Pasturebird: Pasture-Raised Chicken

Pastured Poultry = chickens that live outside in a natural habitat (on grass, in the fresh air and sunshine with plenty of space to roam and forage). By rotating the chickens to fresh pasture every single day, Pasturebird chicken is not only healthy and delicious but also goes beyond sustainability to rebuild healthy, regenerative soils and grasslands.

The differences between our chicken and conventionally raised chicken are numerous. We use the term “Always Outside” to note the fact that our chickens don’t just have ambiguous “access to pasture”, but actually live outside on pasture 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Instead of debeaking the chicks, our birds use their beaks and talons to peck and scratch for bugs, worms, grasses, seeds, and more. Instead of using antibiotics to fight disease within the flock, we use a healthy environment of pasture, sunshine, fresh air, and space to prevent sickness. Instead of marketing vegetarian-fed chicken (chickens are not vegetarians), we want our chickens to eat as many bugs and worms as possible. And instead of hiding our farm from the public, we know that our best marketing is transparency, so we regularly open the ranch for tours and events.

The result? Real chicken. We could call it pasture-raised, free range, cage-free, local, beyond organic, humane, biodynamic, sustainable, regenerative, and more. But 100 years ago, it was just called chicken. Let’s rewind poultry production back a century and experience the rich flavor that can only come from chickens that live outside on pasture.

Pasturebird - Paleo Approved - Paleo FoundationIn early 2012, our family ordered 54 chicks to raise outside — on pasture, with fresh air, sunshine, and plenty of room to roam and forage. We had all battled various health issues including arthritis, excess body fat, allergies, etc and began to understand the instrumental role that eating real, quality foods play in healing the body.

During our quest to find more healthy food options, we soon realized that the chicken in grocery stores was being raised in a way that made us seriously question whether or not we felt okay about feeding it to ourselves and our children. So, we decided to raise our own. Much to our surprise, all 54 chickens pre-sold in just 2 weeks and we had accumulated a wait list of 110 families before we had even processed our first batch of birds.

Next month, we ordered 100 more and the same thing happened. Then 200, 500, 1,000, and so on. We decided to call our farm “Primal Pastures”, and quickly became one of the premier pastured livestock farms in Southern California, adding lamb, beef, pork, and more to our product offerings. We received an outpouring of support from the local real food community, selling direct to consumer through our online farm store and offering home delivery services.

We soon had hundreds of restaurant, grocery, meal prep, and other wholesale requests come through and sadly had to turn them all away due to limited supplies and distribution methods. We desperately wanted to work with many of these amazing chefs and purveyors, and in 2015 finally decided to make it happen.

We formed Pasturebird, Inc. in 2015 with the mission of providing the highest quality pasture-raised poultry to wholesale customers. With a focus on transparency, customer service, and top quality products, Pasturebird is the gold standard for operators who believe that chicken should be raised “Always Outside”, on lush green grass, with fresh air and sunshine replacing the antibiotics and vaccines that are the standard in poultry grow-houses.

Our farm is located an hour and a half from Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego, and we’d love to welcome you to meet your farmers and witness our operation in person.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.

 


Disclosures:

100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 


Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.

 


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 

 


 

Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
