Farm ID: WDRP
Our chickens spend night in their temperature controlled house at night to protect them from predators. They also stay indoors when the weather is hazardous. See the black coils on the side? That is their a/c unit keeping it cool inside!
Our farmers are proud to partner with us. They have full ownership and independence when raising their flocks. Every farm has a farm sign for farmers to proudly hang.
Space to Roam
Our chickens have way more space to roam since their flocks tend to have less birds on each farm. With space to move freely, we usually see our chickens moving up and about.
Every morning, farmers open the doors of the chicken house. Parts of the flock will make their way out for the day.
After a long, wet winter, spring bursts from the softened ground into thick, bright turf, perfect for a new flock of chickens to scamper about on. You’ll find the Wengers’ beautiful farm, West Dry River Poultry, between Dayton and Paul State Forest, adjacent to Dry River.
Family is everything to this farming duo, and it’s a good thing they have help from nearby family members, the Zimmermans, along with their kids Jacob and Janessa, and of course, their pups Ozzy and Cooper. It takes many hands to milk and feed 150 cows, tend to calves and horses, maintains the garden, house, and fields, keeps up with repairs, and care for two houses of chickens.
During downtime, the family loves to fish at the pond, ride horses, and put their feet up around a campfire.
