We pride ourselves on our exceptionally rare selection of heritage breed poultry & their unparalleled flavor! 

You would be hard pressed to find our signature Bonticou and Bresse chickens or our French Duclair ducks anywhere else in the country. Our pastured heritage birds are very slow growing compared to grain-fed commercial breeds; while commercial chickens are harvested at 6 weeks, ours are harvested at 4 months.

We go to great lengths to rotationally pasture our flocks and provide them with a rich, varied diet and plenty of exercise. Our flocks forage freely over woods, brush, and fields seeded with rye, buckwheat, winter peas, wheat and clover. They snack on insects, berries, grass and garden scraps, and are finished on grains soaked in local raw milk. They live in the sunshine and splash through mud, lovingly raising their young. Our older birds are pastured on a 100+ acre orchard in Stone Ridge, NY where windfall apples and pumpkins are available in season. They enjoy full, happy lives the way nature intended. Their varied diet results in especially tasty birds, lower in fat and much richer in flavor than anything commercially available.
