About

Wanting to raise a family in the region in which he grew up, George Jones purchased a chicken farm with his father-in-law, Chester McKim, in 1966. They converted to cage-free in 1995 and have been organically certified since 2004. George’s daughter, Dana Corbin, with her husband, Arney, and son, Denton, run the farm’s day-to-day operations. Their cage-free birds remain mostly indoors with some access to the outdoors. Their organic ranch allows birds access to indoor and outdoor roaming during the day, while returning to their barn at night. Their pasture-raised birds are allowed 24/7 access to the outdoors. 

Certification

Certified organic by Global Culture since 2006; Certified Humane Raised & Handled
