Frost, Chicken Date Correction and Finish Line

Posted 10/4/2019 7:54pm by Michael Scheidel.

Hey folks,

The fantastic fall weather we've been having has finally changed to, well, normal.  We seared on Wednesday with near 90 degree temps but had a great breeze to keep it tolerable.  


Now tonight they are calling for a frost, at least in our neck of the woods.  A touch of frost will make all of our cabbage, broccoli, and kale have that sweetness only frost can bring!  We are hoping to have broccoli available for the last week of CSA.  The peppers might get zapped tonight but at this point in the season, we're not really worried about them!


We have plenty of chicken available from our fall batch of pastured/organically fed broiler chickens!  If you have never eaten a pastured chicken, you are in for a treat!  The difference in texture and flavor from conventional/store bought chicken is a game changer!  Our birds are out on grass and enjoying the sun, grass and bugs!  If you are interested in stocking up on the best quality chicken around, respond to this e-mail with your order.  Details are below.

We request a $5 deposit per bird ordered paid at time of ordering and the balance paid at chicken pick up date which will be October 18 after 5 p.m. 

$4.95/lb. if less than 10 birds
$4.75/lb. from 10-19 birds   
$4.50/lb. if 20 or more birds 
***additional optional fees***
$2.25/bird for cut up and vacuum sealed
$1.25/bird if whole bird vacuum sealed


We have gotten a lot of inquiries about when the last week of our 2019 CSA season is.  The final shares are picked the week of October 14th.  So if you pick up here at the farm on Tuesdays, get a share dropped in Hershey (Wed)or Orwigsburg (Fri) or pick up here on Saturdays, the final dates are the 15th, 16th, 18th and 19th respectively.  

Gratefully Growing!

The Scheidels
