Our Values

Free to be.

FreeBird chickens are free to roam in barns that are more spacious that those used by traditional poultry farmers. They’re free to eat and drink on their schedules, not ours. And their vegetarian diet is completely and totally free of animal byproducts and extenders. In fact, FreeBird chickens dine on a proprietary recipe of clean ingredients, with plenty of fresh well water.

FreeBird Chickens are also always antibiotic free. That means they have never ever been given antibiotics. And that’s an important distinction.

Stress-free livin’.

Of course, with freedom come responsibilities. So, in addition to our commitment to a humane and stress-free environment for our chickens, we also believe we have a responsibility to our environment, thus our commitment to sustainable farming and the long-term survival of family farms.

The FreeBird philosophy is not about taking the easiest, nor the cheapest, route. Roomy houses, vegetarian diets, and antibiotic-free practices, are about doing things the right way–for the chickens, for the future, and for our customers.

What does this mean to you? Healthier and better tasting chicken. Because chickens raised free of drugs have better flavor. So you’re free to serve and enjoy a more natural and delicious chicken–guilt free.

Free from worry.

Every time you select FreeBird chicken, you are putting your trust in us. We want you to know that we work every day to keep your trust.  Our multi-pronged food safety program includes training, written policies, ongoing inspections and 3rd party audits.

It’s our way of being sure we get requested again and again.

Oldies but goodies.

Sometimes the old standards are the best. Take sustainability, for example. When you farm in Amish country, you appreciate the importance of sustainability—after all, it has been a way of life for generations. We understand that keeping the land healthy and productive is important to our animals, our team members and our communities.

We take steps every day to maintain and improve our sustainability practices. For example, we compost animal wastes thereby enriching our soil, reducing agricultural runoff, and protecting our water supply. And we use eco-friendly packaging, which reduces our carbon footprint, both in landfill space, and by reducing fuel costs during transit.

So to all those companies who are just now getting around to sustainability, we say, “Glad you’ve finally hopped on the bandwagon.”
