Coyote Creek Organic Chicken Feed Now Available for Sale
at Whole Foods Market Stores Throughout the South
Backyard poultry enthusiasts will have access to organic chicken feed
Elgin, TX (June 3, 2014) – Chickens across the South can eat Coyote Creek organic chicken feeds starting this month. Whole Foods Market stores across the south region are now carrying Coyote Creek certified organic chicken feeds in 20-pound bags: Chick Starter, Pullet Developer, Layer, Soy-Free Layer, and Hen Scratch. Coyote Creek Organic Feed Mill produces the highest quality, certified organic feed for customers seeking the best for their hens.
Backyard poultry enthusiasts will now have the option of feeding their chickens a nutritious, well-rounded feed that stands apart from the others. Coyote Creek livestock feeds are 100% USDA Certified Organic; they never contain GMOs, chemical residues, pharmaceuticals, or hormones; all ingredients are sourced in North America with a focus on locally grown grains; and their feed is milled fresh to order.
Anecdotal evidence demonstrates that animals fed Coyote Creek organic feeds yield better results: increased egg production rates, healthier and better-behaved animals, better-tasting eggs, and improved soil quality in chicken yards.
People experience the benefits as well. Eating eggs that are produced with organic feed eliminates the risk of consuming GMOs and chemicals that are used in conventional agriculture. Families and individuals across the South can feed their backyard chickens by hand without risking exposure to residual toxins that are present in conventional and “all-natural” feeds made from conventionally-grown grains. Feeding livestock organically means healthier animals, healthier soil, and safer food for all of us.
“Our goal is to give backyard chicken owners a chance to feed their chickens organically, thereby supporting organic production all the way back to the farm where the grains were grown,” says Stephen Corradini, Vice President of Purchasing for Whole Foods Market South Region. “We are proud to partner with Coyote Creek in the movement to increase organic production on farmland throughout the South and consequentially to strengthen rural agricultural economies.”
Feeding guides, feeder design guides, and ingredient lists can be found on Coyote Creek Organic Feed Mill’s website. To find the nearest Whole Foods Market store, visit CoyoteCreekFarm.com
