At Thorpe Farms we believe in ethically and naturally raising our meat. All of our chickens are raised in a moveable shed, called the Cackellac. This building is raised and moved daily, allowing the birds to come and go as they please, to chase bugs or to just lounge around in the tall grass. The chickens are then ushered in at dusk to keep them safe from predatory animals.
We believe that a happy, stress free chicken is a must. Our chickens are pasture raised, not caged, are not overcrowded and able to roam, making them generally less stressed. Pasture raised animals make better tasting, higher protein, vitamin enriched meat. We believe that keeping our chickens as stress-free as possible means that their meat is safer, healthier, more nutritious… and more delicious! Order Now
Besides being free range, there are a number of ways we treat our chickens better than anyone:
We pasture raise our chickens. Our chickens actively graze on vitamin and protein rich pasture – hunting for seeds, insects, while fertilizing our fields.
We make sure their health and nutrition is as natural as possible too. All of our chickens are government inspected and are processed in a family run processing butcher shop.
Chickens can be cut into pieces – 2x breasts, 2 thighs, 2x legs, 2 x wings for $1.00/cut extra= $8.00 + cost of bird
