Eberly Poultry is free-range raised on small Amish and Mennonite family farms in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. The family tradition of raising poultry nature's way makes a world of difference in the flavor of our chicken.
The “poultry” is usually grown and processed with commercial production methods. Meaning, sometimes production is geared towards volume at the expense of the finished products overall taste. Also, in order to attain high volume, machinery is used to process chickens. Eberly's poultry is hand processed with a low volume environment this enhances the quality taste of our birds. In our world of poultry raising, it is a balanced blend of family farm tradition and advanced development of both poultry breeds and organically grown feed grains. Our poultry breeds are selected because they grown better naturally.
Eberly Poultry Organic Free-Range Chickens and Turkeys are U.S.D.A. inspected and certified organically grown by the Northeast Organic Farmers Association and Pennsylvania Certified Organic.
Then we give them what they need most to grown into plump, young, naturally flavorful birds:
A true free-range environment, where they get plenty of sunshine, fresh air, and room to exercise. Studies show that foraging; free-range poultry produces healthier, meatier birds with more muscle and less fat.
Improved organically grown grains that are naturally high in protein and nutrients. Our feed grains are resistant to disease and grown with organic farming methods, like crop rotation, that prevent disease. Since we are organic, we do not use modified grain in our feed. The soils are enriched only with organic fertilizers and humus.
Pure, mineral-rich water clean enough for our farm families to drink themselves. Chlorine and fluoride aren't needed.
Time to mature. Eberly poultry is allowed to grow to full potential for the highest quality flavor and meat firmness. That's nature's timing!
Eberly Poultry never uses growth stimulants, antibiotics or animal by products in our organic feed. Our poultry is fed only wholesome organic feeds and given fresh water. So feel confident when buying an Eberly chicken you are buying “Poultry as Nature Intended."
