The life and times of building a family and business

Hi all,

     This is my first Blog, ever.  So here we go.  Our farm has been around for a few years now but we are struggling to find our niche.  We just had a new baby born February 29th she is home, happy, and healthy.  So our family is growing!! Me, My wife Carrie, 19 month old Liam, and now baby Payton. 

    So after a lot of research, we are going to try to raise pastured Capons (neutered male chickens).  I am a chef by trade and the taste of a Capon is amazing!!  The texture and flavor surpasses any homegrown chicken I have ever had before.  So this year I want to try Capons, Ducks, and Turkeys.  All of which will be pastured and suplmented with natural feed no growth hormones and no antibiotics after the initial batch of feed when they come home from the hatchery. 

     I will keep everyone updated on the family and the chicks when they come.  I am excited about this season and look forward to hearing from everyone.

Looking forward to reading your blog about you raising your Capons. I am also interested in raising chickens. I am at that research stage so your blog will be valuable to me.

Best regards on your new venture.
