Pastured chicken is available through our monthly meat CSA.
What’s so great about pastured poultry?
Pastured poultry tastes better and is better for you. Here’s why…
Most commercially raised chickens, even those marked “organic” or “free range”,
are raised completely indoors with thousands of other chickens. They rarely or never see the sun, breathe fresh air, or touch a blade of grass.
In contrast, our pastured birds are out on pasture every day! They hunt and peck for bugs, eat grass and weeds, and enjoy fresh air and sunshine.
We keep our pastured chickens safe in a “chicken tractor”, or mobile shelter. Twice every day, the tractor is pulled to fresh grass. This keeps their quarters clean while providing access to new grass and new bugs, as well as sunshine and fresh air.
Our chickens also receive local, non-GMO feed that is tested to be free of pesticides and herbicides, including glyphosate.
