Here at Tagyerit Farm we believe that happy animals equal better food. We allow our animals to lead lives as natural to their species as possible. We currently raise pastured poultry, pork, and eggs. Our meat chickens are Freedom Rangers, and live in portable shelters with electrified netting around them, to protect the birds from predators while allowing the chickens to come and go as they please. They are fed a natural grain diet, on top of the grass and bugs they find on their own. The result is a chicken higher in Omega 3s, with a succulent and old fashioned chicken taste.
Our layers are raised the same as the meat birds, resulting in eggs with hard shells, deep yellow yolks, and wonderful taste and texture.
Our pigs are raised on pasture and in woods. We do not put rings in their noses, because rooting is natural to pigs, helping them find bugs, roots, worms, and turn up the ground to make cooling wallows for themselves.
We do not give any of our production animals vaccinations, chemical wormers, antibiotics, or medicated feed. We start with healthy, strong animals and through much hard work and love, maintain their health naturally.
