Laying Hens

pastured all year


Our Laying hens, all 500 of them, roam around on our pastures and woods every day, 365 days a year.

Strong willed and brave, our chickens enjoy the good life eating up all the bugs and insects they can find. By moving them everyday three days behind the cows they always have fresh cow patties to play in and they do a great job of spreading the manure across the farm. They also help us keep a check on the flies, ticks and other pests we have. Buff Orpingtons, Barred Rocks, New Hampshire Reds and Araucanas currently make up the flock.
