We call our chicken Real Chicken—certified organic, pasture-raised birds that are grown the way nature intended. Our chickens live their lives on clean, fresh grass, eating only organically-raised grains and pasture grasses. We treat them quietly and humanely. The result? Our customers agree: it’s the best chicken you ever ate!
These healthy, happy birds yield a delicious, lean, juicy and dense meat that is naturally high in Omega-3. Unlike industrial chicken, they contain no hard (saturated) fats, and their dark meat is a special treat. To promote the birds’ health and to provide our customers a safe and healthy product, we feed them no antibiotics, growth stimulants or hormones.
At Honeyhill farm, we personally manage every step from peep to plate and have spared no effort or cost to provide you with the finest quality chicken obtainable for you and your loved ones.
We invite you to visit our farm to inspect our methods and our quality product. Contact us to set up an appointment—the growing season is very demanding and we are frequently out of sight.
What is Pastured Chicken?
Pastured chicken is a farming method that raises chickens directly on pastured grasses—as opposed to conventionally-raised or “free-range” chickens in large and crowded factories. Our chickens run about contentedly in the sun and scratch in the grass, just as nature designed them.
This method was developed in response to food quality, safety and animal health considerations. Fresh pasture grass allows the birds to be raised in a cleaner, healthier and less stressful environment. Their grass-based diet enhances the chickens’ flavor and nutrition, while lowering their fat and calorie content. Our chickens are free of saturated fats and lose little weight in cooking. All because they are allowed to range on pasture.
As a result, a finer and better tasting product cannot be found anywhere. We raise chicken that is fit to eat.
- Certified organic feed only
- Totally antibiotic and drug free
- No hormones, dyes or stimulants
- No confinement
- No animal by-products
- Ethical and humane treatment
Because whole chicken exhibits superior keeping quality (rather than chicken that’s been cut up into pieces), we offer only whole chicken packaged in stapled, heavy-duty shrink wrap freezer bags. Packaged like this and kept below freezing, our grass-fed chickens will keep perfectly for more than a year. Our superior packaging and flash freezing process offers a frozen chicken indistinguishable from fresh!
