We raise chickens on pasture in bottomless pens that we move each day. Prior to the 1960's chickens were not raised in the large confinement houses as they were today. The prices for poultry were higher due to supply/demand, however, due to the chickens being outside in their natural environment the chickens and the meat was healthier and not supported by antibiotics. Here at Diamond G Family Farm, we strive to raise a healthy natural chicken that spent its life on pasture doing what chickens do, scratching, pecking, and just being chickens. Our chickens are raised in portable pens that we move daily to cut down on chickens hurt or killed by the many chicken predators that naturally live in the wild. There are many health benefits to eating pasture raised poultry. The benefits include: Low in Saturated Fat/Cholesterol High in Omega 3 fatty acids Arsenic Free Higher levels of Beta-Carotene High in Vitamins A,C, and E GMO Free Antibiotic Free While the chickens do eat a significant amount of grass, weeds, and insects, they do need supplemental feed in order to survive. We choose to purchase our feed from a local mill which produces GMO free broiler grower. We believe that this leads to a higher quality final product. Our poultry production model is environmentally friendly. The chickens naturally create a lot of manure every day. This is one of the reasons for moving the pen each day. In addition to using natural fertilizer (the chicken's manure) on our pasture, the chickens scratching opens the ground to allow better nutrient integration. This allows for less possibility of nutrient runoff. Essentially the chickens are doing work for us! We believe in seasonality of farming; In fact it is Biblical. Ecclesiastes 3:2 states: A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted. What this means to us is, we begin our first batch of chickens in the brooder house while it is still cold outside. We plan to get our first batch outside on the first days when the grass is beginning to spruce up and the weather won't freeze anymore. We also plan to have our last batch off of pasture by the time the grass isn't growing as well. The earth is seasonal in production of grass, insects, and weeds, which are essential to our chickens, so in essence, if we raised the broiler chickens over the winter, inside, they would not be the same product you desire. We believe that in following the above model of production that we produce some of the best chicken available. If you recognize the model we are using as familiar, it was originally designed by Joel Salatin, a natural farmer from Va. How to order our chickens and eggs: If you are interested in ordering fresh pasture raised chicken from us, we can be contacted via telephone, email, or message to request an order form. After your initial order, we will keep in touch for any future ordering needs. We raise several batches available May - October. Please understand that even though we operate seasonally, our chickens will last all year long in your freezer. As an added benefit to help you, we have them packed in freezer safe bags for you upon pickup.
We sell our chicken processed as Whole, Half, Quarter, or Breasts, Leg/Thigh, etc. When you order, our lead time is about 7 weeks. For orders less than 50, we try to get your order and several others together to make it more cost effective to raise the birds.
We also produce pasture raised non-gmo eggs. They are housed in a large wagon that we regularly move. There are doors that allow the chickens to exit the wagon and forage in a fenced in area. We sell eggs in our store along with the broiler chicken.
