Connie's Cornucopia:  Chickens Whole In Stock


Pasture Raised Chicken
We raise our chicken a little different than most conventional producers. Fresh grass, insects, spring water, plus a non-GMO and soy free supplemental ration is what gives our birds a healthy advantage. Fresh air and sunlight plus plenty of room to be a chicken combined with daily moves to fresh, well rested pasture allow us to raise drug, chemical, and antibiotic free chicken.

Martin's Farmstand:  U-pick strawberries this evening starting a@ 5 PM(Monday June 10)


We are opening for the second u-pick picking of the season this evening (Monday June 10, 2024) starting at 5 pm. Picking conditions in the early kinds look really good for tonight.

Hours for u-pick are Monday starting at 5 PM; Wednesday, starting 2 PM (no morning picking on Monday’s and Wednesdays); Saturday, starting 7 AM. This repeats through out the whole season. The patch closes when the berries are all picked or at 8 pm on Monday and 6 PM on Wednesday and Saturday.
When you arrive you do not need to stop at the stand to weigh your containers if you know the empty weight already. Also you do not need to stop if you are picking into standard Quart containers.
You have the option of bringing your own containers or buying empties from us. Quart boxes 25 cents each. If you are buying empty containers from us please pay when you get them rather than after you are done picking to minimize confusion as to what is going on.
NO DOGS in the field or stand areas. We will be using the same random picking pattern that we did last year. This means that you may start anyplace you wish in the patches that are open as long as you are not cutting in front of someone. It is mandatory that when you are picking that all the ripe berries are picked as you move No roaming or grazing type picking. A section of row must either be picked or not picked when you leave. We will be scouting the patch and keep suggesting where you will find good picking.
Pricing u-pick: $5 per Quart if less than 8 quarts and $3.40 per quart if more than 8 quarts; $27.20 for an 8 quart tray. All containers are expected to well filled but not heaped. We will adjust prices up or down as needed for over or under-filled containers. By the pound price is $2.30/# (limited to bigger containers or larger amounts). If you pay by credit card there is a 3% surcharge added to the above prices and you will need to use the inside checkout station rather than outside express options. Daniel
