APPPA has been bringing producers together since they were founded as a
"clearinghouse for innovations and refinements to the pastured poultry
model" in 1997. APPPA is focused on raising pastured poultry for profit.
Key flock demographics of APPPA producers:
- The average annual broiler flock of our members is 1100; however,
actual flock size ranges from a couple hundred meat birds to a couple
- The average laying hen flock is 210 hens with a range of a couple dozen birds to several thousand hens.
- Producers direct market poultry and eggs via on-farm sales, farm markets, cooperative agreements, and wholesale markets.
Your support in APPPA enables the association to continue in it's
educational role, conduct and publish data on feeding trials, host field
days, attend trade shows, generate positive marketing for pastured
poultry, and continue to publish the bi-monthly Grit trade publication.
APPPA Grit Magazine
At 28 pages, our bi-monthly publication, the APPPA Grit is
growing from a newsletter into a magazine. Every other month, we
produce, publish, and mail our members-only magazine that's filled with
original pastured-poultry articles. The subject areas are diverse and
cover topics from the brooder to the plate for all poultry raised on
pasture (broilers, hens, turkeys, ducks, etc).
Each issue combines a mix of practical how-tos, research, opinions,
profiles, and topics that help you develop a long-term knowledge base.
This our keystone offering and it's available with all membership
