Chicken is Worth the Trip!

I was a shareholder last year but not able to continue due to distance and gas costs, since I'm three hours away. However, if you are too far away to take advantage of the herd share program, there are still other ways to benefit from this farm, which is unique in being directed by a trained scientist and lifelong farmer/ farm family. Last year we purchased 25 pastured chickens from Pasture's Delights. They have a unique flavor and juiciness even when compared to other grass fed poultry. They are at once slightly sweet, full of healthy and flavorful fat, and easy to prepare, without any gaminess at all. Chickens are slaughtered on-farm, so they are very fresh when packaged and either flash frozen on site for a fee or when you bring them home.
I look forward to this farm continuing to grow its product line. I have also tried the honey in the farm store and it's a nice, local, low-cost variety. There is a certified Master Gardener on staff this year and I really look forward to organic produce later in the season when I make the trip down to Decatur. It's a worthwhile trip for anyone in IN, lower MI or OH.
