We consider chicken our specialty. As you know, our chickens are Certified Organic by NOOA, Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World, and raised outdoors on beautiful pasture. But that’s not all… We also raise a slower-growing breed called Freedom Rangers; these lead a more healthy and active life than typical excessively-fast-growing industrial chickens and are therefore much more flavourful and healthy on the plate. And this year, for the first time, our chicks come from non-GMO parent flocks!
We are very pleased to announce that this year we are starting with chicks from a breeding flock that is raised with non-GMO feed. We are super excited that our hatchery has taken this step forward, and are willing to spend more to jump on board so that they can support farms and feed mills making better choices. As consumers, we have the power to demand more from the businesses we patronize, and when they take a leap to offer a better (and yes, more expensive) choice, it is our responsibility to vote ‘YES!’ with our dollars.
You may choose to purchase food from us as an investment in your health, but you are accomplishing so much more than a healthy diet — you are investing in a healthier planet. Just like you, Spray Creek Ranch as a business is a conscientious consumer, and we go beyond the standards our certifications require to support businesses and practises that match our uncompromising ideals. As an organic farming peer recently said in response to learning that we opt for soy-free feed for our chickens and pigs: “F*@k you’re ethical.”
Everything you purchase from us is a vote for a better way of farming, and we are conscious to pass those dollars along to other businesses who are doing their best to work towards a better tomorrow.
What I’m trying to say is thank you! Thank you to all our customers, new and old. We know we’re not the cheapest choice, but you know we’re the best choice. Together we can build a better world, one roast chicken at a time.
