Abra and her partner Chris grow and care for pasture raised game birds and specialty poultry.

Abra Morawiec | BIO

Before founding Feisty Acres, Abra & Chris acquired their farming chops working for a variety of different agricultural operations both domestic and abroad. Abra was first introduced to agriculture on a large scale while serving as a volunteer for the United States Peace Corps in Mali, West Africa. Chris spent time at Fort Hill Farm in Connecticut and worked on dairies in Alabama. It wasn’t until 2012, however, that Abra & Chris crossed paths as apprentices at a commercial organic vegetable farm on the North Fork of Long Island. While they worked together moving irrigation pipe, running tractor mounted transplanters, and harvesting vegetables for market, they shared their farm and business ideals and realized there was a lot in common between them. As they continued to work and manage other people’s farms, they couldn’t shake the idea of one day striking out on their own. And, inevitably as most good stories go, they fell in love.

Since 2015, Farmers Abra & Chris grow and care for pasture raised game birds and specialty poultry. It first began with quail, but has now expanded to include other species such as: French Guinea Fowl, Chukar Partridge, Silkie Chicken, heritage breed ducks, heritage breed chickens and various heritage breed turkeys. All birds live their lives on the North Fork of Long Island. They are also processed on Long Island and marketed directly by the farmers. The farm prides itself in offering the highest quality, best tasting game birds and eggs that you can get, well, anywhere. From chick to your plate, they’re there every step of the way
