Complete feed for all layer hens past 16 weeks of age. GMO Free, High Protein Layer Feed is sold bulk, per pound, bring your own container.
GMO Free, High Protein Layer Feed is High Performance at 19% Protein, where most feeds are only 16%. The extra proteins are from alfalfa meal, a much higher quality protein that just soy. The amino acids gained in this feed are critical for optimum chicken health, and almost completely lacking in most feeds because of the cost, and labeling law does not require amino acids to be listed. This feed is a Fertrell formula.
All feeds we use and sell on the farm are NON-GMO Project Certified.
Our feed is ground fresh the day we pick it up and only enough for a month on the farm. This is extremely important to the health of the animal as after 30 days grain starts to oxidize and lose nutrients. Most bagged feeds at the store are 90 days old as soon as they are put on the shelf because of the logistical chain.
We purchase in bulk from a local grainery the purchases from Local Amish Farms. This is an extremely short distribution chain, uses no small bags, and we encourage customers to use reusable containers like buckets or trash cans. Because of all of this, our Carbon Footprint is extremely small, all the money stays local, and we are not subject to larger distribution chain problems like we saw in 2021.
Use our Food Grade Feed Buckets for easy “Take a Bucket, Leave a Bucket” swapping program. Just leave your empty bucket and take a full bucket!
