Pasture Raised Whole Chickens from Gray Acres Farm in Paonia, CO
Their birds spend the majority of their lives on pasture. This healthy lifestyle translates into the tastiest meat on the Western Slope. Offering whole frozen birds with giblets.
Their birds have plenty of room and fresh air from the day they are brought on our farm to the day we process them ourselves. They start in our indoor brooder with heat plates to replicate a mother hen’s warmth, a deep bedding of wood chips, and a layer of fine ground alfalfa to get them greens from the get go. At 3 weeks they take them out into their own mobiles, each equipped with fresh water and chicken feed.
Their feed is mixed locally and available for the birds’ pleasure from day one. Once on pasture, it is available in conjunction with the fresh grass they are moved to daily. When the time comes, they collect the birds and process them on farm into clean, delicious food.
