Chicken is a seasonal, in-store only product! Our chickens are raised on the Fairview farm April through November and are not currently available for online sale. If you would like to pre-order or place a special order you can Ask the Butcher.
HNG chickens are rotated to fresh grass daily. They feed on grubs, insects and natural forages along with a supplemental feed of corn and soy. As with all HNG animals they are never given antibiotics or added hormones.
Chickens thrive on pasture where they can forage for their own food and move around with freedom. In return, they supply our pastures with some of the best fertilizer a farmer could ask for. Poultry manure is an excellent source of Nitrogen, Phosphorous, and Potassium (NPK) helping increase soil organic matter, water holding capacity and beneficial bacteria. This makes poultry a key component of regenerative agriculture systems, leaving our land robust and enhancing soil for generations to come.

Every Thanksgiving season, the Fairview Farm raises hundreds of pasture-raised turkeys for the holidays. These birds can be reserved in advance with a deposit and picked up from the farm the week prior to Thanksgiving.
