Meat kings are our broiler of choice. They are a very common breed of meat chicken. Also known as a Cornish cross, they grow rapidly and are very efficiently convert feed to meat. They are easy to raise and can work quite well in a pasture system.
We raise our meat chickens on pasture and they are moved daily. We supplement them with a barley and wheat ration. These factors all combine to give our chickens a superior flavour to store bought chicken.
Our laying hens are also kept on pasture with access to shelter and roosts at night time. In the winter time our hens are moved indoors, to protect them from predators and the elements. Like our meat chickens they also enjoy a barley and wheat ration in addition to the clover and grubs they forage from the pasture.
