Coriander Fields

“Coriander Fields is a family farm dedicated to raising animals on pasture.”

“Our chickens are raised with care and respect; given free access to pasture where they can run, scratch the earth, stretch their wings, and catch all the grasshoppers they want. They also receive a GMO-free grain ration. The results are healthy birds which make healthy, flavorful meat that “tastes like chicken” with a firm, yet tender texture you can’t find at the grocery store.”

“Managing Coriander Fields is a family affair as our three sons are alongside us every day collecting eggs, moving the animals and checking fences. Even our youngest’s first word was “bok-bok” instead of “ma-ma” or “da-da”.

“You’ll taste the difference that our high-standards produce. All of our animals are fed with all natural non-gmo feeds and cared for at the highest levels of animal welfare standards. We’re proud to be your farmers and bring the best of regenerative agriculture to the Edwardsville area.”
