APPPA provides resources to pastured poultry farmers by providing provocative topics, technical insights, networking, and informed discussions.

Since launch, APPPA has focused on providing pastured poultry producers with the information and community needed to  successfully raise, process, and direct market their products. 

Not everyone who raises pastured poultry intends to earn money from their efforts, but those who do face extra layers of difficulties - regulations, processing shortages, and a confused marketplace.  APPPA launched the Pastured Poultry Conference in 2017 to bring producers together with the sole interest in sharing challenges, finding solutions, and innovating on the shoulders of our community members. 

Anyone who raises pastured poultry, whether for family only or for profit, will find value in APPPA.
