About Our Food

Pastured Poultryeggs2

About our pastured poultry:
Our chicken and turkey are the most popular foods we grow. We raise our meat birds in small batches in portable pasture pens we move each day. Our birds are clean and healthy and always have lots of nutritious grass, clover and bugs to eat.

In addition, we feed our pastured broilers certified organic grain grown by Bucky Ziegler of Paradise Valley Organic Farm, in Limestoneville, PA. This assures you that your chicken is fed highly nutritious, chemical free and grain free feed.

Our chickens are the freshest you’ll eat because we process them the day before you pick them up. The texture and flavor of a pastured chicken or turkey can’t be beat.  There is just no comparison between pastured poultry and bland, antibiotic-laced, factory-raised birds.

Our pastured chicken and turkey are served by the Settlers Inn in Hawley, Pennsylvania. http://www.thesettlersinn.com/

100% Grass-fed Beef and Lamb

About our beef:

Our beef is 100% grass fed, no grain, no chemicals on our pastures for 30+years. Our beef comes from prime, young Angus/Hereford cattle raised entirely on pasture. The flavor is rich. The meat is lean and tender. It has less marbling, or intramuscular fat, than grain-fed beef. Our beef is custom-aged, vacuum-packaged and flash-frozen, ensuring the best flavor and long storage life in your freezer. Wholes, halves, and quarters are priced according to a hanging weight of 450-650 pounds for a whole beef. Our pastured beef is served at The Inn of Turkey Hill  in Bloomsburg, PA.564016_10150883712493868_240510814_n

Woodlot pork

About our pork:563373_10150883711843868_54713947_n

Raised in the woodlots at Forks Farm, our Tamworth/Old Spot hogs get to graze grasses and forbs, glean acorns, hickory nuts and other tree seeds/nuts and help us root out invasive species such as Multi-flora Rose and Japanese Stiltgrass and are also fed a custom grain mix made for us at the local mill.  This feed is not certified organic. The pigs cultivate the understory of the woods preparing the land for establishment of perennial grasses which in turn support the grazing of our beef herd and free range laying chickens.  All while producing the most succulent and delicious chops, hams, bacon and roasts.  The hams and bacon are cured using an old fashion recipe, free of nitrates/nitrites using hickory for the flavor.

*A note about our food: During the growing season, we process our poultry on the farm every week from May-October.  Typically, we process our beef, pork and lamb starting in the fall after the summer growing season.  This is SLOW FOOD – it takes 6 – 7 weeks to grow a pastured chicken, 8 months to raise a hog and about 2 years to properly grow a grass fed beef. Once the animal is grown, it takes 3 – 4 weeks to have a large animal processed (dry-aging, cutting, packaging, labeling and flash freezing). Good food takes time and we are committed to doing it right.   Let us know what you are interested in and we will try our best to grow, process and deliver to you the highest quality foods in a timely manner.
