What is pastured poultry?
Pastured poultry embodies outdoor production on green vegetated pastures and frequent movement of the birds to fresh pasture. The two components - living on green pasture AND frequent movement - are integral to what pastured poultry is. We say that fresh air, adequate living space, and sunshine are the ingredients for happy and healthy poultry. The health benefits to the poultry are passed directly to you the consumer.
For some great information on this subject visit The American Pastured Poultry Producers Association’s consumer guide. You can also view our blog post on different and sometimes confusing labels used for poultry.
Where can I purchase your products?
Both our pastured poultry and our honey can be picked up directly from our farm. Please contact us to make a purchase and to arrange pick-up.
Will my chicken/turkey come with feathers on?
No! This is probably the most common question we get. Our poultry come packaged ready to cook. Other than thawing out if frozen, you don’t need to do anything other than find a delicious recipe.
Are your chickens and turkeys frozen?
Typically we freeze our chickens, and turkeys are picked up fresh. We butcher all of our poultry here on the farm, so we have the ability to work with each customer on this. Some customers like to pick their chickens up prior to freezing. Some of our customers like their turkeys frozen, as they keep them in the freezer to eat throughout the upcoming year, not just at Thanksgiving.
