Our birds are raised using organic and humane standards with all natural, GMO free feeds and 24 hour access to pasture and water.
We raise freedom rangers which were developed in the early 1960s to meet the highest standards of the French Label Rouge Free Range program.
Our birds are slower growing compared with conventional breeds which yields a deep, rich flavor. A healthier, happier bird is a better tasting chicken.

We raise our Freedom Ranger meat birds using organic methods with no hormones, antibiotics or pesticides. Our chicken has a superior taste due to its slow-growth compared with the fast-growth birds used in conventional industry. The meat is better for you, flavorful and firm, but not tough. Freedom Ranger breeding stock is imported from the regions of Burgundy and Brittany (France). The genetic stock is derived from the American and European old heritage breed of chicken and was developed in the early 1960s to meet the highest standards of the French Label Rouge Free Range program. Currently, the Freedom Ranger genetic stock is used by most non-factory farms all across Europe and by small pastured poultry producers in the US. We as farmers enjoy the challenge of raising a healthy farm chicken with succulent flavor and texture.
