Our Flock

We focus on raising a biodiverse flock filled with heritage, rare, and unusual breeds of chicken and duck. Our birds are raised on pasture and help do their part in enriching our soil, reducing pest + disease pressure, and providing delicious eggs + meat.

quick Facts

are they given grain? yes they are given Certified Organic Feed to supplement their diet. we make sure at least half of their feed needs are met with a diversely-planted pasture.

Are they given any supplements? they are given organic Icelandic kelp, azomite (trace minerals), oyster shells (calcium), and red granite (a source of grit to help them process their food)

swedish Blue/Black/Gray lore holds that blue colored ducks are hardy, superior meat producers, and difficult for predators to see, making this duck popular in Europe for centuries.
