Pastured Poultry

The way chicken should taste.

The chickens of Four Hands Farm are a crucial component of our operation. Our chickens spend anywhere between 9 and 11 weeks moving over the land in mobile shelters doing the things that chickens love to do - scratch in the dirt and bask in the sunshine, all the while helping to keep farm and garden pests at bay. 


What's the big deal about pastured poultry, anyway? Compared to typical grocery store chicken (Think crowded, stinky commercial chicken houses filled to the brim with unhealthy birds that are fed garbage, GMO-laced grain and never get a breath of fresh air their entire lives. No, thanks.), our chickens spend their days out in the fresh air and sunshine, feasting on grasses, bugs, and high-quality organic, non-GMO feed. We joyfully substitute the commercial chicken house for breezy mobile chicken shelters that are moved every couple of days to ensure that the chickens always have fresh forage and bedding. We intentionally raise a breed of meat bird called the Freedom Ranger, known for its foraging abilities and hardiness compared to some of the commercial breeds. The difference is wildly apparent when it comes down to the end product. High in healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, our birds are known for their savory flavor profile and for producing a rich, yellow soup stock.

We are not offering pastured chicken at this time. We are currently in the middle of moving from one farm to another and anticipate that we will have chickens back in stock during the 2023 season. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to providing you with delicious, wholesome chicken in the near future!
