    A little about the meat birds and why we do it...

     

    Pasturing chickens is a sustainable way of raising meat on pasture, as opposed to indoor confinement. Humane treatment and the health benefits of pastured meat goes far beyond your typical grocery store chicken. Our chickens get lots of sunshine, fresh air, native forage, bugs & insects, soil, roots & an organic supplemental (Non-Soy & Non-GMO) feed to provide the necessary vitamins and minerals that they need.

     

    Graze the benefits. . .

     

    • Higher concentrations of vitamins D and E (great antioxidants)
    • Other vitamins, like vitamin A and beta-carotene, iron, and micronutrients makes for a higher gelatin-rich broth, therefore, increased value of ordering the whole bird (heathy and rich organs, heads, feet & fat available on the side)
    • Flavorful, juicy meat (super tender) ok... my mouth is watering!
    • More good fats (OMEGA-3’s)

     

    100% pasture raised, grass fed chickens are non GMO, soy free, gluten free, msg free, sustainably, humanely and responsibly raised on our family pastures. Our poultry flocks are never given any hormones or antibiotics, and they live on pesticide, insecticide and chemical free grassy pastures where they hunt, peck, scratch and eat grasses, weeds, flowers, bugs grubs and anything else out there that peaks their interest. They do that freely within protected chicken tractors to keep them stress-free from predators.

     

    Our poultry never leave the farm; therefore they do not experience the stress of any transport for processing. They have the opportunity to live and thrive in one place their whole life, resulting in a greater quality of life, which translates to a healthier bird, resulting in a meat quality that is soft, tender, flavorful & a nutrient dense super food.

     

    Pastured meat flavors are naturally enhanced when you cook them LOW and SLOW. Please keep in mind that because of their diet (non gmo/non soy) these birds are a bit leaner. When cooking them, keep that in mind and they are likely to need less cooking time. When preparing them - Indirect heat is optimal, you can delight in the natural flavor of the meat in many different ways, including: braising, grilling, pan searing, smoking or baking (I love using my pressure cooker as well). Our poultry is finger licking good…enjoy, we do!
