Book Excerpt from the Pastured Poultry Introduction:

Is Pastured Poultry for You? Perhaps you own a few acres of land that you'd like to "just do something with," or you have a family farm that you would like to diversify. Pasture poultry can be raised on very small acreage, either as an independent operation or as an integrated piece with other farming ventures, such as a market garden or grazing ruminants. Poultry can be raised for family consumption only, or as a profit making venture. The size of your operation, efficiencies, and time put into marketing are the primary things that will distinguish a commercial pastured poultry operation from a home operation, but much else will remain the same. Whether you raise 50 or 50,000 birds a year, many of the same concepts hold.
