Caroline and Brendan are so excited to sell chickens for the 2022 season! We're happy to have partnered with Dan and Emily Trubey-Weller at Barn Swallow Farm to bring locally pasture-raised chickens to the South Bend area. A big thank you to the customers that bought us out last year. We're excited to do it again! Send us a message if you have any questions about our product, or if you want to order chicken.

Most Saturdays we sell chicken at the Portage Farm Stands in the Near Northwest Neighborhood of South Bend from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. The market is across the street from The Local Cup. The market runs June through October.

Brendan's chicken recipe now given out during purchase!

Brendan developed the recipe himself. We think it's so good, that we printed it on recipe cards.

We've really enjoyed the Saturday market!

Every Saturday we went to the Near Northwest Neighborhood in South Bend for their morning market.

Batch #2 turned out great!

We timed it just right, so the chickens were an ideal weight!

Processing batch #2

We processed chickens during the 2021 season ourselves.
