Certified Organic chickens, raised on our lush pastures, and lots of delicious giblets!
On the weeks when the chickens are processed, they are sold as oven ready, fresh whole birds. After a few days though, the birds must be frozen to preserve their quality, and are sold as frozen whole birds until the next batch is ready. If you would like to join the mailing list to be notified when chickens are fresh, drop us a line here. We also have chicken feet, livers, gizzards, hearts, and necks available.
Their meat is succulent and flavourful, and often with a yellow-tinted skin and fat due to the increased vitamin A content from their foraging. Their grass based diet has also been shown to result in meat with a lower saturated fat content and higher levels of essential fatty acids.
A note on cooking: Since these birds are outside and are moved to fresh grass every day in our unique chicken tractors, they use their muscles a lot! We would suggest cooking them at a lower temperature for a longer time than you would a conventional bird to ensure they are tender.
