farmer and our collective future. Our birds are
not caged in small confined spaces like most high production industrial farms. They
are pasture raised, safe from predators, spending their days
eating insects and living grasses in the fresh air and sunshine,
avoiding the “fecal dust” of high density factory farms. They are often
free to roam outside of pens. Their high intake of grasses mean a
high intake of detoxifying chlorophyll and Omega 3s as well. They are fed
certified organic feeds free of genetically modified organisms
pesticides, herbicides, hormones and growth agents. Their diet is further
improved with carefully selected natural feed supplements to
boost already high levels of Omega-3 essential fatty
acids that are so important to good human health. Altogether, this
produces a product low in fat and high in nutrients. The flesh is firm,
not spongy like that from many confinement farms.
The high costs
of organic inputs raises the cost of production but we
have no doubt it produces the highest possible quality and the most healthy
product. You will taste the difference. Our humane practices are
also something that you can take comfort in.
the old adage; "You are what you eat", Americans in general eat too much
of relatively poor quality (highly processed) food, including “factory
farm” meat. Our objective is to produce a product for the health
conscious person that understands what they eat will effect their body
in many ways. It’s better for everyone to eat less of better quality
food. It’s an added bonus that our chicken tastes so much
than supermarket chicken.
