 We are proud to offer fresh, local chicken raised on our pastures and supplemented with whole-grain certified organic non-GMO feed. You might be interested in trying one because…

 •Their feed is whole-grain certified organic non-GMO from Reedy Fork Farm in Elon, NC. We order bulk whole grains and grind the feed here so that the chickens are always getting the freshest feed possible.

•Chicks are fed fresh greens as part of their feed since they day they arrive as baby chicks.

•They are put onto pasture to forage by 3 weeks of age and remain there until processing.

•Their forage area is rotated daily so that they do not tear up the land.

•They are not fed or treated with antibiotics.

•Broilers are packaged in a BPA-free shrink bag that protects against freezer burn.

•Livers, hearts, heads and feet also available.

We are happy to be using the Foothills Pilot Plant in Marion, NC for our poultry processing. This is a USDA and Animal Welfare Approved facility geared towards small-scale producers like us.

 Freedom Rangers are our favorite meat chicken so far. They have beautiful chunky drumsticks, a nice long breast, and great fat which keeps them from drying out when roasting. The chickens are excellent foragers which means they (and you) get added vitamins from eating a variety of pasture plants.

 Freedom Rangers are a slower-growing breed than what you would typically get from the grocery store and are known for their unique taste and texture. Our Freedom Ranger chicks are from a small hatchery in Pennsylvania called Freedom Ranger Hatchery, Inc. which imports their breeding stock from France.

Our broilers typically sell out. If you are interested in purchasing them, then please reserve them at
