Our newest addition to the Home Grown Farm family of products is our pastured chicken. Adding chickens to the ecosystem of the farm was really a no-brainer. As with anything we do, we want to raise chickens the right way.
Our pastured chickens are kept in a brooder box (small chicken coop) for the first two weeks. This gives them time to feather out and grow strong legs. As soon as we see fit, we move them out to the pasture in what we call a chicken tractor. The chicken tractor allows them to graze on the grass and bugs while keeping them safe from predators. Every day we move the chicken tractors forward so they are always on fresh ground.
As a result of our efforts, you can taste the difference. Happy chickens are delicious chickens.
