Kirsop Farm has been providing Thurston County residents with quality produce since 1996. We began raising chickens with the same loving care in 2007 for our own family and now we are ready to share them with you. We raise our chickens on pasture where they forage for insects and grass. We move their shelters every day to ensure a clean living situation and an appropriate application of fertilizer to the land. We supplement their foraging with grain produced by a small organic feed mill in British Columbia. We use the shelters to protect the chickens from predators, and to protect the rest of our vegetables from the chickens. The chicken pasture is dedicated for the season and vegetable crops will not be planted there until the following year, making use of the fertility provided by the chickens in a safe and timely manner.
We process the birds on farm using low-stress methods learned form our friends Nate and Melissa at Homegrown Pastured Poultry. The birds are available for customers the same day to ensure quality and freshness. Because we will be selling each bird directly we have decided not to use the WSDA organic certification program at this time.
Pick up time is between 5-7PM on harvest day only.
