Pasture Raised Poultry from Our Family to Yours

Category: our thoughts (page 1 of 4)

Herding Turkeys with a Baby

Our 2-month-old son, Uhtred, loves being outside! He’s met all of the animals, and the turkeys are his stand-out favorites. He loves the noise! Check out this video of our pasture-raised. free-range, non-GMO heritage turkeys being herded around the yard by Uhtred!

Free Range Tom Turkey Fight

Now that the turkeys are reaching maturity, the toms are getting frisky and excited to battle each other for hen affection. Even though the hens ignore the boys, the toms sure do have fun messing with each other!

Guard Geese to the Rescue!

Our trio of geese stand guard over our free range, pasture raised flock of Red Ranger broilers. Their presence protects from aerial predators and they deter four-footed creatures with their ridiculously loud honking! Check out this video to hear them sound the alarm, even though it’s only us approaching. Good job, geese!

Pastured Poultry Delivered to Your Front Door!

We are excited to announce that we now offer delivery for our pasture raised chicken, duck and duck eggs to customers in the Greensboro, NC area!

KW Homestead at the Corner Market

We love seeing customers at the Farmers Market, but sometimes you just can’t make it!

We realize that sometimes it’s hard to get to the farmers market, but that doesn’t mean you want to go an entire week without your delicious, free range poultry fix. So, we decided to offer a delivery option to our local customers, both old and new.

Delivery Fees and Protocol

For now, until we get our new online store fully stocked and functional, we will be taking delivery orders by email. We’ll then let you know your delivery date, and ask that if you will not be home, to leave a cooler with ice packs by your front door, preferably in the shade.

  • Orders  $150 and over receive free delivery!
  • Orders $40  – $149 have a $7.95 delivery fee.
  • Orders $30 – $39.99 have a $9.95 delivery fee.
  • Orders $15 – $29.99 have a $14.95 delivery fee.
  • Orders under $15 have a $22.95 delivery fee.

The more you buy, the lower the fee! Of course, all orders picked up at the farmers market in Greensboro are always free.

These fees also apply to our Chicken CSA customers who would like to take advantage of home delivery. In this case, we will use your discounted price to figure out the delivery fee. For example, our Deluxe Chicken CSA is $4.99/lb, so if you order two 4.5 pound chickens, your product total is $44.91 (9 lbs x $4.99) with an added delivery fee of $7.95.  You could also add other items, like a dozen duck eggs, to this order if you like!

So remember, don’t feel down the next time you can’t make it to the farmers market, simply shoot us an email (ourochreway@gmail.com) with your order, and we’ll make sure you get your favorite humanely raised and harvested, duck, chicken, and eggs.

SPECIAL!!! This week enjoy 10% off all chicken parts! From boneless breast to juicy thighs! Expires after Saturday August 26, 2017.

 

Our Dexter Cows Move to New Pasture

Cows are really just about the easiest animals to manage… They respect the electric fence, they’re easy on the land, and they’re pretty laid back.

This video shows Jason moving our 3 Dexter cows from an old pasture space into another space, filled with tall and delicious greenery! You can see each of the 3 cows up close and personal!

Birthday Party Piglet

Perhaps the most fun we have around here is when we get to take our animals to schools, birthday parties, community centers, and other cool places. We love sharing a taste of the farm with others and kids just love the experience! If you’re interested in booking Spaetzle, our ducks, and turkey for a visit of your own, check out Our Farm to Your School page.

Check out this video of Spaetzle the piglet enjoying a birthday party and eating grass while wearing a party hat!

Meet the Dexter Cows: Bull Johnny & Heifer Dani

It’s been a while since we’ve filmed the cows, so we thought it was a great time to reintroduce you! This video shows you how much Johnny had grown and we talk about how perhaps Dani is pregnant!

Pekin & Runner Ducklings Join the Homestead

The first batch of these cute duck babes arrived here this week! They spent the first few days inside (since the outside temperatures dropped to 20 with lots of wind) and they’ve been growing steadily!

The Pekin breed is the breed we raise for meat, and we decided on a few Runner ducks as well, a hilarious breed that stands super tall and looks like they might just fall over at all times! There’s not much cuter than a baby duck!
