Off the Farm
Winter Markets We have decided not to do a winter market this year. Eggs and frozen chicken can be picked up at the farm any time, as described under "Shopping at the Farm" in the right-hand column of this page.
Farmers' Markets We hope to be selling our organic asparagus at the Kennebunk Farmers' Market for several Saturdays in late May through mid-to-late June.
At the Farm
We typically have frozen chicken on hand to pre-order for pickup at the farm any time of year, as supplies allow. Fresh chicken is usually available May through October. Please check our Poultry page for the most up-to-date availability for specific chicken products.
Ordering Chicken To order chicken for pickup at the farm, send us an email telling us what you would like (whole birds or cuts? fresh or frozen? etc.) and which day you plan to pick up. Please make sure you receive a confirmation email before making the trip to the farm. If you're interested in specific fresh cuts, we recommend that you order several days in advance.
Picking Up Chicken If you haven't picked up at the farm before, here's how it works: we have an honor system – a fridge in the barn – that makes pickup at the farm easy and convenient. For your first visit we ask that you make an appointment so we can show you how things work. After that, you just tell us what day you'd like to pick up, and we'll have your order ready so you can stop by on that day, at whatever time is convenient for you. Please click here for directions and contact information.
Your order will be in the fridge (or freezer section for frozen chicken) in a bag with your name on it. There'll be an invoice on the fridge door and you can leave payment (check or cash) in the envelope we provide. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Buying Eggs Eggs do not need to be ordered ahead. They're available on a first-come, first-served basis, in the same refrigerator we use for the chicken. Please leave payment (check or cash, $3 per half-dozen) in the payment pouch on the fridge door.
Thank you for shopping at Chick Farm!
