Shopping Local for Chicken in the Shenandoah Valley

75 pounds of local chicken

75 pounds of local chicken

My freezer is the new home of 75 pounds of locally grown pasture-raised chicken. As I’ve shared, I have a lot of issues when it comes to eating meat, but I don’t feel bad when I buy chicken from J & L Green Farm. Their chickens live a pretty darn good life, and as we drove the 5 or so miles to the farm, we passed fields of frolicking lambs and grazing cattle.

If you live in or near the Shenandoah Valley, you should check out their Facebook page, where they have a link to their bulk ordering form. I should also mention their eggs are great and are well priced! I’m also looking forward to our beef bulk order in May.

    I love J & L Green Farm! I’ve met up with them at the farmers’ market, but never made it out to their farm. We need to put that on our list of things to do one weekend.

    • Penny, I first tried their pulled pork at Shenandoah Uncorked in 2010, I think. When I found out they sold their meat through The Farmhouse and then at the Harrisonburg Farmer’s Market, I was so happy! We buy almost all of our meat through them now. (Granted, I don’t eat a lot of meat, so that’s not too much.) Their breakfast sausage is so good and so lean! I’m hoping we can can up some of the chicken when I get a good weekend off and then buy another bundle :-) I haven’t done the farm tour yet, but hope to this year!
