Our chickens are kept on pasture their whole life - sunshine, a diet of foraging grass, insects, and seeds, along with locally grown and milled Non-GMO grain from Clover Hill Farm in Hardwick MA, makes for a happy bird and a very delicious chicken. Because we only raise our meat when there is green grass,  we like to have folks reserve a bird ahead of time to make sure we have enough.

Pasture raising chickens is a critical part of our holistic farming practice. These birds follow our sheep and goats in a rotational grazing system, cleaning up behind them and ensuring a beautiful lush field for healthy, happy animals, a plethora of pollinators, and excellent water retention. The drought of 2016 hit New England hard. While we lost a lot of vegetables due to lack of water, our pasture still managed to support our sheep - all thanks to the work of the chickens and rotational grazing to develop a diverse and resilient community of grasses and forage plants. 

Pastured poultry isn't just good for the land - it is great for you and the farmer. The complexity of flavor in a pastured bird comes from its diverse diet and the daily exercise it takes to catch all of those bugs and scratch all those seeds. We don't have to truck in feed for our birds - considerably lowering the carbon footprint of our birds and keeping them from becoming fatty and bland tasting white meat.

We love our birds and think you will too.

**We do everything we can to ensure the safety and health of our birds but nature is unpredictable and we cannot always keep the fox from the coop or a chicken from catching a cold (they do get colds!). Please understand that this is an unavoidable part of raising healthy, happy, delicious poultry outdoors and free-roaming. Reservations are non-refundable.**
