Our chickens are raised in micro-broods of 500 birds. They live in open-air, floorless schooners that are moved daily to fresh pasture and are fed GMO-free.
Raise the chickens
Natural State Processing Company opened its doors in August of 2016, but the idea for the business was conceived well before we processed our first birds. A joint venture between Cypress Valley Meat Company and Grass Roots Farmers’ Cooperative, Natural State was established to fill an increasingly large gap in the market for high quality, small-scale, humane poultry processors.
Our cooperative is owned by the small-scale farmers who raise its livestock. Grass Roots connects the pasture to the plate. Our meats are essentially delivered straight from our farms to your front door. This short supply chain allows us to be radically transparent and makes it easier to shop for than products of comparable quality.
