Farming The Old Fashioned Way

Back to Basics Farming

Our small family farm is located in “The Quiet Corner” of NE Connecticut, where we practice “back to basics” farming, as our Yankee ancestors did. We utilize no chemicals or commercial pesticides in our fields, and rely solely on our chickens to naturally fertilize our pastures.
We have the utmost respect for our natural resources.

Our Chickens

Our Chickens

Pasture Raised and Free Range

Our chickens experience a stress free existence, having daily access to fresh air and sunshine. They are “Pasture Raised” foraging in the green grassy fields, under the shade of our movable shelters. We respect our chickens, so we provide them with the freshest, most vitamin rich feeds available along with humane care and the freedom to act like chickens.

Our Chickens Diet

Green Grass and Non GMO Feed

Our method of “chicken tractor” farming allows our chickens to be moved to fresh grass daily so they continually have access to fresh green forage, seeds and insects.
Besides the food our chickens naturally forage we give them free access to Connecticut grown NON GMO feed. This feed is ground fresh and delivered to us on a bi-weekly basis.
