Beyers Maple Farm
Pasture Raised Poultry and Eggs
We feed our poultry Organic, Non/GMO and Soy-Free feed!
We raise 2 kinds of chickens; layer hens that lay eggs and broiler chickens that are raised specifically for meat. The layer hens live on average for about 2-5 years and have free range access to our property. They forage on over 4 acres of chemical and pesticide free grass. The meat birds are heritage breed and are raised in a portable coop that is moved onto fresh pasture daily. Once they reach 12 weeks of age they are taken to HLW Acres to be processed. Turkeys are raised much like the meat chickens, on pasture in a moveable coop. They are raised for 15 weeks. The different cuts we offer for chicken are whole, split, quartered, thighs and breasts. We have them vacuum sealed and ready for the freezer the same day they get processed.
Our fresh meat chickens will be ready for purchase on June 27, 2017. Call to make arrangements for pick up.
If you ordered a Thanksgiving turkey, they will be ready for pick up on Nov. 19th 2017. They must be picked up between Nov. 19-22nd.
If you're interested in purchasing our delicious and nutritious, homegrown, ORGANIC chickens, turkeys or eggs please give us a call at (716) 655-4127. More details and prices listed below.

We raise our chickens and turkeys humanely and without the use of antibiotics, steroids or hormones. They live in a stress free environment with everything that makes a happy chicken/turkey including fresh pasture, fresh air, fresh water, room to roam, sunshine and organic food from local milling companies. We also supplement their diet with sprouted grains and fodder as well as kitchen scraps. You'll notice a difference in the texture, taste and quality of our chickens compared to what you buy at the grocery store. Industrialized farmers mass produce their chickens by tens of thousands at a time. They cram them into cages no bigger than the size of a sheet of paper, they de-beak the baby chicks so they won't peck each other under the stressful environments they live in. This leads to chronic pain and more stress. They never see the light of day, never breathe fresh air, they eat the poorest quality feed at the cheapest price, they live in horrible, inhumane conditions. Prices are higher to raise homegrown chickens and turkeys because the government gives industrialized poultry farmers subsidies which offsets their costs. This gives the public a false sense of what it actually costs to raise poultry for the small poultry farmer. We charge what we put into raising our poultry. Costs for us include organic and Non-GMO feed, coop building materials, feeders, waterers and processing fees. We have our chickens processed and vacuum sealed at HLW Acres in Attica, NY. Grocery store chickens and turkeys are robotically processed which allows fecal matter to enter the cavity of the chicken. Then they give them a bath in chlorinated water. Yes, you heard that right. The poultry you get at the grocery store is soaked in fecal matter and then chlorinated to kill the bacteria. I don't know about you, but that's not the kind of chicken or turkey I want to eat. The fecal matter and chlorine soak into the skin and meat of the poultry and it ends up on your dinner plate. The USDA allows industrialized farmers to irradiate their poultry to kill salmonella and other bacteria. They also inject their meat with a salt water solution with added phosphates to add weight and flavor. So you're paying for water weight instead of just pure meat. With our homegrown chickens and turkeys, there is no need to irradiate them or inject them with water because they have all the nutrition and quality of life a chicken/turkey is supposed to have to produce the best quality meat. You get more meat for your money rather than paying for water weight. When you buy locally you help your community, local businesses and local farmers. You also get real food that will help you to thrive instead of just survive. We can make a difference by choosing to vote with our dollars. We appreciate your business.

Our layer hens are pasture raised, fed organic feed and supplemented with organic sprouted grains and fodder. We also feed them kitchen scraps. They free range on our land with complete access to the sun, fresh air, fresh water, bugs, grubs, grass, worms and all the nutrition they need. The farm fresh eggs we sell are a few days old. When you buy eggs from the grocery store, most are at least 45 days old. You'll notice our eggs have a yolk that is orange in color whereas a store bought egg is more yellow. This indicates how much more nutritious our eggs are.
In 2007 Mother Earth News completed an egg testing project. The testing found that, compared to official U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) nutrient data for commercial eggs, eggs from hens raised on pasture may contain:

• 1/3 less cholesterol
• 1/4 less saturated fat
• 2/3 more vitamin A
• 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids
• 3 times more vitamin E
• 7 times more beta carotene
