THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR SUPPORTING YOUR LOCAL FARMS
Pastured Poultry at Crack O' Dawn Farm
Our poultry is a barnyard mix of heritage breeds of over 180 laying hens, ducks and turkeys. All of our poultry are pastured together in a multi species environment with sheep, and goats. Everyone is out all day, and tucked into barns at night from predators.
We ferment whole grains from Scratch and Peck to increase their digestibility for a variety of birds. Poultry are supplemented with organic kelp, diatomaceous earth, oyster shell, nutritional yeast, and dried herbs. In the barn there is free choice non-gmo Bar Ale chicken feed to supplement their fermented grains and pasture diet.
Depending on what is available, we bring the friendlier poultry into our local schools during their avian units and holidays.
Of course, the biggest hit is always kidding season when we bring the goat kids into visit the classrooms.
But the turkey likes to think he is the most impressive specimen.
