Stewing Hens

Announcing a new product available from Persephone beginning in December, 2014 - 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 - 4 lbs. 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 $15.00 each.  Pre-order at market (see below for more details), or at 541-451-5640, 8 am - 5 pm, Monday through Friday.
