If you can’t already tell, we make an effort to ensure that every animal we raise has access to pasture. The broilers are no exception and are raised in bottomless 10’ by 12’ by 2’ high portable pens out on pasture. Everyday we move these pens to fresh ground giving the birds new grass and clean bedding.
Our broilers get plenty of exercise, sunshine, and fresh air. While the forage intake of these chickens is not very high, it is enough to make a difference in the taste and nutritional quality of the meat.
UPDATE: Pastured broilers are now available from Three Sisters Farm.
