Rafter W Ranch offers our customers the most nourishing locally raised grass-fed beef and pastured eggs available, and we are very excited to announce the addition of pastured poultry to our convenient online store. You will soon have another option for serving your family healthy, nourishing meals; the versatile chicken. We know you want the best food possible for your family, and that’s exactly what you get when you purchase anything from us. We raise our poultry the good, old-fashioned way with lots of sunshine, lush green pasture grass, organic, non-GMO, soy-free and corn-free grain.
What exactly is pastured poultry? It is a sustainable agriculture technique of raising chickens, as opposed to confining them to an indoor coop or building, and is a much more humane, healthier method than the typical commercial chicken farm. Rafter W Ranch will have broiler chickens, also known as “meat” chickens (as opposed to laying chickens), which will be raised using a pastured feeding system that allows the chickens to scratch and peck the way they were born to, taking advantage of the sunshine and fresh air that Colorado is known for, and partaking of the abundant insect population. Pastured feeding is not just good for our chickens, but it also helps improve our soil, which then grows the beautiful green grass and produces the insects the chickens feed on. This healthy land fosters healthy animals for you to feed your healthy family.
