They are always a topic of conversation with visitors at the farm, particularly because they are very attentive hosts: they welcome everyone who visits with a curious gaze and a walk around. But aside from the benefit of having fresh eggs, having chickens at the farm has its rewards. Chickens are pest control machines: they help reduce the population of a variety of species that can affect the crops. They also have a special ability to shred compost: they love to dig, scratch, search and eat, so a pile of compost can be turned and broken down in record time. But more than anything, they make great pets and companions.
Now you know, the next time you come to the farm, don’t forget to say hello to Sweet Potato and the rest of the flock! They too are working to give you the best produce available with passion and dedication.
