Wow, it's been a minute since our last email to you. A lot has happened!

1) Kevin & Laura celebrated Christmass and the New Year with family. Nice break and opportunity to plan out this year.

2) Up to this point, we've been on leased land. It's time for us to find new property.😒🤔😅😥

3) We've ordered in this year's batch of chicken (800x for April 2023 fulfillment). 

4) One of our close friends and fellow producers is preparing to move. We have the opportunity to buy his pastured pork operation and provide you with the pork that is only suitable for our conscious neighbors. Preorder to help us in providing our own line of healthy, nutrient dense pork for you!

5) Working potential for a herd share with an organic dairy - fresh raw milk??? Details coming on Liquid Gold.

6) Preparing to attempt mail order delivery pilot. The ultimate in convenience for you!

7) Inflation, global politics, high overheads have finally caught up to us. We're raising prices by an average 2.5% to 5%. 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♂️


Back to item #2....😅

Due to unanticipated circumstances, our operation has stagnated since September. Due to these conditions, and in an effort to maintain positive relations with the land owner, we stagnated our production (impact to you), stopped our growth (impact to us), and called on a friend to move our operation onto his property, as a temporary solution. This is not ideal as we are essentially squatters. 😂🤣 

However, thanks to your support in us and your patronage, we were able to place a downpayment on 50-acres. Further, with the assistance from an Angel Investor (you know who you are), we're moving forward with the purchase. Pending any future hiccups, we should be able to close on the property by the end of February. 

However, this land purchase does affect our price points, causing us to ever so slightly raise our prices. This is an unfortunate occurrence, but necessary in our service to you.

The benefit of the land purchase means:

• increased and more reliable production rates for you;

• a future retail store front, pick up location, distribution point for mail orders;

• opportunity for you to visit the farm and experience the awe of agriculture production in synch with nature; 

• further diversification through pork (May) and beef (Fall). Why wait for the promotional when you can preorder now to reserve your harvest and support our sustainable growth;

The Egg Exhange - trade your compostables for eggs. Details coming later. 

To pull this off, we have to get big and get big quick. This cannot be done without your continued patronage. To help us in making this happen in your favor, prepare for a series of promotions. Or, you can beat everyone to it and place your order. The only way to guarantee the availability of your farm fresh eggs, woodland pork, freedom chicken, and Herd Share is to place the order now. Of note, these will be preorders with delivery later in the year. 


It's been busy for us! But we're excited for new opportunities, new challenges, and the ability to provide you Only the Best for Your Family and Ours!

Blessed Day,

Kevin & Laura Cory

Freedom Chicken - The Healthier Choice

FREEDOM CHICKEN - THE HEALTHIER CHOICEFreedom Chicken is the epitome of a pasture based production system and the most nutrient dense, cleanest chicken you can get in the area.All animals at Follow Me Land & Livestock are managed in a manner that captures processes found in Nature.  In an open range environment (Africa savanna, the Arctic North Slope of Alaska, the Great Plains) the flora and fauna rely upon an ever moving cycle of leader-follower animal activity.  The large ruminants (cattle, bison, wildebeest) are pressured by predators and the initial depletion of forage keeps these vast herds on the move.  Following behind the ruminant are birds.  These birds (omnivores) sanitize the fields and supplement their diet on the initial regrowth of grasses and forbs.  We use this natural cycle to our advantage resulting in an eating experience packed with nutrition.  When compared to non-pastured chicken, pasture raised chickens have the following nutritional benefits:91% more Omega 3 fatty acids52% less saturated fats (less bad fat)407% more Vitamin EWOW!!!! How is this possible?A Healthier ProtocolOur Freedom Chicken is truly free-range in open pastures to provide as natural of a setting as feasible. There are no buildings. There are no cages. There are no dirt pads. 62% more exposure to sunshine, fresh air, and fresh rain. The birds are provided a shade structure to protect them from the sun and predation to reduce stress.  We exceed industry standards of "free range" and "cage free" as found in the big box store to make the only stressful day the animal experiences occurs at the point of harvest. Because of the elimination of stress and rely upon pasture, we do not pump them with narcotics, vaccines, and hormones. Zero antibiotics, Zero drugs.Fresh grass.Free of Corn, Soy, and GMOsHealthier EnvironmentThe mimicking of natural systems calls for the animal being exposed to new, fresh forage each day.  The birds have the ability to glean 40%-60% of their diet from the environment.  Grass, forbes, weeds, insects, grubs, worms.  These feed sources provide a more balanced diet as the chicken gets to enjoy its innate antics (scratching & picking).  The DifferenceMany chicken products found at your local behemoth grocery store claim “free range.”  However, this is misleading as these birds are still housed in large, immobile buildings where a small door is made available to the birds.  But do the birds, housed in the 1000s, truly have the opportunity to fresh air?  No.Don’t believe me? I challenge you to visit and see the birds.Discover more:“Effects of free-range feeding on n-3 fatty acid and a-tocopherol content and oxidative stability of eggs,” Lpoz-Bote, C.J. et. al.
