Don’t be fooled by free ranged claims. The birds may have a little more space and access to the outdoors, but most of the time they are crammed in together tightly near their food and water. At Rathbun and Moore, we pasture our birds. They are outdoors for most of their lives and for most of the year.
And being outdoors, on the move around the pasture and the vineyard means our birds get fresh air, grass, weeds, and bugs to their hearts delight! Pastured farming is sustainable farming. The birds eat the grass, provide the fertilizer and help us improve the soil.
