Our farming practices are beneficial for the land, the animals, the farmers and our customers. In everything we do, we think about what the ramifications will be several generations away.
Healthy Hen Farms is a family farming business based just outside of Oxford, North Carolina. The farm is just 30 minutes north of Raleigh and Durham and serves most of North Carolina either directly through the farm or one of their farm partnerships.
We are John and Betsie McAuley. We own and manage Healthy Hen Farms with lots of help from our six children, local family members, and great friends. We were some of the first apprentices under Joel Salatin on Polyface Farm way back in 1996. You can read more about us and the rest of the crew here.
We take great pride in producing the highest quality pastured poultry products in the greater Raleigh Durham area. Our farm is also one of the only farms you will find that is committed to feeding our birds 100% certified organic, soy-free, non-GMO feed in addition to what the chickens get from the pastures.
Our specialty is pastured poultry and we sell whole broilers as well as all the usual cuts including boneless skinless breasts, tenders, thighs, drumsticks, wings, backs/necks, feet, and organs. Whether you are a retail location, CSA, farm store, restaurant, or family, we can consistently provide top quality pastured chicken to meet your year round demand.
In addition to producing the highest quality, best tasting, healthiest food possible, we take great pride in the relationships we have with our customers. We believe in open and honest communication and the farm is always open for inspection by our customers. We farm in ways that are sustainable for the land, animals, farmers, and customers, and we invite all of our customers to observe that at any time.
Experience the satisfaction of knowing your farmer, knowing where your food comes from, knowing how it is produced, and contributing to a sustainable future for everyone. We hope you will join our farm family and we look forward to seeing you out at the farm soon!
