Pastured Poultry

What sets our chicken apart from conventional chicken? The answer: grass. While this is not the only thing that sets our poultry products apart, it is by far the most significant. So what difference does this make? Everything. Raising chickens on pasture is the most significant way to increase the nutritional density and taste quality of a poultry product. Our meat chickens are moved, in a bottomless pen, to fresh grass daily from the time they are 3 weeks old until they go to market, so to speak. This simple act creates a world of difference in the end product, as well as the health of the growing bird.

Compared to a human's diet, grass performs the same function to a chicken as fruits and vegetables do for you and I. They keep us healthy and provide us with crucial vitamins and minerals. The benefits of sunshine and fresh air also work their miracles with our birds. Unfortunately, birds grown in confinement operations do not get these same luxuries. By putting the effort into providing fresh pasture to our birds, we are able to raise birds that are plump, clean, and healthy.

In the end, all of the extra work put into our products pays off for you, the consumer. How? Well, to start, our products are healthier. Our broilers contain fewer calories, less fat and saturated fat, higher levels of vitamins and minerals, and significantly higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids. Plus, you don't have to worry about feeding your family anything you wouldn't eat yourself. This is all without mentioning the great taste. We have received compliments that our chicken is the best customers have ever had. These kinds of compliments are very greatly appreciated and make our hard work worth it.
