POULTRY and ORCHARDS
We have layers and ducks pasture under our fruit trees, which adds nutrition into the soil and nutrition into our poultry by allowing them to eat a more natural, free ranging diet. The poultry also eat harmful pests and keep weeds down.
Cobble Hill soil is deficient in nitrogen, calcium and zinc, the exact nutrients that chicken manure is high in.
And there is no risk to anyone eating the fruit, as the manure is never in contact with the fruit and no fruit below 2' (where poultry may be able to reach them), are sold.
Pasturing poultry is great for the fruit and poultry at the same time. A marriage made in heaven.
Our eggs and poultry are not organic, but are fed a Top Shelf Feeds original layer diet, (not a Certified Organic feed). Sadly, the price became 3x more than standard feed and we could no longer continue to offer our customers an organically grown product.
