White Oak Pastures Pasture-Raised Chickens play an important part of our Serengeti Rotation Grazing Model. Our chickens freely roam our pastures completely unconfined, and are never treated with antibiotics or steroids. We harvest and hand butcher our chickens on our farm in our zero waste, USDA Inspected Processing Abattoir. These birds have spent the last 2 years laying eggs, so they are flavorful, with strong bones.
In this package you can expect to receive 7 Stewing Hens each weighing approximately 2 - 2.5 LBS
Because of their diet and exercise, our birds are lean animals. When cooking them, keep in mind they have less fat than commodity chickens. We have found cooking with a wet, slow heat yields a more tender chicken dish. These birds are best used making a nutritious stock or broth!
All orders will ship, vacuum sealed, from our farm in Bluffton, Georgia in a Styrofoam cooler with dry ice. Orders will be delivered frozen or very cold to the touch, depending on the time in transit.
Regardless of what farm you purchase from, there is no such thing as free shipping. Shipping perishable product through the mail is expensive, regardless of how you spin it. We have a large following of customers who pick up orders from our local markets and On-Farm store. It doesn't seems fair to penalize these customers with inflated prices, just so we can get product to more distant customers cheaply.
White Oak Pastures is currently offering equalized shipping to those in a 3Day ground from our farm. At this point, this is how we handle the cost of all Ground Shipments:
$700 and higher= $89.95
If you live outside of a 3Day ground transit, the rates are generated by calculating the weight of the package and the distance to the address provided. Our customers have found that larger orders placed on a less frequent basis seem to be most efficient.
