Farm Practices: We utilize sustainable farming practices to provide locally-grown, chemical-free produce. From our happy, pastured chickens come our rich tasting, brown eggs. Our broilers and turkeys are also on pasture to provide the best tasting meat available. We believe sunshine, grass beneath their feet, and the ability to root for tasty insects keep our poultry happy and healthy. To ensure proper nutrition they are also fed an all-natural, vegetarian supplemental diet.
