Our pasture raised meat and eggs have flavor! Flavor that is unmatched by the factory farmed poultry products you will find in the average grocery store.
We do not feed any hormones or antibiotics to any of our animals. We also do not use any additives to try and color the yolks of our eggs or meat.
Our birds and eggs get their color and flavor from being outside, having access to grasses, bugs, soil, and the sun. These things all together produce a quality that you can taste, and we are proud to offer to you.
Poultry we raise for meat include
and Cornish cross chicken
We raise mostly duck with a small amount of chicken for meat.
We also raise chickens and ducks for eggs as well.
