Come say "Hi" to the chickens! McPhetridge Family Farm is providing a service and program for consumers to try out chicken ownership. They provide everything needed for the rental of the chickens, a movable chicken tractor, and feed for the rental period. McPhetridge Family Farm raises chickens, goats, rabbits, and livestock as they strive to become self-sufficient while teaching others to do the same.
At Heights at La Salle Apartments in Durham, North Carolina, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
