The whole chicken is a classic option for year-round enjoyment and you are truly supporting the farmer. The perfect choice for a family meal that's easy to roast or throw on the grill for a juicy beer can chicken.

Pitman Family Farm creates the "Heirloom" chicken by crossing a slower-growing chicken genetics with the traditional Cornish cross, resulting in a slower-growing and hardier bird that can be raised humanely in a pasture-centered production model. The chicken is fed non-GMO verified feed and is then air-chilled for quality.

Brine or season as desired and cook like you would another chicken.

WHY AIR-CHILLED?

Air Chill helps inhibit the spread of bacteria by keeping all of the chickens independent, and saves 30,000 gallons of chlorinated water every day! The air chilled method produces a better tasting chicken. With no water added, the air chilled method keeps the "real" chicken flavor and juices. No water is absorbed, so you get the natural flavor of chicken.
