Similar to chicken breast in its versatility, our locally raised chicken thighs stand out in the kitchen when it comes to flavor. Being a dark meat, thighs provide ample flavor to a dish. The thighs have a higher fat content than breast, making it a very juicy cut of meat. Because of this, it is also very forgiving when cooked.
Whereas breasts can dry out quickly when cooking, thighs are more lenient during the cook time.
Our pasture raised thighs, when cooked on its own in a little bit of oil, produces a succulent and flavorful piece of meat with a beautifully crispy skin that is delicious to the last bite. Add our thighs to a rich sauce for a great weeknight meal that is packed with both flavor and nutrition.

Kara's favorite ways to prepare thighs is pan searing in olive oil and some spices like rosemary, sage, garlic and onions, and then plating with a fig jam on top. The sweet addition to the savory, crispy flavors and texture bring the whole dish together; it's a staple of hers when she can find a good fig jam!
When purchasing a 5lb, 10lb, or 20lb package you will receive individual retail packages weighing approximately 1.25 pounds in each pack.
Our vacuum sealed packages of pasture raised chicken thighs have an average of 2-4 thighs per package and weigh around 1.25 pounds. Because our broiler chickens are straight run, this means that both male and female birds live together. This means they grow at different rates, so the size of the chicken thighs can vary at time of processing. These birds have the best life possible when on our farm.
Rotational grazing when the weather permits allows them to have the best health for the animals while also allowing proper stewardship of the pastures. They are also provided free choice locally milled grains to ensure they have the best nutrients possible. Our animals are never fed animal by products and are never given growth hormones or steroids.
