Here are just a few of the reasons:
-our birds are free from any and all vaccinations...
-antibiotic free from hatch through processing
-free from arsenic, hormones, steroids or any other chemical which can be used to enhance growth
-given certified organic garlic & ACV in their daily water boosting their immune systems naturally
-fed custom milled feed, mixed fresh every week, which is comprised wholly of local grains produced by local farmers within a two county area surrounding our farm
-certified organic kelp is then added to the daily ration
-grazing includes native grasses, herbs and weeds which are free from all fertilizers and pesticides. The only fertilizers used on our farm are manure from our animals and compost derived from sources on our farm
-regularly dine on choice morsels such as worms, beetles and grubs
-raised in groups to allow for completely natural social interactions and behaviors with very low stress levels which translates into happier birds and healthier meats
-NO de-beaking nor removal of toenails is permitted both of which are regular practices on commercial farms.
-after leaving brooders, poults are moved into bottomless tractors (housing) which are moved daily allowing full access to grass and bugs while providing protection from predators
-birds are then transitioned onto regularly rotated pasture where they eat, sleep, play and graze under the open sky. The move takes place once they are large enough to help deter attacks from airborne predators
-birds are processed humanely, with great care, on farm, by the farmers who raise them
-they are delivered fresh, never frozen, from our farm to you.
That's just part of what makes the birds from WAF so special!
