Mindy Stiles

Ferrum Chicken Lady

 

Hi there! Let me introduce myself!
I’m Mindy Stiles, a relocated Iowan to Virginia.
I grew up on a farm in Iowa where we raised about 100 broiler chickens every year.
As I got older, I realized that store-bought

chicken doesn’t have the same flavor, texture,

or good taste as the chicken I grew up eating.
So I started looking for ways to have access

to chickens not raised inside a building.
Then we moved back to Virginia, to the land where my husband grew up and I found some great new farming friends. We raised about 100 broilers on pasture in 2019 and I decided

it was time to try a few more.
 

My goal is to raise chickens that taste better than the ones you buy at the store.

I’ve sourced a local feed mill where the farmer grows or knows all the producers of the grains.

 

These chickens are raised outdoors in the sunshine of southwest Virginia.

They are moved once to twice daily across the grass where they have access to bugs and grubs (in addition to feed).

The feed they do receive comes from right here

in Franklin County, Virginia

and is a non-GMO chicken feed.

Raising chickens on pasture is good for them

and good for the land.
