What Sets Us Apart

🌿What Sets You Apart?🌿
.
I recently had someone write and ask β€œwhat sets you apart? Why should I purchase chicks from you and not a big hatchery?”
🌿
The question made me realize that I have not listed our mission statement clearly in a post in sometime so here goes! ❀️
🌿
🐣We are different and worth supporting because we are a fully integrated farm and hatchery family business. Every chick we hatch, every egg laid comes from birds we work with and see everyday here.
🐣
We are a no kill hatchery (look up what hatcheries do to their extra male chicks). Every life is respected that we work with and hatch.
🐣
All of our chickens are free to roam on pastures, they are not in warehouses or breeding cages.
🐣
We breed for kind docile temperament and select sweet roosters year after year to break the cycle of people being afraid to go into the barnyard. Sweet roosters exist!
🐣
We breed for gorgeous egg color and season after season we develop fun new shades of color to create interesting depth to your daily egg collecting basket.
🐣
We have a strong environmental focus. We run on πŸ’― solar power generated in an array in our pasture.
🐣
We have πŸ’― plastic free compostable packaging for our eggs, chicks, and shipments/pickup boxes.
🐣
We are a zero waste farm, always making shifts to generate less and less waste. We love educating on this process and encouraging others along the way.
🐣
We donate a portion of our sales to the @childrenseternalrainforest for their reforestation efforts in connecting rainforest corridors. Boosting the lungs of our planet.
🐣
We do our own shipping/customer service so from first order placed to chicks arriving in your brooder you have help along the way.
🐣
We ship nationwide and also offer farm pickups for chicks. We are about to enter the sweet spot of weather being warm enough for us to ship to every state. From the first week of May on we will be shipping everywhere and you can order in confidence.
🐣
We offer chicken and quail keeping classes so you can work with your birds in confidence.
🐣
Why are we worth supporting? Because our hearts are in everything we do and we love introducing chickens and the lifestyle they create to the world. Less waste, self reliance, more outside time.

The Colors Are Coming

✨The colors are coming✨
.
This is a special time of year on the farm. The incubators have been quiet for a few months, the juvenile birds have been peacefully growing up alongside their older counterparts and the pastures are a lush green from our seasonal rain.
✨
It is a moment of anticipation, the whisperings of the first eggs laid, the new colors emerging, the beginning of a hatching cycle and offering our energy out into the world.
✨
Β 
Our family is rested, regrouped, strong and eagerly awaiting the day when our brooders will be full of the sound of peeping.
✨
Everyday we pray for ears to listen, to be shown the direction our farm needs to go to be of service. These days we begin to turn our attention outward and we think of you all, we pray for our national and global community. The air we breathe is one, the water we drink, the soil we plant in. We send prayers of peace, protection, inspiration and gratitude for you all. May we all arise to the new year of 2021 together. Stronger, wiser, more compassionate and patient from all 2020 taught us.
✨
Here’s to this years firsts, thank you for being on the journey with us and supporting our work in the world. ❀️
