Joyce Farms was started in 1962 by Alvin Joyce and is still a family-owned business today, with Alvin’s son, Ron Joyce, and his two sons, Ryan and Stuart, at the helm. They are located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and most of their partner farms are also located in the Carolinas, Georgia, and Virginia. Joyce Farms has come a long way since the company was founded in 1962. They've gone from just selling chickens to raising the very best all-natural poultry, beef and game for the top chefs, artisanal butchers, and educated consumers across the U.S.
Over the years, their knowledge of raising poultry grew. They wanted to supply the top culinary markets with the taste, texture and culinary advantages of superior birds, raised with no pesticides, animal by-products, hormones, growth stimulators or antibiotics EVER. Today they do just that. It’s what they call Naked Chicken, and it’s the finest all-natural domestic chicken for sale in America.
They use Regenerative Agriculture methods, including complex cover crops, planned rotational grazing, and no chemicals or tillage, to produce flavorful, nutritious proteins, while protecting animal welfare and restoring health to the soil.
