Goat cheese, Chevre
Our goat cheese is a mild-flavoured, spreadable, probiotic, and versatile cheese. The cheese is made using only natural cultures and is completely raw, as it is never heated at all during the cheese-making process. The goats have an amazing life on the farm, where they spend 4 hours a day grazing in the mountains. As a supplement, get a portion of whole local Mayan corn and mixed minerals each morning and evening. The goats never receive any antibiotics or chemical additives.The cheese is super high-quality and also contains no additives or preservatives. Use this cheese in any number of creative ways, as its mild flavour allows its use in a wide range of dishes.
PRICE: Q50 per pound
Our hens live on deep composting bedding that is sometimes up to a meter deep or more! This hot compost is a super rich and diverse ecosystem that chickens just love to get all up in. While the hens also have access to various free range yards, they actually seem to prefer the composting bedding inside their amazing composting chicken palace. They get a mix of probiotics and minerals added to their antibiotic free pre-mixed hen feed. The ens are released from one day old on our farm and at 6 months old, begin laying super high-quality eggs with bright orange yokes. Top-quality!
PRICE: Q50 tabla of 30 eggs
Our chickens are raised from one day old, and during the first three weeks, we provide supplemental heating and extra special care. After 3 weeks, the chickens are moved to free range areas where they eat greens and bugs and enjoy the farm to the fullest. In addition to their ranging and foraging, they also receive a controlled ration of pre-mixed chick feed, to which, we add several minerals and probiotics. Their feed and lifestyle is completely chemical and antibiotic free. The chickens are harvested humanely on the farm and we pack them as whole or half birds, all cleaned and ready to cook. In separate bags we include the plucked head, cleaned feet, and all edible organs, which are great for soups, stocks, or animal feed. If you do not want these items, just specify that in your order. In my honest opinion, I believe this is the best chicken that can be found on the lake.
PRICE: Q20 per pound, whole birds are usually 3-4 pounds
