Miller Poultry is truly an “egg-to-table” operation. All of our chicks are hatched at our family-owned hatchery and placed within our community of more than 180 local farm families. We own our own feed mills which process the feed – a corn and soybean meal mixture supplemented with vitamins and minerals. There are NO animal by-products, artificial colors, hormones, or additives.
We also take animal welfare very seriously. We work with and adhere to the Global Animal Partnership (GAP) standards and have since the program was initiated. All of our chickens are raised to Step 2 standards. We also allow our organic chickens outdoor access. We believe in taking animal welfare a step further and allowing our birds to have more natural light than required, more space per bird in barns, and outdoor access in organic barns.
In addition, we believe in the Five Freedoms: freedom from hunger and thirst; freedom from discomfort; freedom from pain, injury, and disease; freedom to express natural behavior; and freedom from fear and distress.
Animal welfare is not just something we do, but is engrained into who we are as a company.
