Heritage breed Dominique eggs
Eggs & Meat
We raise a variety of birds for egg and meat production including chickens, guinea fowl, and turkeys. All of our birds are fed an organic diet and allowed to free range around the property.
Our laying hens meet the Animal Welfare Approved certification standards. We plan to also achieve this certification for meat birds and turkeys in 2021. To meet the standards, heritage birds are the only breeds allowed for production. Heritage birds are slower to mature and are minimally improved when it comes to comparing them to commercial poultry breeds like the Cornish cross chicken or Broad Breasted turkeys. You will rarely find heritage poultry products in stores, which makes their eggs and meat so much more valuable.
Our flock consists of Dominique chickens, Bourbon Red turkeys, and Blue Slate turkeys, all which are on the watch category for The Livestock Conservancy. Through the selling of eggs and meat, we are helping to maintain and promote these heritage breeds.
The farm is fortunate enough to operate a large cabinet incubator that allows us to hatch the majority of our flock on the farm, rather than sourcing from hatcheries. This ensures that our birds are provided the best of care from day one until the end. We process our birds on the farm so that they do not have to endure the stressors of transportation or unfamiliar places.
