Our Story

We are a 1st generation family farm located in Kalamazoo currently producing pasture raised Chicken and Goat.
Our chickens are raised in mobile range coops or chicken tractors and are moved to a fresh patch of ground every day. This gives them access to fresh bugs, clover & grass; everything a chicken wants to eat naturally. We believe in keeping food local so we source everything we can from within 50 miles of the farm including our baby chicks and our Non-GMO grain. Our family is committed to raising our flocks humanely and to deliver healthy food to our local community.
