We raise chickens using a true pastured model. Our birds spend their first 3 weeks of life in a climate controlled brooder (built in the 60's and refurbished last year), with deep bedding kept fresh and clean, and fed our own blend of chick starter feed using corn grown on the farm. After that they move out to our fleet of 6 pasture shelters, floorless shade/rain protection structures. These shelters are moved every day, giving birds access to fresh pasture and their favorite food, fresh clover and bugs. In the fall we also raise a small batch of turkeys using the same process timed so that we can deliver whole turkeys, fresh (never frozen) to our customers the week of thanksgiving.
