULL?

All of our variety packages are pre-ordered and seasonal. You can reserve an order anytime, paying a deposit or paying in full as you please, but our products are butchered and ready for delivery and pickup in the Fall.

We have a limited supply of all products and accept orders only as long as supply lasts. Payments are non-refundable if you change your mind, but you can apply them as credits to buy another product, hold for a future purchase or transfer them to a friend/family member/neighbour.

If you pay a deposit, we will contact you several weeks before your order is ready, and you will be able to pay any remaining amount due at that time.

WHY SHOULD I BUY BULK?

If you know your family loves beef, pork, lamb, or chicken, and you know you’re going to be picking it up again and again at the grocery store – why not save yourself the trips and the fluctuating prices and quality? With one bulk purchase, you won’t have to worry about buying meat again for a long time!  This is the most economical way of getting our products.

We guarantee that you’ll receive your selected amount of premium quality meat, in an assortment of different cuts from a single animal to ensure consistent quality and food safety.

This, by the way, is the only way you can secure all of our premium meat cuts, as we can’t promise the availability of individual cuts. And if you’ve never worked with a particular cut, just let us know – we’ll be happy to provide recipes and tips!

WHY ARE FARM ONE FORTY PRODUCTS DIFFERENT?

First of all – consider us artisanal! All of our products are raised with care on our small farm. We aim for extraordinary quality, not quantity…. so quantities are limited.

We work with a licensed, inspected, local craft butcher; a person processes the whole animal by hand from start to finish. All of the cuts in a Variety Pack come from a single animal, and they’re not vacuum-sealed or factory-finished to a standard size, weight, or shape, like those you’ll see in a grocery store. For example, bacon (i.e., smoked pork belly) is the shape of a pig’s belly, sliced long strips tapering to short. Finally, because the size and body mass of each animal is unique, each Variety Pack has a varying number of packages of each cut (see the tables for more info).
