New Whole Chicken Sizes
Whole chickens are very popular and are usually in short supply because we had limited our offering to smaller sizes. To help keep whole birds in stock we decided to add a couple of larger sizes. We now offer 2.9 and 3.1 kg birds.
We're adding some tasty new chicken items, just in time for the BBQ!
Now that our new processing facilities are close to opening we are planning to offer a whole line of new chicken products including chicken stirfry, barbecue kabobs and CHICKEN SAUSAGES of all types (I can hear the applause from here). So please stay tuned because things are about to become very interesting!
If you have already placed an order and want to add to it, you can either:
- Place another order and we will combine them when we fill the orders for that week, or;
- If what you would like to add is less than our minimum order ($50), please contact us and we will update your order and send you a confirmation email.
If there is something you would like that is "out of stock" on the website, please put a note in the comments section of your order (include the item name and number you would like). If we receive the item before we fill your order, we will happily add it for you. 🙂
(Order cut-off is SUNDAY!)
BACK IN STOCK
Experience the breathtaking beauty of TK Ranch by following my husband Dylan's photos on Instagram. He updates the site almost daily so you can keep in touch with what is happening here. We hope to develop calendars and sell framed prints in the future — so please stay tuned.
Our sows (two pictured above) are just beginning to farrow (have their babies) out on pasture. Our pigs are never confined in barns; they are always on pasture and are given ample shelter from the weather with shade huts in the summer and warm straw bale shelters in the winter. One of the arc huts they use for farrowing is at left in the photo. Pasturing all of our pigs is what makes our program unique in the industry because many "pasture raised" pork producers do not let their sows outside. They keep them confined in barns their entire lives and only the weaned piglets are finished on pasture.
As dry as it has been this winter and spring we were wondering if the crocuses would bloom, but they are finally showing their pretty faces all over the native prairie.
Our cattle are also enjoying being back out on the range close to home. We keep them close until May to ensure we can move them to safer quarters in the event of a late spring snow storm.
