Stewing Hens

We offer stewing hens, raised on organic pasture and fed organically their entire lives. They are processed in a licensed facility and delivered to market frozen. They weigh 2.5 to 4 pounds each. These hens were 21 months old at the time of processing and require several hours of stewing to soften up. They are not as tender as roasters (which are commonly killed at six weeks old). However, they are much more flavorful and nutrient-rich than roasters. They are preferred for a much more flavorful stock.

We sell stewing hens for $20.00/hen but if you order 10 or more they are $16.00 each.  Pre-order at market (see below for more details), or at 541-451-5640, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

  • Update for 2019

Persephone Farm regrets that we are unable to attend the Salem Saturday Market in 2019, for reasons of family health concerns. We will sincerely miss all of our friends in Salem who have supported Persephone for 20 years, and we hope to keep in touch in other ways.  Some Persephone Farm produce will be available in Salem at Lifesource Natural Foods in 2019. We look forward to serving you with the help of all the good people at Lifesource, located at 2649 Commercial St. SE.
