This is a whole chicken, but it's older in age (1+ year old) than the "whole fryers" which are 12-14 weeks old. Older chickens have tougher meat, so they are ideal to use for making broths or chicken stock.

These free-roaming pastured chickens are healthier, happier, and nutritionally superior to the commercial organic ones typically found in the grocery store. (Note: Buying "organic" chicken at the store does not mean you are getting a chicken who had a healthy life roaming and foraging outdoors in sunshine). 

E.A.T. Food for Life chickens get to forage naturally for their typical diet of insects, worms, seeds, and plants. All of their feed comes from our certified organic farm.Daily, they are freely roaming outdoors in the natural sunlight and fresh air rather than locked up inside a coop. 

Some of the benefits of consuming pastured chicken meat include:

  • Rich in Essential Fatty Acids (especially the skin, pastured poultry has more Omega-3's and vitamin D than commercial chicken).
  • Higher levels of vitamins E, C and beta-carotene.
  • Never given hormones, antibiotics or drugs.
  • No arsenic (given to all commercial chickens as an appetite stimulant).
