// Our Story
What started as a hobby over a dozen years 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, Silver Appleyard ducks, Brown and Buff African Dewlap Geese, Cotton Patch geese, and Midget White Turkeys. In addition to our poultry, we raise kunekune pigs, Netherland Dwarf rabbits, and Maine Coon cats.
We are a family operation on a small farm we share with our feathered friends, 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 do our best to provide help with: predator issues, containment, feed, watering, poultry resources, and anything else that pertains to our birds. It is so 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.
