Why Regeneratively-Raised Chicken

SHOP CHICKEN

Finding chicken that are truly healthy is not easy.

With confusing and misleading labels found in grocery stores many story bought poultry has been fed a diet comprised mostly of inexpensive GMO corn and soy. This diet is harmful to you and your loved ones.


Even organic chicken, though seemingly a better option, is typically raised in confinement, fed predominately corn and soy feed, and administered vaccinations. 

Conventionally-Raised Chicken

Conventionally raised chicken, confined to limited indoor spaces, lack exercise and access to a natural diet. Their cramped living conditions lead to a diet heavy in grains. These grains increase their polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) levels and lower the vitamin content of the chicken.[1]

Chicken Raised Right

At Apsey Farms, all of our chicken is regeneratively-raised on pasture as nature intended and supplemented with corn & soy-free low-PUFA feed on our family farm and partner farms.

This method of farming is sustainable and regenerative, improving the land's health while providing animals with a humane environment. Our rotational foraging means greater parasite resistance, and less disease for our chickens – we don't need to use chemical dewormers, antibiotics, hormones, etc. [1] [2] [3]

Better for you. Better for the animals. Better for the planet. Our regenerative farming practices leads to our low-PUFA corn & soy-free chicken being healthier:

  • Healthy living conditions
  • Healthy birds without the use of vaccines and antibiotics
  • Fresh air and sunlight
  • Access to fresh grass and bugs with non-GMO supplemental feed
