Thanks for visiting!
We do our best to breed Quality Poultry. We raise Blue and Grey STEINBACHER Geese, Embden Geese, Bourbon Red "Heritage" Turkeys, Rouen Ducks and French Marans Chickens.
For a number of years we have been going to Poultry Shows in the fall to exhibit our birds and compete with breeders from all over the Country. At the latest Show, the "2011 Crossroads of America Poultry Show" in Indianapolis, two of our Embden Females took Best of Breed and Reserve Best of Breed. The same Best of Breed Goose went on to Champion Row and took Reserve Grand Champion Goose of the 351 Geese exhibited (see photo).
At the same show, we had a Qualifying Meet for the Blue Steinbacher Goose.
On October 30th, 2011 the Stein- bacher blue variety was accepted into the American Poultry Standard. This takes this foraging breed from being "exotic" to "mainstream".(the above photo shows a row of blue Steinbachers at the Qualifying Meet in Indianapolis waiting to be judged)
Farm Fresh Poultry:
Seasonally we grow French Colored Rangers and Heritage Chickens for meat. Those can be picked up freshly processed right from the farm. Please call to check on availability. We are not set up to ship. Farm pick up only, please!
Around Thanksgiving and Christmas freshly processed Heritage Turkeys are also available. It's best to reserve those ahead of time, since we have only a limited number available each year. Again farm pick up only, no shipping at this time!
December 27th, 2012 Processed Heritage Turkey Update: As of today there is only one 16 lb Bourbon Red Heritage Turkey left for your Holiday Dinner. We are charging $6.75 per pound processed. The turkey is ready for pick up now at our farm! If you are interested, please give us a call at 269-408-0282 to arrange a pick up time. Or for those of you who live in Michigan, we can also ship regular UPS ground service, which arrives the next day everywhere in Michigan except remote corners of the Upper Peninsula.
We are located 5 miles from exit 22 on I-94, six miles from Lake Michigan
Regarding Geese, we don't sell goslings or hatching eggs. All the geese we do have for sale are available in the fall. With advance notice, we can arrange for shipping geese, but prefer to deliver them at the Fall Poultry Shows we are attending.
Spring time is always very busy with the extra work of hatching and taking care of young animals. It is always very difficult for us to keep up with the flow of e-mails and requests. We are trying our best to answer them, but just don't have the time. Please be patient with us and if you can't wait for us to answer, please don't hesitate and call us. (click About us)
If you want to be on our e-mailing list for next spring , we'll be selling again Turkey Hatching Eggs and 1 day-old Poults from about April through June/July. Reserve your poults now since there is only a limited number available.
STEINBACHER POULTRY FARM is focused on breeding towards the American Poultry Standard, with keeping in mind vigor and productivity with each bird producing high-quality poultry and customer satisfaction - we will do everything we can to meet your expectations.
For those who live close to us we offer organic European Herbal Hay. Goats, Llamas and all ruminants absolutely love this type of hay. (We use it for our poultry in the winter as well in summer.)
