Grass Raised Chickens, Turkeys and Eggs - Free Range Forested Hogs (overview - what we raise/sell)
Whitehurst Farms uses rotational grazing and organic practices to raise chickens, eggs, turkeys and hogs in a way that mimics animals' natural patterns in nature. We believe in complete transparency in our artisan methods and how we care for our animals.
We sell our products directly to consumers through our membership program and direct sales available for pickup in Cypress, Texas. Several farm to table restaurants in the Houston area serve our products as a part of their menu. We also collaborate with local businesses who sell our products or incorporate them into their own offerings.

Our broiler (meat) chickens are raised on pasture where they reside in protective mobile pasture pens. The birds are moved to fresh grass daily. Their diet is supplemented with our custom ration of fresh milled Hiland Non-GMO feed. At times we start chicks and young birds on Coyote Creek organic feed. They result in a flavorful, full breasted vacuum-packaged weight of 3 - 5 pounds per bird.
Our egg laying hens free range on pasture and are moved to new pasture a minimum of once per week. Moving with them are their pasture houses which contain their roost, nest boxes and water system. Their diet is supplemented with our custom ration of fresh milled Hiland Non-GMO feed. At times we start chicks on Coyote Creek organic feed.
Free range turkeys are raised on pasture and supplemented with Coyote Creek organic feed from poult (day old turkey chick) until about 8 weeks old. We then supplement with fresh milled Hiland Naturals Non-GMO turkey rations. This is currently a seasonal item available in November and December. Whole turkeys range from 14 lbs. to 22 lbs. Also available are turkey breast, ground turkey and leg quarters.
Red Wattle Berkshire cross hogs raised free range in oak/pecan woodland areas where they are free to eat vegetation, root and exhibit their natural woodland instincts. Individual cuts as well as custom half or whole hog packages are available throughout the year.
