We raise Freedom Ranger broilers for our meat chickens. The Freedom Ranger is sourced from Freedom Ranger Hatchery in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The hatchery is a family farm, dedicated to traditional, sustainable and environmentally-friendly farming methods that produce high-quality chicks.
Unlike the fast growing, white hybrid broiler so common on today's farms, the Freedom Ranger is a slower growing breed more suitable to the pasturing method that we use on our farm. Freedom Ranger birds were derived from an American and European heritage breed that was developed in the early 1960s to meet the high standards of the French Label Rouge Free Range program.
We offer a limited supply of this wonderful tasting chicken during the late summer and fall months by pre-order only. Contact us to place your order now.
Our chickens are a big part of Yellow Creek Farm. They provide the delicious eggs and meat that we provide to our customers.
Our egg laying flock consists of several different breeds of hens including Red Stars, Black Stars, Rhode Island Reds, Dominiques and Egyptian Fayoumis.
They are raised on a pasture and have access to grass, bugs, worms, dirt, sunshine and fresh air. Along with the free range food, they are given a fresh, non-GMO chicken feed. Our chickens are never caged or given any type of medication or hormones.
What does this mean for you? It means fresh eggs that taste better and are better for you. Healthy hens lay healthy eggs. The old adage "you are what you eat" certainly holds true when considering the nutritional value of pastured eggs.
