Our pastured egg-laying hens are raised on our farm from their second day of life. We have a variety of heritage breeds including Rhode Island Red, Black Australorp, Buff Orpington, and Barred Rock. We move them multiple times each week throughout our pasture during the spring, summer, and fall months. When temperatures drop, we move our chickens into a truly cage-free, Clearspan hoop house where they have 24 hour access to the outdoors. We respect their natural laying cycle which decreases significantly in the cold months. We never use artificial lights or stressful practices to unnaturally boost production.
