Taking “pastured poultry” to the next level with Non-GMO feed
We take pride in growing an excellent chicken. This starts with growing a breed of chicken with a well balanced body that develop into an excellent meat bird. No antibiotics, vaccinations or growth stimulants are ever given to our chickens. And most of their life is lived like a chicken should, on verdant pasture, doing what chickens do.
How it’s done
The birds are raised following a pastured poultry method used by many organic operations and featured on Purdue Agriculture’s Small Farms site. This method involves day old hatchlings spending their first few weeks in a brooder until they it’s safe for them to live outside. Next they are housed in a portable home, called a Tractor, that is moved daily across green pasture. The Tractor is open air providing plenty of fresh air, sunshine, and shade.
Daily moving, or ‘Tractoring’, allows the chickens to forage for their food, up to 15%, eating fresh pasture grass and bugs. Non-GMO feed mixed with organic minerals and supplements provides the balance of their diet.
At maturity, care continues as the birds are humanely processed by hand and packaged at a local Amish family who run an Indiana state inspected facility. These birds and those who will enjoy them deserve the best.
