Pasture Raised Chicken
Three Ten Farms pasture raised broiler (meat) chickens are quality hearty birds that have lived on pasture for the majority of their lives. Our antibiotic and hormone free chickens are hand raised by our daily rotation practices.
In our photos you an see the bottomless portable cages that are moved daily, one cage length ahead of itself. This allows the chickens access to constant fresh forages, provides excellent sanitization and pasture fertilization.
Our bottomless "tractors" provide the birds with shelter from predators and the elements while still allowing them to have free access to forage for their natural diet. Our chickens natural diet consists of all different types of seeds, grains, green grasses, bugs and worms. This is supplemented with a Certified Organic feed. The end product is more flavorful tasting and unlike any factory raised confined poultry.
In our pastured system natural fertilization is returned to the soil, enriching our green pastures, laying the grounds for a healthy and nutritious regrowth and allowing the cycle to naturally fortify itself. We use no chemical fertilizers anywhere on our farm including our pastures.
Our poultry is processed in a USDA Inspected facility that is also Animal Welfare Certified.
