Pasturebird Shipping Policy and FAQs

What is Pasturebird?

Pasturebird is on a mission to revolutionize agriculture by applying modern technology to ancient farming methods and making pasture raised more accessible for everyone.


At Pasturebird, we believe the solution is in the soil. Regenerative practices restore, rather than deplete the planet. It is our vision to revolutionize farming from a man-made system of depletion back to a natural ecosystem of perpetual regeneration and replenishment; a genuine regenerative future - first for poultry, for people and ultimately the planet. Because healthy soil traps significantly more carbon, regenerative agriculture could be the key to helping stop climate change. Unfortunately, regenerative and pasture raised are loosely defined, making loopholes in raising practices commonplace. Pasturebird is uniquely transparent in its raising practices so you can witness first hand their commitment to the people, the planet, and the animals. 


“We believe in farming for the next generation. That’s why soil health is at the center of everything we do.  We see soil as more valuable than gold and so rich soil is the legacy we leave.” - Farmer Paul


With Pasturebird, you can really taste the difference. But, don’t take our word for it.  Our chickens contain three times more Omega 3, vitamins and minerals than other chickens with housing that moves daily to give them the freshest grass available. Using floorless mobile coops, every one of our chickens is moved to fresh pasture every day.  When you allow the chickens to live a good life on fresh pasture and under the warmth of the sun the way nature intended, it is no wonder you see such an incredible result. Because you can’t regenerate soil in a petri dish, we must do the work to restore our habitat. The future of our planet depends on the regeneration of our soil that a truly pasture raised chicken provides.


Please enjoy Pasturebird from our home to yours.

How does Pasturebird raise their chickens?

Pasturebird’s chickens are truly pasture-raised. Many other pastured chickens are simply grown in a traditional house with the doors kept open (referred to as “outdoor access” or “pasture access”). Pasturebird uses a floorless coop that moves every single day to a fresh spot where the birds can (as Joel Salatin says) “Fully Express their Chicken-Ness.” 


Pasturebird does not use any antibiotics, hormones or drugs, instead approaching animal wellness holistically and focusing on fresh air, diet, and exercise to bolster the immune system and fight viruses naturally.


Pasturebird’s regenerative practices of keeping the soil covered, minimizing soil disturbance, maximizing crop diversity, maintaining living roots year round and mobile livestock grazing restore rather than deplete the planet. Because healthy soil traps significantly more carbon, regenerative agriculture is critical in mitigating climate change. 


We stand by the quality of each and every Pasturebird.  In fact, we even offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for 30 days from time of purchase.  So, you can purchase and give it a try without any hassle.

 

Is Pasturebird good for the Planet?

Yes!  Our chickens move to fresh pasture daily in a way that gives them all the benefits of being on pasture while being protected from predators, and also allows for consistent and even distribution of manure. The result is humane, sustainable and regenerative, and chickens that don't stink - birds pecking and scratching on fresh pasture while their poop is used as an asset to build soil health and regenerate grasslands.

 

What is Pasture-Raised?

Truly pasture-raised chicken is a label reserved for chickens that primarily live outside and roam freely on grass pastures. These chickens have access to shelter but forage on natural grasses, seeds, bugs and grubs for the majority of their lives. Packed full of rich flavor and nutrients, these chickens are higher in omega-3s as well as vitamins A, D, and E, and lower in fat than most any other chicken.
