Pasture Raised Chickens and Fresh Eggs

Graceful Acres Farm raises dual-purpose chickens on pasture and forest. We sell grown chickens and chicks from our farm in Pittsboro, North Carolina with driveway pickup by appointment only. If you'd like to learn more about the benefits of pasture raised vs cage raised big farm eggs, watch this interesting video from CBC in Canada, where they tested many different types of farm and commercially-raised eggs for nutrition. Small farm pasture-raised eggs had the highest nutritional value in their tests. The chicken breeds that we are currently growing include:

  • French Copper Maran
  • Black Australorp
  • New Hampshire Red

June 2023 update

We will be hatching limited straight run chicks through the fall. We can hold your birds for pickup with a small paypal deposit. We recommend reservations for next year to hold your birds.

Our birds are started in small pens with a coop, then moved and raised in large mobile electric pens on pasture. We feed them organic feed and non-gmo scratch that includes omega-3 and they run around enjoying pasture greens and bugs in the field. We rotate our birds to fresh ground regularly to maintain health and ensure a variety of fresh feed sources.

Chicken Pricing:

  • Chicks Straight Run $7
  • Hens-producing $45
  • Young Pullets $35
  • Roosters $10, or free with a hen purchase

We accept Paypal or cash payments.

Chicken Sales Policy

All chicken sales are final. Chickens are healthy at the time of sale. It is a good idea to separate your chickens when they are new, and allow them some time to adjust and be separate from your other birds. Our chickens are fed organic feed, non-gmo grain, weeds, vegetable scraps and healthy pasture greens and bugs.

Chicks are sold straight-run until they are old enough to be sexed accurately. For chicks that we hatch, they will be given the Mareks vaccine. For chickens that we sourced elsewhere, we can let you know the age and source of the bird, and if they were vaccinated. We have never had an outbreak of Mareks or other disease in our flock.

If pullets are producing, they may need to time adjust to continue the same productivity.

We are a small woman-owned farm. Buy local and support fresh produce and healthy livestock in your community!
