Broiler Chickens

$4/lb, average 5-7 lbs              $5 deposit each x (# of birds)= ______________

“Delicious, juicy, unbelievable, so tender, best I’ve ever had, like real chicken should taste….” these are all things we’ve heard about our Broilers. We eat at least 1 every week, year round. Each bird provides many meals and then delicious bone broth after that! They are a delight to raise and see running all around, living a good chicken life as they should all. You can truly taste it.

Feet $4/lb, hearts $6/lb, liver $4/lb Gizzards (cleaned) $3/lb Note any you’d like:________________________

Dates are : (please circle which you’d like)   6/2     6/30    7/28     8/25     9/29

 

Duck

$7/lb, average 5-7lbs             $5 deposit each x (# of ducks)=___________________

We’re raising Pekin Ducks for meat for the first time this year. They’ll be raised with our chickens, outside on grass with a varied diet, living the good life. They cost a bit more to feed and are much, much more difficult to pluck so you’ll see the price is higher than for chicken. Duck is decadent and a much more intense all-dark meat. It’s exquisite.

Feet $6/lb, hearts $6/lb, liver $8/lb Gizzard pieces $3/lb Note any you’d like:_____________________

Dates are : (please circle which you’d like)   6/2     6/30    7/28     8/25     9/29

 

Turkey

$5/lb, average 15-20lb_________ $20 deposit per bird                Thanksgiving or December Holiday

If every year you have a dry and bland turkey, or one that needs a lot of help to be edible, then you should treat yourself to a REAL turkey for the holidays! These pasture-raised turkeys are incredible, so flavorful, and juicy as can be. They’ll be raised outdoors on pasture, with an all-natural diet like our chickens and ducks, hand harvested on the farm the weekend before Thanksgiving, so they will be fresh for your Thanksgiving dinner. Comes with giblets. We will offer frozen turkeys for December holiday meals, reservation process and price is the same.

Mail your deposit check and this form to LTD Farm, our address is 454 4-½ Ave Clayton, WI 54004 (NE from Reeve, about 3 miles.) Mark your calendars for the pick up dates you’ve chosen, we’ll be in touch when we get your deposit and then the week or 2 before pickup to confirm all details.

    hello, this is a second attempt to reach you to see if you would be interested in coming to a gathering I have organized: The Great Back to Nature Exchange in Somerset, Wi. I am particularly interested in a Permaculture presentation of some kind to last 30 min-1hour. Please let me know if you might be interested. I have already made posters but could add you in anyway... Thanks, Kelley

    Hello Kelley - Thanks for your offer, yes I would be interested in presenting at your event - what is the date of this event and what topics would you be interested in? I would recommend something along the lines of "Holistic Livestock on a Small Farm" because raising and utilizing animals on the land is the heart of our farming operation and and our passion. Please send me any details you can to farmers @ ltdfarm.com. Thank you! -A

    I raise Blue Slate turkeys on my 5 1/2 acre ranch. I have 22, with 8 Tom's. I have them in two large pens. My chickens are free range and would like to have my Turkey's free range too. I would like to know what kind of fencing you have around your property to keep them in? I have a six strand barbwire fence. My chickens never go beyond it. There are several groups of wild turkeys round. Do i need to worry about them? Thank you. Kent Shultz, Shultz's Rocking Chair Ranch.

    very good questions, never had much luck keeping turkey breeding stock, mine ran off with wild turkeys, so- yes watch out for that! I use electronet for pastured birds, but if they are heritage turkeys, they will often be able to fly over the net. Turkeys tend to have a much larger range than chickens do, so try letting them out when you are home and see how they do. Daytime predators can be a issue- fox, bear, big cats, coyotes even, as well as roads. I don't have a good resource to direct you to other than this Chenowith (not sure the first name right now, Henry?) book I found online and bought about setting up and raising range turkeys, although even he was doing broad breasted birds. Another idea would be to do field fence all around your acreage and keep a Pyrenees dog as their protector, something I have thought about doing but 39 acres is a lot to fence! All the best to you

    Hello, I am going to be doing a science project where I incubate duck eggs and raise the ducklings until a proper age. I was just wondering if you'd be able to take the ducks once they are a little older and provide them with a loving home? You can get a hold of me with the email listed down below. Thanks, Abby
