The Importance Of Our Standby Generator In Our Pastured Poultry Operation

Farming is a way of life, a passion, and for many, a means to make a living. At What The Cluck Farms, we understand the dedication and hard work that goes into producing quality pastured poultry and eggs for our community. However, there’s a silent hero that stands by our side, often overlooked but incredibly vital – the standby generator.

Powering Through Challenges

Farming, especially pastured poultry, is not for the faint of heart. It involves a constant cycle of caring for animals, nurturing the land, and responding to Mother Nature’s whims. We face many challenges, and one of the most unpredictable is power outages.

Our farm is nestled outside of Bryan and College Station, Texas, and we experience a wide range of weather conditions throughout the year. From sweltering summer heat to unpredictable storms, power interruptions are a common occurrence. When the power goes out, the consequences for a farm can be dire. Our electric fences that protect our pastured poultry go down, the fans in our brooders stop, and most importantly, our freezers and refrigerators cease to function.

Ensuring the Well-being of Our Flock

Our pastured poultry, the heart of our farm, relies on carefully controlled environments. For brooding chicks and maintaining the quality of our poultry and eggs, consistent temperature control is crucial. This is where our tractor-powered PTO generator, running on diesel, steps in as a guardian of our flock.

The generator is manually initiated upon power outages, ensuring that our freezers stay cold and our brooders remain warm.

Farm Resilience

Beyond immediate animal welfare, a standby generator provides us with something equally important: resilience. It means our farm can continue to operate smoothly even when external factors throw challenges our way. We can maintain our commitment to providing pastured poultry and eggs, irrespective of power interruptions. Our customers rely on us, and we, in turn, rely on our generator.

A Sustainable Approach

At What The Cluck Farms, sustainability is at our core. We take pride in practicing responsible farming, and our choice of a tractor-powered PTO generator reflects this ethos. While it runs on diesel, it provides us with enough power to run the entire farm without interruption. It’s an essential component of our mission to leave the land in better shape than we found it.


Farming for profit is about more than just caring for the land and raising animals; it’s about resilience, dedication, and a commitment to quality. Our standby generator is a testament to these values. It’s not just a machine; it’s a lifeline that helps us weather the storms, literally and figuratively. So, the next time you enjoy our pastured poultry or farm-fresh eggs, know that they’ve been nurtured and safeguarded with the help of this unsung hero.

In the unpredictable world of farming, one thing remains constant – our dedication to providing you with the best. With our standby generator by our side, we’ll keep the lights on, the brooders warm, and the poultry thriving.
