Absolute Pastured Poultry is a small scale local family farm that raises chickens more naturally on pastures in the scenic Sugarloaf Mountain valley near the Interstate I-80 and I-81 intersection. Our farm is located far away from "industry" in the heart of prime agricultural land. Excellent soil and open fields have produced natural pasture without the exposure to any of the modern controversial agricultural chemicals and factory production methods for over 150 years.

We initially began raising chickens for ourselves, but found out quickly that others also wanted healthier, higher quality, more naturally raised chicken for their own families. The chickens that we custom raise for you are never fed any antibiotics, hormones or animal by-products. We utilize only certified organic feed from a local mill. Our flocks produce excellent high quality, great tasting chicken.

We begin in the Spring when green pastures return and are able to raise throughout the summer and early fall. Having us raise custom meat chickens for you and your family begins by contacting us before and throughout this time period. Call us or email us if you have any further questions. You will be glad you did! Thank you. ____ Don and Sue Ritter, Absolute Pastured Poultry

I've been eating this farm's chickens for several years now. It is by far the best chicken I've ever had. Always tender and great quality! Highly recommend

Nice large plump and very flavorful chicken. Just bought some of the fall chicken butchering. Pleasant farm family.
