We raise our poultry on pasture. We house our flocks in moveable pens, which are portable shelters that allow the flock to be transported to new pasture daily. We supplement their free-range diet with non-gmo feed from Sunrise Farm in Virginia. We have a policy to never use hormones and antibiotics. Small-scale, pastured poultry farming creates a sanitary and low-density environment in which pathogens do not flourish. Free-range poultry has a remarkably better taste than their factory raised counterparts. Exercise, socialization, high quality feeds, and a stress-free environment are important components that contribute directly to the taste and nutritional value of our poultry products. Since we raise chickens in small batches, we can ensure that every bird is healthy and processed in a humane manner. We comply with animal welfare standards. Our chickens can be found at the Western Wake Farmers Market, Downtown Raleigh Farmers Market, and Standard Food. Please feel free to contact us for on-farm pickup as well. We have plenty of frozen birds now. Our first batch of fresh chickens for the year will be ready April 1, 2017. We will have a steady supply of fresh chickens for the rest of the year....Read More

How we raise them Our pigs are fed a mixed diet of: 100% GMO-free feed, vegetable scraps from the garden and local restaurants, and brewers’ grain from local breweries. Some of our restaurant and brewery partners include: Stanbury, Standard Food, Garland, AC Restaurants and Trophy Brewing Co. We raise heritage breeds of pigs as nature intended, rooting and foraging in the woods. Our pigs are raised without anti-biotics. Our hogs are Berkshire/Cheshire crosses. Where to buy them Our pork is available in two ways. The first is at our farmers markets. Secondly, we seasonally offer bulk pork orders. Bulk orders require the purchase of a half or whole hog . Customers can select between three options for their meat. A whole or half hog order allows the customer to save money and try some new cuts of meat. Our bulk pork price is $7/lb. This is a bit higher than other farms, but is a direct result of our decision to use GMO-free feed for our hogs. For more information click here. For the spring pork sale, bulk pork orders need to be made by February 20,...Read More
