Nothing tastes better than chicken that enjoyed quality food, forage, and family during its life.

Our pastured raised chickens are fed the same high-quality feed as our laying flock, amended for their nutritional needs. That means non-GMO chicken feed and hand-mixed whole-grain supplemented with vitamins, herbs, and minerals.

We believe chickens should live happy healthy lives, no matter their purpose. They live out their lives on pasture, being loved on by our family, and given the same humane and individual care as the rest of our animals.

Our chickens are processed with the utmost care (and with safe food handling practices!) to ensure our chickens are treated with the same love and respect that they were raised with.

We raise two varieties of pastured whole chicken:

  • Cornish Cross - The same hybrid breed you find in the grocery store, with large white breast meat. Our Cornish Crosses are more flavorful than grocery store birds, though! We attribute it to the sunshine, space, and feed we give our chickens. ($3.75/lb - 3 to 5 lbs in size)

  • Delaware - A heritage breed of chicken that is more flavorful and slower growing than the Cornish Cross. If you find supermarket chicken to be lacking in flavor and texture, this is the chicken for you. These chickens take longer to grow out which means higher cost, but many believe the flavor difference is worth the time! ($5/lb - 2.5 lbs to 5 lbs in size)
