Note from the editor
From heritage breeders to market gardeners; from eggs to broilers; from backyard chickens to commercial producers; The Poultry Site is looking for farmers!

As you know, we’re relaunching The Poultry Site (help us out by taking a quick survey), and we could use your insight to bring you a platform which caters directly to your poultry needs and wants.

Do you have something to say about Brexit? What about NAFTA? Do you face extreme temperatures in your area? We want to hear about it– and if we can, we’d love to come and see you, your farm and your birds to learn about the challenges you face and the innovative ways you’re rising to meet them as the world’s demand for food increases with its demands on those who produce it.

Get in touch with our editor if you’ve got a story to share, an interesting idea, questions or answers! We’d love to hear from you.

Thanks always for reading
