Is there any risk? Yes. As with any farming enterprise there are potential circumstances that may prevent PBC from delivering on time. While we have a good history of growing delicious, nutrient dense chicken, turkey and pigs over the past several years, we live in an area with a full complement of predators as well as mountain weather beyond our control. Our practices take every precaution from solar powered electrified fencing, to our dogs, Obie and Bubs, but the reality is that we are just two responsible, passionate, high altitude farmers building a sustainable farm. We won’t make promises we can’t keep but we will do everything in our power to fulfill the obligation we have to you to deliver delicious, nutrient dense food that is raised in a sustainable way. Sorry, No Guarantees. You do risk with us. That’s the purpose behind the CSA concept.
How are the chickens raised? We receive day old chicks from Dunlap Hatchery in Caldwell Idaho and place them in a warm brooder until they grow their feathers. That usually takes about two or three weeks. We then put them in portable shelters in groups of 35 to 50 birds out on pasture. These shelters are open on the bottom which allows them access to pasture grass and all the bugs they can catch. They are also fed free choice organic grains and always have fresh water. A portion of the shelter is covered with a tarp to protect them from rain and wind but a large part is open to abundant sunshine and clean air. We move these shelters every day onto fresh grass and that portion of the pasture is not grazed again until next year. This allows the soil to digest the significant nitrogen load that exists in chicken manure. Over the years this has built the soil and has helped heal the land.
