The differences between our chicken and conventionally raised chicken are numerous. We use the term “Always Outside” to note the fact that our chickens don’t just have ambiguous “access to pasture”, but actually live outside on pasture 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Instead of debeaking newly hatched chicks, our birds are able to use their beaks and talons to peck and scratch for bugs, worms, grasses, seeds, and more. Instead of using antibiotics to fight disease within the flock, we use a healthy environment of pasture, sunshine, fresh air, soil and space to prevent sickness. Instead of providing all vegetarian-fed chicken (chickens are not vegetarians), we want our chickens to eat as many bugs and worms as possible. And instead of hiding our farm from view, we know that our best practice of quality is in transparency, so we regularly open the farm for tours and answering your questions.
The result? Real chicken. We could call it pasture-raised, free range, cage-free, local, beyond organic, humane, bio-dynamic, sustainable, regenerative, and more. But 100 years ago, it was just called chicken. Let’s rewind poultry production back to a time before the industrialized mass production factories and experience the rich flavor that can only come from chickens that live outside on pasture. The way it was meant to be!
