We believe that animals should be raised in a way that mimics nature and ALWAYS treated with the utmost respect and care.
Our slow growing heritage breed chickens are raised in their natural habitat - the fields. Our chickens peck at plants and scratch at the ground in search of whatever foods they are craving.
Our chickens have free access to wholesome and nutritious food.
In addition to what they forage for, we supplement with a specially formulated certified organic mix of field peas, oats, alfalfa, kelp, probiotics, vitamins, minerals, and Redmond Sea Salt.
This is truly pasture raised chicken!!
When you raise healthy animals in a way that mimics nature, you create the most nutrient dense foods! We let our chickens be chickens - they're free to peck and scratch in the fields during the day while safely roosting at night. We encourage this instinctual behavior. Happy animals that live in a low stress environment create delicious, healthy food.
Why do we raise chickens this way?
Chickens are meant to live their lives outside, growing slowly. These are not the lazy modern industrial chickens engineered to gain weight so rapidly that their legs crush beneath them - instead, these are heritage breed birds that grow much more slowly and are perfectly suited for living a life on pasture. We raise our chickens on our lush green fields, moving them to fresh ground twice a day. Our birds actively forage for bugs, worms, and a full salad bar of plants and grasses including clover and dandelion. This high foraging content of their diet makes their meat extra high in CLA and Omega-3's. It is very typical for the fat to have a yellow hue, as this is a direct result of beta-carotene in the plants. Just like with our beef, pork and lamb, it takes MUCH longer to raise chickens this way and costs significantly more, but to us it's worth it. Here on our farm, it takes us double the amount of time compared to the commercial poultry industry to raise our birds, requiring us more than 3 to 4 months of grazing time out in the fields. This is not the bland, flavorless grocery store chicken. This is real chicken with FLAVOR and TEXTURE! We've had many customers tell us this is the best chicken they've ever tasted and we couldn't agree more. We're convinced you'll feel the same way too.
