Make a great weekend meal to enjoy with friends and family with our whole chicken. Our pasture-raised chickens make dinner parties great with their rich meat. And the options for cooking are endless, room roasting in the oven with lovely aromatics, to spatchcocking (removing the back bone and cracking the breast bone so that the chicken lays flat) the chicken and grilling or smoking it, you can let your creativity go wild on the flavor combinations.
Our favorite thing to do is take fruits such as lemons, oranges, or apples and cutting them in half to insert into the cavity. This gives the chicken extra moisture while it is cooking and lightly flavors the meat. And when you finish your feast, save the bones to make a delicious and nutritious roasted chicken stock to make your favorite recipes with.
When purchasing 5 whole chickens, the weights will range between 3-4 pounds each, and we guarantee a total weight of 17.5 pounds minimum (5 birds at an average 3.5 pounds each).
The average weight of our whole chickens is around 3.5 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 can vary at time of processing. Our 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.
