Behind the cows come the chickens. We house them in open bottom shelters. Within these shelters, the chickens have constant access to fresh grass, bugs
Our birds have free access to soy free non-GMO feed. But they also gather a considerable part of their diet from forage and insects. We move their shelters to fresh grass daily, allowing the birds to explore a new piece of pasture. This also gives them a fresh bed of grass each night.
Compare this to how industrial poultry is raised, where birds are confined, tightly packed and never see the light of day. Beyond that, industrial birds are fed antibiotic-laced feed and require vaccinations–just to survive.
We believe there is a much better way, for the birds and for us. We process our chickens on

Our farm also offers chicken in bulk multiple times throughout the year. We offer a nice discount on these chickens, as they don’t take up storage space on our end, as you are picking the chicken soon after it is processed. You get to select the day you want to pick up your chicken from our available dates. We also offer an even deeper discount when you order 12 or more chickens at a time.
Pre-ordered Chicken: $5.49/lb. Order 12 or more chickens and your price will be $4.99/lb.
We at times also offer stewing hens, which are laying hens that have done their time. They are of course much more lean than a meat chicken, but are full of rich yellow fat, which makes them great for soups and bone broths. You can check on their availability here.
