Our Farmers

Not long ago, farmers grew food to be flavorful and animals were raised with care. While we can’t go back to the past, we can write a new chapter for a future with food we can all feel good about feeding our families. Our company is rooted in the true stories of ranchers who raise animals on North American farms; chefs who believe in using simple ingredients to craft honest food; and families striving to eat well. Pull up a chair and experience our true stories.

Pitman Family Farms

Fresno County, California

Pitman Family Farms is a family-owned business that has been raising poultry for three generations in Sanger, California. Don Pitman began raising free-range turkey and chickens in 1954 and was soon joined by his son Rick. Today, Rick’s sons, David and Ben, carry on the family tradition.

From the beginning, the Pitman family has been focused on animal husbandry and welfare.

Their organic chickens have access to the outdoors with ample water and shade. Additionally, they have environmental enrichments, such as straw bales for pecking and eucalyptus tree branches for playing. The organic chickens are fed a certified organic vegetarian diet, free of genetically modified organisms and synthetic amino acids.
