the friendly farmers chicks

The main new enterprise on the farm is 'pasture poultry', basically the concept is raising chickens on a grass and grain diet. This leads to better tasting chicken as 30% of their diet consist of grass. Plus the chickens live to the older age of 10 weeks, which allows the birds to mature and reach a larger size. Finally the birds live outside 24 hours a day in a pen that allows them to make the most of natures natural elements, growing fit, strong and healthy. The pen is moved every morning, and the chickens walk on to fresh grass for the day. In this way they avail of fresh grass sprouts and naturally fertilize the ground.
