Pasture Raised Chicken
Local: Living River Farms is located just east of Stevensville where all of our operations take place except for processing which happens down the road in Hamilton. We formulate and grind our own feed with grains sourced from a local family farm in Corvallis. Some of the places where our chicken is available:
Grocery Stores: Good Food Store, Missoula Fresh Market (both the Broadway and Reserve stores), Hamilton's Marketplace, and Bozeman Community Food Co-op
Restaurants: Tia’s Big Sky, Conflux Brewing Co., Rumour: Restaurant and Tap House.
Clark Fork River Market in Missoula
Pasture Raised: Living River Farm's chicken is so much more than free range. According to the USDA, the requirement for a chicken to be classified as free range or free roaming is that, “Producers must demonstrate to the Agency that the poultry has been allowed access to the outside.” Click here to read it on their website. Our pasture raised chickens are actually raised outside on pasture. The chicks are brooded indoors until they are old enough to go outside. They are moved out to pasture inside large movable structures for their safety from predators and the environment. The structures are moved at least daily so the chickens always have a clean environment, new grass to scratch, and bugs to eat. We want to be transparent, so if you have questions, feedback, or want to see our farm, please call or email us.
Natural: Our chickens never receive antibiotics, added hormones, or any chemical.
