Fall Chicken From Little Peace Farm!

Posted 7/17/2018 5:53am by Michael Scheidel.

Hey folks,
Yesterday was sticky.  Wow, even during the hot stretch a couple of weeks ago, I don't think I sweated like I did yesterday.  These humid conditions are not only uncomfortable but create great environment for tomato disease!  So, protect your crop using either a home made baking soda spray(click here for article) or an approved copper based product.  Here's a typical recipe from

A solution of 1 teaspoon baking soda to 1 gallon of water reduces instances of leaf burn. Add 1 teaspoon dormant oil and ½ teaspoon of dish soap or horticultural soap as a surfactant to help the mixture stick. Keep in mind the solution is water soluble, so apply on a dry cloudy day for best results.


We are taking orders for our fall batch of delicious pastured chicken.  We will receive day-old chicks the third week in August and will process them 8 weeks later, or mid-October.  These birds are raised in movable pens where they get plenty of sunshine, bugs and fresh grass with a move each day.  They are fed transitional organic feed from Panorama Organics Mill in Oley, PA.  Below are the details:
