About Our Flocks
Chickens, Ducks, Thanksgiving Turkeys, and Farm Fresh Eggs
We believe that poultry should be raised the way nature intended: outside and eating a varied, nutritious diet. Our birds spend their first few weeks of life in a brooder. This gives them a warm and safe place to grow into their adult feathers. As soon as those feathers come in, the birds are ready to go outside to their portable coops with open floors. This protects them from predators while allowing them access to bugs, grubs and grass. They have shelter in their coop to get out of the rain, wind and sun if they choose. Otherwise, on a nice day, you can see them enjoying the sunshine as they scratch at the ground.
We supplement what they find in the pasture with GMO free grain from a local grain company. They have constant access to clean water.
We use intensive rotational grazing to keep our soil and grass healthy. Our flocks follow behind the sheep, goats and pigs. The larger animals eat most of the grass, which exposes bugs and insects for the birds. This system allows the animals to work together to promote health in their own diets and our fields.
