Moving out to Pasture:
This week our broiler chickens are old enough to be moved out of the brooder and onto pasture. We are just about to finish up construction of 2 mobile coops that will be moved all around the pasture. These coops will keep the birds safe from predators, while still allowing them to scratch through the pasture and eat grass and bugs. The design of these coops is my own, but I've borrowed several aspects of many renditions that have come before. I will be posting pictures of the new coops as they are finished. Be sure to check out: or on our new instagram account @carltonfarm

Thanks for your continued support. At Carlton Farms we are proud to be your farmer.
