Farming status, plans, and practices

Since 2015, Farmers Abra & Chris grow and care for pasture raised game birds and specialty poultry. It first began with quail, but has now expanded to include other species such as: French Guinea Fowl, Chukar Partridge, Silkie Chicken, heritage breed ducks, heritage breed chickens and various heritage breed turkeys. All birds live their lives on the North Fork of Long Island. They are also processed here on Long Island and marketed directly by the farmers. The farm prides itself in offering the highest quality, best tasting game birds and eggs that you can get, well, anywhere. From chick to your plate, they're there every step of the way.
