Pasture Raised Chicken Products

No, we only ship our chicken products "flash-frozen" for your safety and awesome quality.
Our chicken live outside. A "Free Range" grocery store chicken has most likely never seen the outdoors or a fresh blade of grass with the morning dew on it. Our chickens live the "pastured life" enjoying fresh green forage everyday. This makes for happy healthy chickens with a flavor that cannot be matched in the grocery store.
All of our chicken is labeled with a "best by" date of six months after they are packaged and flash frozen.
The USDA recommends keeping chicken at refrigeration temperatures for 1 - 2 days.
No. The best way to defrost our chicken is by placing it in a bowl of cold water. Then storing it in your refrigerator until the chicken is thawed and up to two days after it is thawed.
No, once the chicken has been thawed it should be refrigerated, and used within 1 to 2 days.

Pasture Raised Chickens

Our chickens are raised outside in portable shelters. This method of farming gives them shelter from the elements while keeping them on green grass 24 hours a day. Try comparing this to "grocery store organic" chicken. Their chickens are only required to have "access to the outdoors" Only pastured chickens are raised on grass. Don't be fooled by "free range". Only Pastured chickens are raised on green grassy fields.
Free range chickens are chickens not raised in cages. Not only are our chickens free range they are pasture raised!
Our feed is comprised of natural and non-genetically modified whole grains that are ground to order. This feed is grown right here in Connecticut by farmers that respect their farm land just like we do.
Not only do we not use any antibiotics on our chicken flock, we also do not use any medications at all. Including all of the medications that big chicken companies use and are not required to tell you about when they put "antibiotic free" on there package.
We use small floor-less shelters to house our chickens. These shelters allow us to provide our chickens with green forages and daily moves to new pieces of pasture. These shelters protect the chickens from the elements along with any wild predators that make their way into our fields.
