    FAQ – Chicken CSA

    Is this the same quality of pasture-raised GMO-Free chicken that I've come to know and trust from Dawnbreaker Farms?
    You bet! CSA Chickens come from the same non-GMO, free range chicken you’ve come to know and expect. You’ll get a discount over everyone else because you made the commitment to buy in bulk. Way to go, you!
    What if I want to get all my pre-ordered chicken all at once?
    Most people choose to space out their pick-ups throughout the year but if you’ve got the freezer space (or having a massive party) and want to get them all at once go for it! We only ask that you please communicate with us your intentions beforehand so that we can plan accordingly.
    How much do I pay per pick up?
    ​At the time of registration you will pay a $200 deposit. After the deposit you will pay 25% of the remaining balance at each pick up. A Small CSA package will pay an estimated $36.40 per pick up, a Medium CSA package will pay an estimated $112/pick up and the Large package will pay an estimated $195.70. Please note that you are paying a per pound price and the actual weight of the chicken will vary. These prices are just estimates and will change somewhat depending on the actual chickens we have available and that you choose.
    What if I only want chicken parts like breasts and thighs and don't want whole chickens?
    That’s absolutely fine, too. The Chicken CSA probably isn’t best for you but we do have the Credibles program which may be a better fit for your needs. With Credibles you pre-pay for any of our pasture-raised GMO free products and in return you get extra bonus credits to use at the farmer’s market, buying clubs or on farm pruchases.
    What are the four Chicken CSA pick up dates?
    At this point we don’t have our processing dates scheduled. We will have everything scheduled by mid-February and will announce them as soon as we know.
    How many chickens do I get per pick up?
    At each of our four pick ups you will get 25% of your subscription’s chickens. So the small CSA will get four chickens per pick up, the Medium will get 8 chickens per pick up and the large will get 13 chickens per pick up.
    How did you calculate the total for each CSA package? Doesn't every chicken have a unique weight?
    Great question! It’s true. Every chicken weighs different. What we did is we took our average size of 4.5 lbs as the baseline. This means that the actual price at each pick up will vary depending on the size chicken that we have available and that you choose.
    I already use Credibles. Can I combine by Credibles credits with the Chicken CSA?
    No, although we want to provide you the best value and convenience we do also have to run a profitable business. If we allowed Credibles points to be used for the Chicken CSA we would be selling our chicken at a loss.
    Gosh, your farm is really farm away. Can you just bring it to market for me?
    We get it, we live out in the boonies. But no. The discount is given to members because they make the extra effort to come to the farm. Buying freshly processed chicken reduces our labor and handling costs and thus we are able to pass the savings onto you, the CSA member. If you really don’t want to drive but want to support the farm another way we suggest you participate in our Credibles program.

    How It Works:

    • Every CSA works the same – basically you pay up front for the amount of chicken you will eat for the entire year and for making that commitment to us we give you a discount.
    • A $200 deposit is due at sign up and then 25% of the remainder will be due at each of the four chicken CSA pick ups.
    • IMPORTANT*** CSA pick up dates will happen ON FARM directly after the birds are processed and packaged. They will be extremely fresh.
    • The four pick up dates are listed below in the Chicken CSA FAQ.
    • Please note that the Chicken CSA is for whole chickens only.
    • Chicken CSA discount is not to be used with Credibles or other discounts.

    FAQ – Whole/Half Hog

    How much meat can I expect?
    With a half hog you will get approximately 85 lbs of meat. For a whole hog expect approximately 170 lbs of meat.
    How much freezer space will that take?
    A half hog will take up about 3.5 cubic feet of freezer space which is roughly equivalent to the top section of a top/bottom combo fridge. A whole hog will take up about 7 cubic feet of freezer space and will require a small stand alone freezer or a section of a stand alone freezer. There are some fridge/freezer combinations that have quite large freezer compartments. We recommend finding your freezer specifications before bringing home the meat.
    What kind of cuts can I expect from a half hog?
    • 8 lbs of bacon and bacon ends
    • 12 lbs of bone in pork chops
    • 8 lbs of Boston Butt shoulder
    • 6 lbs of spare ribs
    • 40 lbs of sausage
    • 2.5 lbs of shank
    • 1.5 lbs of hocks
    • 5 lbs of neck bones
    • Odd cuts available (head, tails, heart, liver, kidney. Hey, it’s your pig and you paid for it. Might as well enjoy it from snout to tail)
    • Double the above for a whole hog
    What if I don't want to drive all the way out to pick up my meat?
    If you don’t want to drive to the farm to pick up your pork you can arrange with us to deliver the meat to a central location when and where it is convenient to us. But to avoid scheduling and improve efficiencies we really think it’s best that you come to the farm to pick up. Plus you’ll get to visit the farm and we can show you the other happy pigs while you are here!
    What kind of sausage do I get?
    You will get 40 lbs of the sausage of your choice. Pick from our inventory and mix and match to your custom specifications! Our sausage varieties include:

    • Plain Ground Pork
    • Bratwurst
    • Mild Italian Links
    • Mild Italian Bulk
    • Spicy Italian Links
    • Bulk Chorizo
    • Smoked Polish ($1.90/lb extra charge for the smoking)
    • Mild Breakfast Pinkies
    • Mild Breakfast Bulk
    • Maple Pinkies
    Plain speak - How much does pork from a half or whole hog cost?
    A half hog will cost $680 flat. With 85 lbs of meat that comes out to about $8/lb or 20% off retail prices. A half hog gets you 170 lbs of meat for $1250 at roughly $7.45/lb or 25% off our retail costs. Any way you slice it that’s a BIG savings!

    Can I customize my order?

    To a certain extent, yes. For example when you purchase a half hog you get to choose exactly what kind of sausage comes in your box. You can also choose if you want the heart, liver, head, tail and feet. Another example – if you are a big fan of sausage we can swap out some cuts so you get more sausage. But part of the joy of a bulk pork purchase is experiencing the entire pig from head to tail. If you have a custom request do please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate.
    What's so good about your pork?
    Our pigs are raised ethically, humanely and sustainably in the woods where they have free range to roam, root, wallow, play and forage. We rotate the herd regularly so that they are always on fresh land and have access to plentiful forage. We supplement our pigs with only non-gmo grain supplements. The diversity of foraged diets and inputs plus the incredible love and attention we give our pigs makes for the most flavorful and nutritious pork found anywhere. We know you’ll love our pork and our whole and half hog options. Please reserve your order here.
