Lake Co-op Manager Robyn Bera announced that they will begin offering organic-raised whole chicken fryers from local farmer, Red Neck Chickens, beginning June 29.
Co-op Offers Locally Raised Chicken
LAKEPORT, Calif.>>The fryers will be available through Lake Co-op’s weekly online ordering Web site at www.lake.coop .
Red Neck Chickens of Kelseyville are offering the Transylvania Naked Neck breed chicken that are known for their “superior meat texture and very thin skin which crisps to perfection when roasted, smoked, or barbecued,” said owner/farmer Ken Bouche.
“We look forward to offering more delivery options soon, but for now they’re only available in Lakeport and through home delivery. This is to ensure the smoothest and safest process for our customers,” explained Bera.
Lake Co-op has 12 easily accessible pick up points around Lake County, offers home/office delivery for a small fee and also has a “pop up” store with overage and other local delectables in downtown Lakeport at the Lake Made store next to Watershed Books, at 307 N. Main St., on Thursdays from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
“It’s never been easier to get locally grown and produced organic products. We’re expanding our product line all the time,” Bera said. “Our model supports everyone – our producers, customers and owners. And it keeps our dollars more local.”
