Pasture Raised CHICKEN
The chickens we raise are destined to be the cream of the crop from day one when they are started on a non-GMO, non-medicated ration. In a typical setting new hatchlings would be fed a medicated feed in an effort to prevent illness, but our birds aren't typical and neither are we. It is our belief, that a clean environment and attentive care are all the preventatives necessary. Vegetarian diet? Heck no. Chickens are omnivores and would be nutrient deficient without proper protein. Once they no longer require added heat, the chicks are raised on grass for the rest of their lives spending their days scratching for bugs, eating greens and sun bathing in fresh country air, like chickens should. We stimulate them to reach their grass intake potential by moving the enclosure each morning when the birds are most active. We supplement with non-GMO grains since foraging for greens only makes up 15% of their diet. When the time comes to harvest the flock, we thank each bird for the ultimate sacrifice and feel good knowing the life they led was respectable. So, why our chicken? It seems the question should really be, why not?
