2 Men & A Hen is owned and operated by Ryan and Christopher Thatcher with extensive help from our family and friends. We are both full-time nurses with a passion for living and growing beings. Ryan is a Navy Reservist who has served for over 6 years and been deployed twice. We love knowing where our food comes from and the peace of mind that comes with knowing it was raised humanly and respectfully. Our farm may seem a little crazy to you but it makes perfect sense to us. We have chosen each breed with sale-ability, hardiness, and temperament in mind. Small family farms in our day and age struggle to survive when they operate within the same systems and mindsets as industrial sized farms. We have chosen a more traditional type of farming with the goal of not competing with industrialized farms. 2 Men & A Hen straddles several different markets catering to the homestead family of today and the future. We utilize technology where needed and are not afraid of learning from our big brothers in the industrial farming market but understand the importance of not following in their footsteps.
