About our Poultry
We raise all of our poultry here on our farm in the Catawba Valley. We do not contain our birds in the high tunnel confinement huts that larger operations use, but instead build portable huts to house the birds and move them about on pasture. While a “free-range” option is attractive, we have found that local predators benefit more from this model, so we opt for the more humane option to move our birds around on pasture in protective huts.
Our birds get freshly milled feed from our local mill – Big Spring Mill. They are moved about on grass, so there is plenty of natural plant material and protein from the bugs that the chickens find scratching about. Following the cows about the field adds even more opportunities for them to feast from the natural larvae found in the paddies the cows leave behind. A natural cycle of life, this process helps to ensure a balance in nature to promote overall health of the chickens, and the environment.
We are a small operation, so we operate under an exemption by the state allowing us to slaughter the birds on site. Clean air and sunshine helps to make a healthy, sanitary environment ensuring a quality, natural product for you.
