What Our Chickens Mean to Us

Fisher Hill Farm Chickens

We raise chickens. The eggs are sold regularly at market and so are the chickens. We get a lot of questions about it from our customers, friends, and from interested folks at the markets we attend. A locally sourced chicken means a lot to our customer base, including the chefs and restaurants that have put a strong focus on finding ingredients that are close to home.

We use locally milled small batch feed for our chickens. They do not receive antibiotics or hormones and grow as naturally as possible. The feed is also non GMO. In short, we love our chickens and raise them that way. Our farm is our means of raising our kids, including eating our own food that we grow. We would never sell anything that we wouldn’t eat ourselves or serve to our friends and family, including our three beautiful girls!

Throughout the summer, we will have fresh chicken at the markets we attend. Fresh chicken tastes awesome and because it is only coming from our farm in Bristol, NY, our carbon footprint is small.

We put a high priority on our animal welfare. Everything we do on our farm is meant to treat our product and the earth as best as we possibly can. Without the earth we wouldn’t have all the great produce and poultry and we firmly believe that each of our animals deserves the utmost respect and dignity. They, after all, are part of our every day livelihood.

The basic business model to our farm is a simple one: Serve our community with food that we would serve our family. In a way, every one of our customers are our family. Keeping this in mind every day helps us to bring you the best, freshest, and admirably raised produce and poultry as possible.

Thank you for your business.

The CSA with Choice!

Fisher Hill Farmers Market

Fresh from the farm produce, poultry, and eggs for a fraction of the price at a grocery store. CSA’s are one of the best ways to not only fill your cupboards and refrigerator but also connect with your community and local farmers, like us!

We want you to get the most out of our CSA and so every month when you come to pick it up, we allow you to pick what you and your family are most likely to eat. Plus, every month a new crop comes in so it changes all the time and the variety is the absolute best part.

For a list of our crop availability every month so you know what to expect, visit our our CSA page here.

We want you to get the most out of your CSA and we don’t want to see you get something that you don’t like or won’t eat. Getting your CSA is a commitment and we always think that’s why people shy away from it. “How am I going to know what I want three months from now!” is a common response. We understand and that’s why we want to give you choice.

CSA’s are relatively new to the world. They were invented in Japan in 1965 and were called “teikei” or translated to “food with a farmer’s face”. The phenomenon didn’t reach the US until 1984 but wasn’t made popular until 1991 when Roxbury Farm started distributing at the Union Square Greenmarket. They are now common throughout the US and all of North America.

CSA’s Now Available

If you’ve never done a CSA before it can be a little intimidating. Many people think that a CSA will give them more food that they can eat and they don’t want to be wasteful or they think that the upfront price is too expensive for what they end up getting.

We strive to break these common myths and assist you in getting what you want. Our CSA is one with choice and there are different options that will help you get exactly what you are looking for.

Beyond that, we’ve created an online store so you can browse the options and pay by card as well. We love what we do and we want to bring that to you!
