- Sustainable chicken farming practices are good for the environment, and pasture raised chicken is one of the most sustainable methods.
- Chicken meat from chickens fed on pasture is more nutritious.

Circle C Farm is committed to providing healthy, delicious chicken that has been raised on pasture. We believe that pasture raised, free range chickens should be able to roam and forage, resulting in a more natural and healthy lifestyle. Not only is this better for the chickens, but it also results in a tastier and more nutritious product for the consumer.
Free range pasture raised chicken and poultry are significantly lower in calories and fat than factory-farmed chicken that often lands at your local fast food joint. In addition, it also contains higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins A and E. Pasture raised chicken has a more complex flavor than its factory-farmed counterpart. When you support Circle C Farm chicken, you can rest assured knowing that you are eating a healthier product that was raised ethically.
Raising Pasture Raised is a Healthier Alternative
Chickens raised on pasture both scavenge for food and improve the land. When they're allowed to roam outdoors, they can eat nutrient-rich items such as insects, worms, grass, and seeds. This provides them with extra vitamins and minerals that wouldn't otherwise be available. When pasture raised chickens are allowed to forage freely, they provide natural fertilizer in the form of manure.
Did you know that chicken manure is an excellent fertilizer for gardens? While it is too strong to be used directly on plants, it improves the moisture retention of soil and enriches it with microorganisms. Pasture-raised chickens live off the land, and their manure helps renew pasture so the cycle can begin anew. This is one reason you'll see Farmer Nicole and her team rotating their livestock on their pastures out in Florida.
The health benefits of pasture raised chicken are numerous, but there are also some environmental advantages to this method of farming. Chickens that spend time outdoors have a reduced carbon footprint. They don't require the same amount of energy to live as those kept indoors.
Circle C Farm truly defines what a vertically integrated farm is in the year 2022. The “cycle of life" approach of rearing animals takes sustainability to a new level: it's not only sustainable but also regenerative, which means that raising chickens on pasture rejuvenates the land rather than depleting it. Unlike industrial farming, which uses land only to produce a commodity, regenerative agriculture is concerned with both the health and long-term preservation of the landscape.
Many of our long-time customers have told us about the significant health improvements after adding pasture raised to a whole-foods, paleo diet consisting of pasture raised poultry and meat. Circle C Farm's pasture raised poultry is like nothing you've tasted before, and the truth is, you'll really FEEL a big difference, too.
At Circle C Farm, we go above and beyond to give our meat chickens the best possible life. They are given access to a new pasture every day so that they can graze, as well as natural nutrients from insects, worms, seeds, nuts, and grasses - everything that chickens need to thrive. Pasture raised chickens are, of course, healthier. As a result, in the end, we can provide our customers with meat that is naturally raised and free of pesticides, antibiotics, and hormones.
