At Avid Farms we focus on pasture-raised chicken and turkey. Our core principles are animal welfare and environmental stewardship. Our birds are raised on conventional non-organic feed to help keep prices low, but we do not use any synthetic medicines of any kind. The animals we raise enjoy a very high quality of life and are slaughtered right on the farm in a humane and sanitary manner. Organic-fed chickens will be available in 2016 along with our usual broilers, and we plan to begin offering lamb soon.
Whole roaster chickens between 5.5 and 6.5 pounds, shrink wrapped and fresh frozen.
$4.50 poundWhole turkeys are available for Thanksgiving by advance reservation.
What is HCW?
Hot carcas weight (HCW) is the weight taken immediately after slaughter, but before final trim. With beef for example, HCW is approximately 60% of live weight.
