A couple working six months per year for 50 hours per week on 20 acres can net $25,000-$30,000 per year with an investment equivalent to the price of one new medium-sized tractor. Seldom has agriculture held out such a plum. In a day when main-line farm experts predict the continued demise of the family farm, the pastured poultry opportunity shines like a beacon in the night, guiding the way to a brighter future.
This hands-on book covers everything from taking care of day-old chicks to marketing your four-pound broilers. It will teach you about the benefits of pasture, choosing a breed, starting chicks, pen and pasture details, processing, common problems, marketing, and more.
