The Pasturage of Montague
2-4-6-8, who do we appreciate!? Sweetwater! Summer! Chicken! For Saturday, 6/8, we will have chicken available for sale! They are Freedom Rangers with red feathers and a slower grow-out than the white Cornish cross. They are raised on pasture with certified organic grain. We are sending them to a USDA slaughterhouse and we will have wholes and cuts. Check out our online pre-order form for the details: https://thepasturage.com/order/  Also, a friendly heads up that in a year, spring of 2025, we will discontinue the use of plastic bags. Even though we save and reuse them, we want to phase out plastic as much as possible. We encourage you to bring a bag of your own. We will have paper bags in case you forget and for pre-orders.
Thank you!
