Highly recommend New Beginnings Poultry & Ducks for your next purchase!

I've had great success with her chicks and have nothing but positive things to say about her knowledge, friendliness, hard work, and dedication for the farming community.

-Fred

"Highly Recommend"

We sold our house and moved on to an acreage to be more self-reliant but found the information on the internet overwhelming. It was nice to come to New Beginnings Poultry & Ducks farm to learn in person how to butcher and package birds for our family. It was a great investment and they come highly recommended!
