Our Marans free-range during the day through natural pastureland and shady hardwoods and evergreens.
The ducks and geese share a substantial enclosed area with a spring-fed pond and creek surrounded by lush grass and large hardwoods.
All of our feathered friends are closely watched by our livestock guardian dogs, Cooper, Emma, Willow, and our newest addition in 2023, a rescue Great Pyr named Kobi.
Bird quality, health, and happiness are important to us.
