Griffin Family Farms
My husband Lee and I are very blessed to have six children: Keegan, Gracie, Tyson, Aaden, Alex and Eli. Lee and I were both born and raised in the agriculture world in Plant City, Florida. As a young child I started in 4H and then moved into FFA and I looked forward to the days when my children could experience the same. My first born started in 2002 in 4H and 11 years later we are still showing dairy cows and heifers. 4H and FFA has taught our children great responsibility and has given us family time and a lot of wonderful memories.
Our Cornish Cross Chickens are a cross between Cornish Hens and White Rock Roosters. They are moved to fresh pasture daily via open air pens on wheels. They eat a chemical-free feed ration of corn, oats, soy (just 10%), alfalfa, and fish meal which is high in protein. In addition to bugs and critters in the pasture’s soil, they also eat naturally organic feed containing minerals and probiotics. Our chickens are chemical-free, hormone-free, steroid-free, and anti-biotic free.
Processed on the farm using humane kosher practices, then frozen solid, we sell chickens per guidelines of P.L. 90-492 Producers/Growers USDA Exemption. FYI, Public Law 90-492 is the 1957 Wholesome Poultry Products Act. It’s the federal law that requires poultry to be slaughtered in a USDA-approved facility if you’re going to sell them to anyone else. There’s an exemption to 90-492 that says you can do on-farm processing and sales (and not need USDA inspection) if you do less than a certain number per year. Per Florida Dept. of Agriculture these birds are labeled NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION.
We want you to know that we are committed to producing the best quality products from our farm!
NOTE from Market Manager: When you receive your frozen bird, we advise you to store it deep in your freezer where there is little-to-no air current. If you store the bird in the door of your freezer it can get freezer burned and this can impact its post-thawed quality. Frozen raw chickens should be used within 12 months, according to the United States Department of Agriculture. SOURCE: www.livestrong.com
