Since 2015, Farmers Abra & Chris grow and care for pasture raised game birds that are certified organic by NOFA-NY. It first began with quail, but has now expanded to include other species such as: French Guinea Fowl, Chukar Partridge, Silkie Chicken, and heritage breed turkeys. All birds live their lives on the North Fork of Long Island, are processed and packaged locally in Mattituck, and marketed directly by the farmers. The farm prides itself in offering the highest quality, best tasting game birds and eggs that you can get, well, anywhere. From chick to your plate, they’re there every step of the way.

In the spring of 2016, Feisty Acres began their Bobwhite Quail Release Program with the intention of helping to re-invigorate the native population of Northern Bobwhite Quail. The farm holds release events multiple times through the year and reaches out to local community members and organizations that are interested in working with the program. Along with raising and releasing these native birds, Abra & Chris also emphasize the importance of managing land that promotes natural habitat for Bobwhites and bringing to light the issues facing these birds such as urban over-development and loss of genetic diversity.

What is your ultimate meal? Anything smoked. As you might imagine, we have smoked all of our birds at one point or another and there is something so simple and satisfying about the process. Our favorite bird to smoke is our quail, closely followed by turkey. What three things are always in your pantry? Pickled quail eggs, pinto beans, dried or preserved fruits. If you weren't a chef, what would you be? While Chris cannot imagine being anything but a farmer Abra would pursue the career of a large animal veterinarian. If you could cook with anyone, who would that be? We're both huge fans of Ina Garten.
