Our Chickens

Pasture-raised chickens lead a more natural lifestyle than most commercial layers. Instead of living in cages, pastured hens range in the field, contained by portable electric poultry netting or wire fencing that keeps them safe from predators, with a portable henhouse that provides roosts and nest boxes.  The portable henhouse with a wire floor can be moved daily to provide the pasture with natural fertilizer overnight.

Chicken broilers are raised in predator-safe coops that move to fresh pasture daily, keeping poultry safe from hawks and parasites.
