Pastured is better

Our pastured chickens are not just given "access to outdoors", they spend their entire lives outside on grass after two weeks of age. Due to the warm climate of the Alabama Gulf Coast, our farm is able to raise chickens from spring to early winter. Our chickens are housed in mobile pasture shelters in order to protect them from predators like hawks, owls, foxes, and coyotes. We move our pasture shelters once, sometimes twice a day. This daily rotational grazing, gives the chickens access to fresh grass and new bugs to eat, while their manure fertilizes the pasture. We process all of our chickens on-farm under state exemption. This allows us to retain complete control of product quality and food safety standards.

Chicken Brooder 2

The Brooder

We receive our pastured broilers as 1-2 day old chicks. Upon arrival, they are immediately placed in the brooder. The brooder provides a safe environment for the chicks to grow while waiting to be moved to pasture. We keep our brooder between 90 to 95 degrees. Assuming good weather, the chicks are moved to pasture between 2 and 3 weeks old.
