Almost Heaven Farm is located in serene Monroe County, WV along the spine of the Appalachian Mountains. Gary and Gail Norton founded the farm in 1998 as a way to earn a respectable living while participating in the growing natural food/eat local movement.
On our 173 acre hillside farm we produce broiler chickens, turkeys, eggs, lamb and pork. All are naturally grown without the use of antibiotics (we do,however, use appropriate treatment for sick animals,a very rare problem), hormones, chemical pesticides or chemical herbicides.
Our goal is to allow the animals we raise to have as natural a life as possible while keeping them safe from predators. The broiler chickens, turkeys, laying hens and lambs are raised on pasture on a diet of natural grains and organic vitamin/mineral and probiotic supplements. Chickens are raised in moveable pens that are moved every day to offer a fresh smorgasbord of grasses, forbs and bugs. The turkeys are kept safe from predators inside electric netting covering about a 1/4 acre. They are moved every week or so since they have a much larger playground. Regularly moving the animals distrubutes the manure over the ground without the use of equipment or diesel fuel, prevents a toxic waste problem and provides a cleaner healthier environment for them.
Our featured product is premiere quality chicken and turkeys.
Chickens are available as whole birds, half birds and 8 piece cut-up. We also have skinless/boneless breasts, bone-in breasts, legs/thighs, wings, livers and carcasses (for stock). These are available for sale at the markets we attend (as shown elsewhere on this page), at the farm or by prearrangement. Chicken is available April to Dec.
Turkeys are available only as whole birds beginning in September up to Thanksgiving.
