Pasture Raised Poultry/ Grass Fed Meats
NOFA-NY Certified Organic Pastured Poultry
Liberty Farms raises a slow-growing roasting chicken called a Red Bro. These chickens are incredible foragers that offer high quality dark and light meat. All of our chickens are raised in mobile chicken houses, which are moved daily. They are forage raised, which means they eat the grasses, legumes, and bugs found naturally in our farm's soil, as well as certified organic grain from Green Mountain feed (GMO Free). Chickens that are raised this way have especially high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids found in grasses, making our pastured poultry not only extremely delicious but also highly nutritious.
NOFA-NY Certified Organic Eggs from Pastured Laying Hens
We have Three flocks of 150 each, of mixed breed heritage layers. Like our Red Bros, our heritage layers live in mobile chicken houses and eat an abundance of grasses, legumes and bugs, as well as supplemental grain feedings, from Green Mountain certified organic layer feed that is also GMO free. Due to our hens' protein-rich diets and their daily exposure to sunlight, our eggs are incredibly rich in omega-3 fatty acids and naturally occurring vitamin D. We hand collect and hand wash our beautiful eggs daily, and box them up in a bright mix of colors. Each hen's eggs are a slightly different color from one to the next!
We have a young flock of Shetland sheep, that we have breed to a Dorper ram for the 2018 lamb crop. The Dorper crossed with the hearty Shetland, will produce offspring that are hearty, disease and parasite resistant and will grow well on our summer pastures May thru October. The meat yield will be fine in flavors, and rich in natural vitamin D which is abundant in the lambs grass diet. Our sheep are pasture raised, they lamb with access to a warm and cozy barn, and are fed soly a diet of hay and grass.
In the fall of 2017 we began our beef herd. We have two Red Angus cows, and are excitedly awaiting our first calves this Spring. Organic grass fed/grass finished beef will be available in 2019.
