American Farmer TV is proud to announce that it will feature Townline Poultry Farm (Townline) in an upcoming episode of the highly acclaimed TV series, airing fourth quarter 2016 and throughout early first quarter 2017, on RFD-TV. American Farmer airs Tuesdays at 8:00aET on RFD-TV. Check your local listings for more info.
Backed by more than 100 years of history in the industry, Townline was originally established as a cow farm. Due to the growing poultry industry, it quickly became a chick hatchery. Over the past 5-10 years, backyard flocks have been gaining in popularity and Townline has risen to help meet the demand for baby chicks.
This episode of American Farmer will explore how coops and additions to the hatchery have greatly changed the face of the farm. In addition, viewers will also lean about the “hands on” approach Townline uses to raise their breeder flocks of 50,000 hens.
“We are excited and honored to showcase the process of producing baby chicks and to highlight the benefits of raising your own backyard flock on the American Farmer TV series,” says John Geerlings, 4th generation owner of Townline Poultry Farm, Inc. “This is a great opportunity to educate poultry enthusiasts about what goes on prior to receiving their order of chicks.”
“It has always been and continues to be Townline’s goal to provide quality poultry with friendly, helpful service through using time tested techniques and applying new technology,” said Jennifer Tierney, Producer for American Farmer. “We look forward to enlightening our audiences on the topic.”
