Consumer Guide to Pastured Poultry
Twenty years ago, when the American Pastured Poultry Producers Association was founded, knowing how pastured poultry differed from the conventionally-raised poultry was easy. As the integrity food movement has gained momentum, the gap between commodity and craft poultry has become a confusing marketplace of labels.
Pastured poultry require two things: access to grass (that's pasture) and frequent movement (rotation). Birds live outside as appropriate for the age of birds and the season of the year. There are many pastured poultry posers, and with a bit of guidance, you can learn how to spot them.
