Jim, the truck driver unloads the supplies.

Under a sweltering sun in a parking lot in front of the Rose Bowl, me (left – in the homemade crohet hippie hat ) and fellow co-opers wait for the rest of our orders

On the pick up list this month for us urban homesteaders are:

100 lbs Organic Chicken Feed
50 lbs Animal Kelp
Seventh Generation Toilet Paper 48 count
1 Gal Olive oil (for soapmaking)
10 lbs organic raw cheese
10 lbs unbleached flour
7 lbs of organic raw sugar

Getting bulk goods for the urban homestead is such a fun experience – with a garden and a monthly pick up for supplies who needs grocery stores anyhow? Today, a guy who bought chickens from Jordanne last year informed me that they are doing exceptionally well. He happily reported that they were very healthy and friendly (must have been the apple cider vinegar water fed to them as baby chicks). Always great to hear back from folks who are truly loving their gals.

This month’s pick up everyone went away happy – all grain and chicken feed orders were supplied.

    I’m hoping that chickens will be one of my nextt (soon) steps. What brand of chicken feed do you use? I want to make sure I can find good sources of what I need before I get the girls. Thanks for all you do and share!

    I love your website. Your family is a true inspiration. I currently am growing an organic garden to feed me, my daughter and my other family/friends. I also have 6 one month old chickens. I was curious. Why did you give them the apple cider vinegar water and from what age to what that you gave it to them.
