TURKEY ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS
Turkeys are by preorder this year as usual. Due to cancellations and disappointed customers who weren’t able to receive a turkey last year because of those last minute cancellations, a non-refundable $30.00 deposit per bird is required. The deposit will be deducted from the cost of your bird when you pick it up.
The weight range is from 15 lbs. and up. Those who want a huge bird (over 25 lbs.), need to reserve it now since it takes longer for the birds to reach those weights. We don’t harvest birds less than 15 lbs. because most have not matured and much of the weight is bone and feathers, etc. Also, the larger birds are almost always toms. Price per pound is $6.00. Giblets included.

(Fill in the blanks at the bottom and return with your deposit check of $30. per turkey)
This season we will start bringing frozen turkey orders to both the Haile and 441 markets beginning on Saturday October 7th, then each Saturday until November 18rd. If you have freezer space, we strongly advise you to get your turkey as early as possible as there is always a mad rush the closer to the holiday we get. You may order and pick up turkeys before Oct.7th without a deposit or a reservation by sending us an email telling us the approx. weight you’d like and the market you shop at. Since we harvest on Mondays, we need your order prior to Monday of that week to receive it on the following Saturday

Welcome to Laughing Chicken Farm!
We are a small, family-owned farm in North Central Florida that raises pasture-based meats.
Bill and Robin Popp
ABOUT OUR LABELS: From time to time we get the question about the "not for human consumption" label.
We Live Here, We Grow Here, We Sell Here
Laughing Chicken Farm grows and sells its products locally. Our vision is to raise happy livestock the way God intended: with fresh grass, natural grains and minerals, and lots of sunshine. We give our animals the best so they can give us the best.
Our family-owned, full-time farm has been in operation since 2009, and we are proud to serve our community with a great source of pasture-based meats and eggs.
Our products are sold at the Alachua County Farmer's Market in north Gainesville and also at the Haile Village Center at Haile Plantation in southwest Gainesville.
Visit Our Products page for more information, pricing, and market directions.
EGGS: We do not wash, refrigerate or grade our eggs. Since they are sold in this state, we are required by law to label them this way. It is a labeling issue. A note here...the United States is one of a handful of countries that require eggs to be washed. The rest of the world doesn't require this.
MEAT PRODUCTS: All of our animals are humanely and ethically harvested and processed on our farm and not in a USDA inspected facility. We sell directly to the consumer. According to the USDA, there has never been an instance of food borne illness resulting from a farm to consumer product since records have been kept. This also a Labeling issue.

We currently hold a Florida Dept. of Agriculture Master Feed Distributor License (#1533).
