We raise free range chickens to supply you with both meat and eggs. Our Egg laying chickens live in Chickenmobiles that we move around the fields behind our Grass Fed beef cattle. The chickens spread the cattle manure and eat the bugs the manure attracts. This helps our ecosystem by dispersing nutrients into our soil and eliminating the need to add any insecticides to our pasture. It's an amazing, efficient system.
Our free range chickens are a heritage breed known as the White Delaware. The Delaware is one of at least 19 heritage breeds that have been designated as critically threatened, which means there are fewer than 500 left.
First introduced in 1940, Delawares are a cross between New Hampshire Reds and Barred Plymouth Rocks, bred with the goal of maintaining the terrific egg production of these two breeds but with a higher quality meat than a typical layer chicken provides.
