The picture below is just baffling to me. Our roommates went to the store and bought meat (left side of the picture), we went to Hickory Grove Farms in Colchester and bought our locally grown farm raised meat (right side of the picture). There is a $2 price difference in the 2 bundles. Can you guess which one was $2 more? ๐Ÿคฏ

I wanted to provide a little more information on what you would be getting. We offer a preorder for chicken. You pay now; we order the chickens, raise them, and butcher/process. At that point, we will freeze the whole chicken and coordinate pick up or drop off of your preordered bird. Currently, we are only offering whole chickens. In the fall when we do this again, we will consider other options.

Let us know if you would like a whole chicken so we can order enough! ๐Ÿ˜‹

Hey everyone! We are looking to put in an order for chicks ๐Ÿฃ again. If anyone would like to reserve chickens๐Ÿ” for your table, please comment on his post so we can make sure we order enough.

The goal is to have the chicks by April, which would put the birds ๐Ÿ” on your table by the month of June.

Last year the birds averaged a take-home weight of 5.5 lb. Our price per lb is $3.

I would say our garden boxes worked in our favor this year! Anyone need any cherry tomatoes, roma tomatoes, garden salsa peppers, yellow squash, zucchini, or cucumbers? Yes the cucumbers and zucchini are a bit large, but should work for pickle spears(cucumbers)/baking(zucchini)!

โ€ผ๏ธUpdateโ€ผ๏ธwe have decided to offer full board as an option. Pm if interested or if you would like more details. ๐Ÿ™‚

River Bottom Ranch is now offering Partial or Self Care Boarding for horses! We are also offering use of our horse training grounds for anyone needing a place to work their horse. Message us for more details!

Partial Board includes horses being fed morning and night. We will supply hay. You are responsible for cleaning your horse's stall at least twice a week. RBR will not supply grain or shavings.

We have 6 stalls available. Turnouts are available to 3 small grass pastures (weather permitting).

We offer a 60โ€™ x 120โ€™ indoor arena, a 180โ€™ diameter outdoor arena, 5 acre training ground with multiple obstacles, and a tack room with saddle racks.

We are a very laid back facility and would like for every person and horse to feel at home. We are not able to use the facilities currently and would like to see them in use.

Please message to set up an appointment to come check us out!

Located outside of Canton, IL.

๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”Hey, y'all! Just want to remind everyone that our chickens will be here the last week of April. We are going to have a total of 50 chickens. 30 CSA options and the rest will be wholesale. The CSA birds will be cheaper than the wholesale birds, so don't miss your opportunity!
If not all 30 CSA birds sell by the end of the 8 week growing cycle for this batch, the remaining will be sold wholesale.

***If you have any questions on price, CSA, or how we raise our birds do not hesitate to PM us! We are very transparent with our new operation and glad to answer any questions.***

Labels and Loopholes - Humane Facts

humanefacts.org/labels-loopholes/

This article is a great read for anyone that wants a better understanding as to why the animals that you get from a local farm that are pasture-raised/grass-fed are usually substantially higher priced than the "Organic" meat in the store.

Look into your food! Ask your farmers how they raise their animals and see if you can take a tour of their farms!

If you go to a farm website for the meat you find in a store and there are no pictures of their operation, but only pictures of grass and maybe a close up of a chicken; then maybe they aren't really what they seem. ๐Ÿค”

Again, look into your food and buy from your local farmers!

Many cruelties - all legal - can occur with meat, dairy, and eggs labeled as "humane," "organic", "welfare certified," etc.

KNA - River Bottom Ranch

Alright everyone! We are going to make a big leap into a realm we have yet to try on the ranch. Chickens!
Yes, pastured chickens. We like the thought of raising chickens for ourselves and for anyone willing to purchase one or more from us.
This is a short notice for the first batch. We would like to be purchasing our chicks no later than the end of the first week of April.
We would also like to utilize a CSA style marketing strategy for y'all. If you are unsure what a CSA is we will gladly explain.
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.
We will offer a certain amount of whole chickens for you to pre-purchase. Said amount of chickens will be purchased, raised, and processed through River Bottom Ranch. The chickens will be processed at a USDA inspected site. Once that is completed the processed whole chicken will be available for pick up!
For our first batch we will be starting somewhat small, most likely around 30 - 40 available CSA chickens. If we happen to sell out and you weren't able to lay claim to your chickens, NO WORRIES! We will have a second batch starting the following month.
Leave a comment or PM if you're interested and for details. Thanks y'all !!!

Yesterday marked day 7 of Harpers training. Saddle was introduced along with a small dose of riding with halter and reins, no bit. She had a few quirks, but shortly after took to it with no issues.
We can't say enough great things about this mare.
