Poultry

All our poultry is raised outdoors during the grass growing season.

The broiler (meat) chickens are placed outside in predator protective shelters in our pastures at about 3 weeks of age, and are moved to fresh grass daily. They remain on pasture for the next 5 to 6 weeks before they are sent to the processor. We only raise one batch of broilers during the summer season.

Laying hens are kept on the farm year round. They spend the late spring/summer in the pastures with a mobile hen house for shelter and to lay their eggs in. They run free in an electric netting fenced yard chasing bugs, eating forage, dust bathing, and being happy hens. The shelter, fenced area, and hens are moved to fresh pasture whenever the forage has been used up. When it becomes too cool, and the days become too short, they are moved into the barn for the fall and winter. They have lots of room to roam, hen boxes to lay their eggs, a roost to jump up on to rest. Their bedding is wood chips which are replaced when needed. They have free access to water, all-vegetable soy-free grain, and oyster shell calcium supplement. We also give them vegetable scraps from our home to give them fresh food.

Turkeys are also raised only during the summer season. They have a mobile shelter, and predator protected enclosure that is moved daily to give them access to fresh forage. They are placed outside at 5 weeks of age, and remain there until processing time approximately 17 weeks.
