Our Journey

We moved to our farm in Fall of 2019 and it's changed a lot since then, but things are ramping up as we plant our first big garden, grow our flocks, and add new members to the farm. 

We invite you to subscribe to our channel for updates and fun on the farm!

Quality poultry from our homestead to you

We are the Head family, 

the owners and 3 person team (ok, maybe two and a half) operating The Head Family Farm, a homestead hatchery. We have a love of poultry which evolved into starting a registered Alabama hatchery in 2020. We have a passion for genetics and sharing as we grow.

 

What is a Homestead Hatchery?

Our small scale hatchery is located at our home and is part of our daily lives. We spend personal time with our flocks each day.

 

What makes you different? 

We are a no kill hatchery. Many large hatcheries euthanize male chicks when they go un-purchased. On our farm, all are given the chance to grow up, find new homes, join our breeding programs, or are harvested to nourish our family. Knowing where our protein comes from is a special part of having a homestead hatchery. 

 

JOIN OUR COMMUNITY

The homesteading community is a vibrant one, full of encouragement and minds hungry to share and learn. We hope you'll join our Instagram, Facebook or YouTube communities! We love seeing updates from those who've added our chickens to their flocks too!
