The Stone Family
Laetus Pullus Farm started in 2009 when we decided to grow a large garden, purchase laying hens, and grow chickens for meat in order to know where our food was coming from. We feel that by eating off our land, we are eating more nutrient dense food than what is offered at the grocery store. We farm using organic practices and raise our chickens on pasture. Starting out, we raised just enough for the four of us but quickly learned that our friends and neighbors wanted farm fresh produce and meat too! So we now grow enough food to feed ourselves, preserve for winter, and extra for our customers.
