UNDER COVER

Grow cover crops to reduce soil erosion, control weeds, add nutrients to the soil and, oh, feed your flock!
Chickens feast on harvested artichoke hearts at Templeton Valley Farm.

Growing cover crops offers many benefits, including reducing soil erosion, controlling weeds, adding nutrients to the soil and reducing soil compaction. Chicken farmers can receive double benefits when they supplement their flocks’ feed with cover crops the chickens like to eat.

Whether your chickens are in an enclosed pen or free-range in an open pasture, growing cover crops provides a low-impact, environmentally friendly way to supplement your chicken’s feed that’s sustainable and economical. Chickens eat all daylong, so give them something good to eat with a variety of cover crops that offer a diverse menu of nutrient rich food for your foraging flock.

If you can’t free-range your chickens, bring the free-range to their pen.
