Processing our first batch tomorrow!

 Pastured Poultry: What is it?

Pasture-raised chicken, turkey, and other birds are rotationally grazed on grass pastures, not simply allowed freedom to roam in a dirt yard.  Birds are confined within a shelter and/or a fence to protect them from predators and the elements.  Shelters and fences are moved periodically.   The manure is left behind to renew the soil.  This method of raising animals promotes the health of the animals and the land.   In winter, when grass is not growing, animals are housed on deep litter. 

Pastured Chicken – “Broilers”

We raise the industry standard Cornish-Rock cross chicken.  In 2014 we will be feeding NON-GMO feed by Sunrise Farms. You asked for it, you got it!
Our birds are raised in small quantities on fresh pasture.  We believe that this is the key to healthy, delicious chicken!
