MacFarlane Pheasants Inc. grows most of its white meat pheasants on Wolff Farm in Belleville, WI. Up until last March, the farm owner, Greg Wolff, raised the birds as a contract grower. We would bring day-old chicks from our hatchery in Janesville, WI, and Greg would raise them to 12-14 weeks until they were ready for processing. Read More »

MacFarlane Pheasants has been selling wholesale pheasants since 1960. We started processing pheasants weekly in 1988 as the sales and interest in serving pheasant grew. Now, we process fresh pheasants twice a week, and in a typical year, we harvest up to 250,000 pheasants for meat. We ship our products across the United States, Canada, Mexico, and occasionally overseas to Japan. Chances are, if you are eating at a restaurant and order a pheasant entrée, it will be a pheasant from our farm on your plate! Read More »

How do you prepare for winter weather at your house? We have been cutting wood, bringing the lawn furniture inside, placing deterrents for mice around our exterior, changing furnace filters, etc. Winter in Wisconsin can be bitterly cold and snowy, and preparation for the weather is essential for Wisconsin homeowners and businesses. Trudy DeRemer, our Research Manager at MacFarlane Pheasants, agreed to share her process for preparing our Research barns for winter in Wisconsin. Read More »

The plan for shipping our mature pheasants from MacFarlane Pheasants begins with our customers confirming their yearly bird numbers in the spring! Our mature sales' staff begins working diligently to give our customers an idea of the delivery schedule that matches the time they want to have their birds delivered. As the shipping date nears, the delivery is confirmed. If there is more than one customer in the same area, and there is room on our truck, we may make more than one delivery to an area of the country. Once we have scheduled an entire truck for delivery, we begin processing the crate numbers needed for the shipment. We provide the crate numbers to the “catch crews.” The crate numbers describe what types of crates are needed for each kind of bird and how many birds will be in each crate. Read More »

Lodewyk Davis (Wikus) has worked at MacFarlane Pheasants for five years. He has been the proud manager of the Milton Farm in Milton, WI, for three years, and we can thank him for sharing Milton Farm facts with us this week. We have two farms located in Milton, one we just call “The Milton Farm” and the other is a little further down the road and we call that “Doug’s farm” (it’s the surname of the owner we rent from). We have four barns, two pens on the Milton home farm, and another four at Doug’s farm. Read More »

Hatching pheasant eggs requires an incubation time of 23-25 days. The incubation time is affected by temperature, genetics, and management; these factors are considered the most important part of hatching in our hatchery department. There are two different processes to hatch poultry eggs – single-stage and multi-stage incubation. We use multi-stage incubation at MacFarlane, but both processes are effective. Read More »

Troy Cisewski, our Production Manager, oversees the three MacFarlane Pheasants’ farms in Missouri. They are all located within a 30-minute driving distance of each other. The primary purpose for having the Missouri farms is biosecurity. Multiple egg sources protect us if a disease occurs and other farms would need to be quarantined. Another safety measure we employ at the Missouri sites is to have designated employees at each location to eliminate cross-traffic contamination. The Missouri sites also free pen space in Janesville for our famous flight birds. Read More »

Our wholesale customers will have pheasants for the holidays because they have been ordering for the last few months, getting ready for the upcoming season. Some customers ordered their pheasant in June! There have been shortages in the duck and turkey industries, and customers worried about pheasant availability so they have been making their purchases early. Read More »
