Over 21 years ago, Jude married Mayra from the Dominican Republic. At the time, Jude had horses and occasionally raised beef for personal use. Mayra was never a big beef and pork eater since the primary livestock in the Dominican Republic is chicken, but she hated the quality of poultry that was available in the general grocery store. He told her that he could raise some chickens for her, just like those from the Dominican Republic. That is where the whole story of Chartier Farms really started.
Today, the chickens of Chartier Farms roam the meadows and woods around the barn each day, eating bugs, seeds, fruits, and whatever else they enjoy! Needless to say, the chickens are cage free and humanely raised. Chartier Farms offers many products including all cuts of chicken, chicken burgers, chicken pizzas, smoked items, and chicken sausage.
Items may be ordered for Friday home delivery, or picked up at the Rose Garden Farmer's Market on 8th Ave in Bethlehem, or picked up directly at the farm in Bath, PA. Delivery areas include Bucks, Lehigh, Northampton, and Monroe Counties in PA, and Somerset, Middlesex, and Warren Counties in NJ.
