Freedom Ranger™ Hatcheries – Family- & Eco-friendly Chicken Raising
Freedom Ranger™ Hatchery is a family-owned and operated hatchery located in Lancaster County, PA. Owners Kendall & Ginger Fox started the business to expand the offerings of JM Hatchery, owned by Ginger’s father Joel Martin. Kendall first began hatching chickens as an employee for JM Hatchery in 2005.
Kendall and wife Ginger, started hatching silkie chicks in their two-car detached garage with the intent of eventually moving into a bigger facility. That happened in August 2007, when Kendall moved the operation to its current location and started hatching the Freedom Ranger™ Broilers. In 2009, Kendall purchased the Freedom Ranger brand and incorporated the business under the name Freedom Ranger Hatchery, Inc.”
Freedom Ranger™ Hatchery maintains its own breeding stock of our Freedom Ranger™ and GMO-Free Parent chickens. Our family farm is dedicated to traditional, sustainable and environmentally-friendly farming methods that produce high-quality chickens for our customers.
Raising your own chickens is an excellent way to teach your children many life lessons, including responsibility and care for another being, as well as having a sustainable food source and your own organic fertilizer for your garden! Freedom Ranger™ Hatcheries offer a number of breeds of chicks that are excellent for free ranging.
From your childhood, you may recall the rich taste of farm fresh eggs, with a deep yellow-orange yolk, which were available in supermarkets in the 1950s and ‘60s. Today’s supermarket eggs are anemic by comparison. If you raise your own Freedom Ranger™ chickens, you will be pleasantly surprised at how rich and delicious their eggs are and might transport you back to Sunday family breakfasts of long ago.
