Whole Chickens, Half Chickens and Chicken Parts
The chickens that we purchase as chicks, are bred over the generations to have the best feed-to-weight conversion. The Cornish Rock X is a variety known to produce rapid growth and wonderful broad breasts, and big thighs: the perfect roasting chicken.
These hardy chicks are eager to be let out to pasture during the day, and are offered interior housing at night to be safe from the stress of predators. They are always fed locally, naturally milled feed, and are offered fresh well water daily. We raise the birds in a clean, humane environment, free of antibiotics or hormones.
The chickens reach their desired weights by 8-9 weeks of age. They are then transported and processed at an organic certified, USDA Inspected facility and picked up for delivery by Granova Poultry Partners.
We are now offering non GMO chickens along with our all natural birds. These chickens are raised in the same humane manner, but fed only certified GMO free grains.
We also raise Cornish Rock Game Hens, offering them during the holidays throughout the year. Cornish game hens are neither from Cornwall nor wild game, and they can be hens or roosters.
They were reportedly first bred in the 1950s by a Connecticut couple, Jacques and Alphonsine Makowsky, who crossed breeds of domestic chickens with a Cornish gamecock and sold the hybrid when it was very young. As a result, Cornish game hens typically weigh less than 2 pounds, so they cook faster than larger chickens and look nice on a plate — traits that make them popular with consumers. They also feature small breasts and a high ratio of fatty skin to meat. The fatty underside bastes the meat as it cooks, which might explain why we found both their white and dark portions more tender, juicy, and flavorful than those on regular chickens.

We offer the following varieties, all using our own unique recipes and only the best ingredients to help make your meals the best they can be.

Feta Cheese and Fresh Spinach – A Blend of Greek Favorites. Serve it straight off the grill, or as some of our customers suggest: use it in stuffed mushrooms and other recipes calling for sausage.
Parsley, Lemon and Garlic – A light Italian-style sausage. With hints of white wine and lemon juice that complement the parsley, garlic and spices.
