IS Pastured Poultry?
Well, most importantly, it’s clean humanely
produced, environmentally-friendly poultry. From less
than 24 hours old until maturity at about 10 weeks,
the birds are handled in an ethical conscientious
manner. After 3 weeks in a warm dry “brooder
room”, the chicks are moved out ‘to pasture’.
Placed into a special 10’ x12’ hut outside,
each day this hut is moved onto fresh green growing
grass. In addition to the grass and sunshine, at all
times they have access to clean water, and certified
organic grain and grit. Therefore we call them ‘‘NO-STRESS,
What Pastured Poultry IS NOT...
Not Factory Farmed - Our chicks are raised without
hormones, antibiotics, steroids, additives, fecal
air or ammonia contamination. They are also not de-beaked
or confined to tiny cages . Unfortunately these things
do occur with ’mass production’ farming.
Not Free Range - Ever noticed the ground where ‘free
chickens’ range? Our chicks are free within
their hut, but their pasture never becomes scratched
dirt with little nutrition and drenched with chicken
droppings - because it is fresh grass each day. The
Pastured poultry method has the added benefit iof
allowing the pasture to regenerate ecologically.
