Jim and Catie King manage a pastured poultry operation on the rolling hills of Oakley Farm, nestled in Warm Springs, Virginia. In addition, Fireside has started a small flock of Katahdin-Dorper hair sheep and has begun breeding Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs. All animals are rotationally grazed throughout the farm, utilizing the pastures and woods alike.
Pastured poultry being their mainstay, Jim and Catie steward their animals from infancy to adulthood. With the help of their community, they also process, package and distribute their poultry products within the Alleghany Highlands and neighboring counties. Counter to conventional poultry production, Fireside aims to operate transparently, humanely and at a sustainable scale directed at serving the local community. They are thrilled to be expanding their business to grass-fed lamb products and pastured piglets for sale.
