Asha, Amberglen Beer Garden
I visited an urban farm that has an amazing vegetable garden, and of course, chickens. This is my friend Asha, who owns and manages the Amberglen Beer Garden. She is telling us where her chickens will be ranging next.
When Asha wants to free range her chickens, and yet keep them safe, she uses a moveable large cage that she and her husband, Rick, have built. This cage does not have a bottom and can be moved all over the garden to let the chickens turn over the soil in-between growing seasons to rid the ground of larva that could become a pest in her organic garden.
The chickens go back in their large stationary coop at the end of their day.
