“Your chicken was so tender and juicy. They are such a gift to this community.”
~ Chef Vimala Rajendran, Vimala’s Curryblossom Café
We have chosen to raise a breed of broiler chicken known as “Freedom Rangers” because we feel they are better-suited for pasture-based management than the industry standard white Cornish Cross birds, and also because they produce a higher quality meat.
Freedom Rangers were derived from an American and European heritage breed that was developed in the early 1960s to meet the high standards of the French Label Rouge Free Range program. For more information on Label Rouge, visit http://www.volaillelabelrouge.com/en/home/
Our broiler (or meat) chickens are moved to fresh pasture daily which means that they are healthier, happier, and tastier. Their diet of grass and bugs is supplemented by a GMO-free feed we source from a local feed mill. They grow at a moderate rate, reaching their peak weight of 5-6 lbs in 9 to 11 weeks. These active, robust chickens produce tender, succulent meat with more yellow omega 3 fat and less saturated fat than fast growing breeds.
