Chickens

Cornish fowl Cornish: The Cornish fowl originated in Cornwall, England. The Dark Cornish, the parent breed generally known abroad as “Indian Game," even though Cornish are the more correct one. A distinguishing characteristic of the Cornish is that the body of both male and female is of the same conformation. Dark Cornish were admitted to the American Standards in 1893.

A super heavy meat producing bird and the first really meat producing bird in the world. The modern chicken of today is base on this breed. It lost favor in the commercial world because it is very slow growing but was used in the 1940's to make the Cornish Rock of today. This wonderful fowl today is very rare and should be bought back to our table. The meat if full of flavor, richness and firmness that can not be beat. As my mother said "it is like eating cake". All are birds are raised free ranged and free of drugs and animal by products. The parents of our birds are free ranged too and hatched here on our farm. We take great care and pride in how our birds are raised and cared for.

Barred Plymouth Rock Barred Plymouth Rock: The Barred Plymouth Rock was first exhibited at America's first poultry show, held at Boston, Mass., 1849. This wonderful old breed Barred Plymouth Rock was admitted to the first American Standard of Excellence, published at Buffalo, NY January 15, 1874. This breed soon became very popular and common across America.

During the beginning of the last century it held at the number one breed in America for over 50 years. It was known for it fine eggs, quality of meat and vigor. The Barred Rock is the best dual purpose fowl there is. I have been raising this breed for over 50 years and my dad before that. You will find the meat firm, rich and full of good yellow fat. All are chickens are raised free range and out on good green pastures. The parents of the birds you buy will have been free ranged as well. No antibiotics, animals by products are used in our feed. The birds are fed a total vegetarian diet with all the green grass and seeds they can eat.
