In the modern era, where consumers are increasingly concerned about the quality and source of their food, our farm in Sussex County, New Jersey, stands as a testament to high-quality, pasture-raised poultry. Our commitment is not only to the welfare of our chickens and the environment, but also to the ultimate consumer who expects fresh, wholesome meals on their table. This article will guide you through our meticulous process – from raising our chickens on our pastures to processing them at a USDA facility, and finally, delivering them straight to your doorstep.
1. Raising Pastured Poultry in Sussex County, NJ
Our journey begins with the chicks. These are sourced from responsible breeders who prioritize animal welfare and sustainability. Once they arrive on our farm, the real care begins.
Our chickens are raised on our pastures in Sussex County, housed in innovative mobile units known as chicken tractors. Unlike conventional poultry farms, our chickens are not confined to cramped spaces. These tractors are moved daily to ensure that the chickens always have access to fresh pasture, promoting their overall health and well-being.
2. Humanely Processing at a USDA Facility
When the chickens have reached the proper age and weight, they are transported to a USDA-approved processing facility. We place great emphasis on the humane handling of our chickens throughout this process.
At the facility, the chickens are processed under strict sanitary conditions, following all USDA regulations. This compliance ensures that our poultry meets the highest standards of safety and quality.
3. Packaging and Preparing for Delivery
Following processing, the chickens are rapidly chilled to preserve their freshness and prevent bacterial growth. They are then vacuum-sealed, ensuring the meat remains fresh and uncontaminated.
Each order is thoughtfully packaged with thermal insulated box liners and frozen gel packs to maintain the proper temperature throughout the delivery process. This careful packaging is vital to maintaining the quality and freshness of our products.
