Pastured poultry live outdoors, eating lush grasses and clover, exercising in the warm sun and resting at night. The birds are carefully raised on local farms and gently nourished by fresh air and sunshine. The farming methods are completely sustainable, integrating a beautiful cycle of animals and crops. The poultry is fresh and lean, bursting with delicious flavor and juices, vitamins and minerals.
