Farm Tours & Online Pastured Poultry School

Due to the amount of time it takes and because of the high demand, we now charge for all farm tours except customer tours.  We have different tour options below.  John also heads up an online pastured poultry production school where he teaches other farmers around the world how to raise pastured chickens using sustainable methods.  There is more information on that below as well.  For folks who pay for the online pastured poultry production school's full six week course, a farm tour is included at no additional charge if desired.  If you are interested in any of these tours, please contact us using the contact form above.


group tours

If you are interested in bringing a group of people to the farm for a tour, we charge $10 per adult and $5 per child.  These tours are given by some of the older McAuley kids who will walk you through the brooder operation, the pasture rotations, and finally processing.  They can answer just about any question you ask now.  These kids are good!


farmer tours

If you are a farmer wanting to see a large scale pastured poultry operation in action, this is the tour for you.  These tours are led by John and usually last 3-4 hours depending on how much information you want to cover and how many questions you ask.  We charge $250 for this tour but you can get it for free by signing up for the full 6 week online pastured poultry production school described below.  It is the same cost as the course so you might as well get both for the price of one!


Online pastured poultry production school (

John took his passion for farming and pastured poultry and turned it into the most comprehensive course available for raising pastured poultry as a profitable enterprise on a small farm.  The course is six weeks long and includes over 12 hours of instruction.  From time to time, there are smaller one session courses covering individual parts of the operation, like processing for example.  There is no other place you can get the level of detail covered in this course.  It is meant to take someone from knowing nothing about pastured poultry to having the confidence to start their enterprise.  Over 150 students from around the world have now attended one of these courses.  If you are interested, please visit to find out more.
