The genetic stock of our broilers comes from the American and European old heritage breed developed to meet the highest standards of the French Label Rouge Free Range program. The “Freedom Rangers” are a slower growing breed naturally better suited to being raised outdoors on pasture in the sunlight and fresh air. They’re sturdy, active birds, always foraging for seeds, bugs and whatever a chicken likes to eat including apples and pears from the old trees in the orchard. We harvest the birds here on the farm using the methods of the Label Rouge program, including air chilling the birds instead of soaking them in water.
These whole roasting chickens are available fresh the weekend after harvest and frozen throughout the year in our Farm Store. Sign up for our email newsletter to be notified when we have fresh chickens available (June – September).
