Cooking Tips & Recipes

Our pasture-raised poultry isn’t just any old chicken. We put a lot of TLC into raising them. They get fresh air, exercise, and forage (bugs & grass), unlike commercially-raised confinement chicken (yes, even the one labeled ‘organic’) found in most grocery stores. We raise slower-growing breeds that are healthier, more active, and better foragers than your typical commercial chicken. In addition to rotating pasture, we offer our chickens a custom-formulated feed using corn/soy-free, non-gmo, northwest-based ingredients for optimum health and high nutritional content. In return, our chicken appreciates a little TLC from you in the kitchen in order to bring out the amazingly rich flavors and textures of these unique birds. Here are some of our favorite kitchen tips and recipes!
