Free Range Life
The birds have access to the great outdoor with plentiful shade structures and enrichments to keep them safe and engaged.

We believe in protecting farms and preserving this way of life for generations to come!
The Shenandoah Valley
Farming is hard work, but a beautiful view like this certainly helps.
There’s hardly a place in the Alleghenies that’s quite as pretty as Franklin, West Virginia, and that’s especially true of the Heatwole’s farms. Embraced by undulating hills and winding roads sit two chicken houses where Bradley (brother of our own Corwin Heatwole) and Linette tend their flock. Bradley got his start in poultry farming as a part of the family business. Now a father himself, Bradley appreciates how easily poultry farming and raising a family can coexist, something Farmer Focus strives to achieve. The flexible hours and fair pay ensure that Bradley and Linette’s children are able to participate, learning the ins and outs of farming to carry the family farm into future generations. He loves being his own boss and states, “You get what you put into it.” Judging by all the hard work invested into the farm daily, he couldn’t be more right.
