When we say our chickens are "free range" we mean they spend most of thier days in the open fields.

What is "organic" farming?


In a nutshell, we are a farm dedicated to raising our livestock and growing plants without the use of harmful chemicals. By using natural processes and boidiversity, we can achive a beautiful balance of life without harming our fields and families with chemicals. "Organic farming, agricultural system that uses ecologically based pest controls and biological fertilizers derived largely from animal and plant wastes and nitrogen-fixing cover crops. Modern organic farming was developed as a response to the environmental harm caused by the use of chemical pesticides and synthetic fertilizers in conventional agriculture, and it has numerous ecological benefits." - https://www.britannica.com/topic/organic-farming
