// Our Story
What started as a hobby over a decade ago has developed—through study, observation, research, and many, many trials and errors—into what is now Thornfield Poultry. Our focus is bird health and breed quality in a supportive and humane environment. We raise Black Copper Marans chickens, White Marans chickens, Silver Appleyard ducks, and Brown and Buff African Dewlap Geese.
We are a family operation on a small farm we share with our feathered residents, giving them plenty of attention and care. Our birds live in three environments, each with plenty of fresh water, shade and large enclosed coops: 1) Unfenced pastureland and woodlands; 2) A large fenced fruit orchard, where the birds enjoy apples, peaches, pears, grapes, and plums (often before we do!); and 3) An substantial enclosed area that encompasses a spring-fed pond, more fruit trees, and plenty of shade trees.
At Thornfield Poultry, we raise and sell birds only of the quality that we would want to purchase. We value honesty, integrity, and fairness and try to realize these values in everything we do, especially with our customers. If you choose to purchase from Thornfield Poultry, you become part of our extended family and we will do everything in our power to provide quality poultry at a reasonable price. And as one family member tries to help another, we will try provide help with: predator issues, containment, feed, watering, poultry resources, and anything else that pertains to our birds. It is important that we share our experiences and help each other.
Little in life is as fulfilling as raising your own chickens, going to the henhouse, gathering eggs, and sitting down to a meal provided by your own flock.
