I wanted to let everyone know about this amazing opportunity to get fresh local chicken from Badger’s Millside Farm. The quality is incredible and if you have never had real chicken prepare to be blown away. It is unlike any other chicken you have ever tasted.
It’s time to subscribe to the chicken club to guarantee you receive seasonally fresh, pasture-raised chickens that taste great.
The chickens are back in the brooder for 2013.
The 2013 club will run May through October, with the first delivery set for May 7. The other delivery dates are June 4, July 9, August 6, September 3, and October 8.
We’ve streamlined the process a bit and made a few changes. First, we’re publishing our pickup schedule and have blocked out our own on-farm processing dates to ensure we can meet our stated delivery dates.
Last year we did not adjust our prices. However, this year we had to adjust the base prices up a smidgen to combat the rising cost of feed. The cost of feed is driven by the cost of corn, petroleum, drought, speculation, and the market’s whimsy. Our base price is $3.45 a pound, which is in line with other local pastured producers.
For chicken club members, the price increase basically splits the cost of on-farm pickup and delivery from last year. However, this year, we only have one price.
In other pricing news, we will not charge club members for cut-up. That’s included in the base price.
We’re also moving to a new bag for whole birds. It’s a shrink bag, in fact. The shrink bag will hold up better in the freezer and it will create a nicer package.

One share equals one chicken. We’ll work up an invoice and send it back to you, and we’re more than happy to do flexible payment options. A $93 deposit will hold your shares. The remaining balance will be invoiced in two equal payments on April 15 and May 15. Payment in full can be sent at any time.
Mike and Christie Badger
P.S. As a thank you for your club commitment, we’ll provide a complimentary, ready-to eat rabbit when you pick up your first share.
