What you don’t see when you pick upa“cheep” chickenfromyoursupermarket, is what kind of life the chicken you are buying had. Do you CARE? maybe you should?Even Free range chickens from those big suppliers are not always really FREE RANGE, becauseallgrowersneedtodo to comply with the current “free range standard” is give the chickens a little more space and a tiny door leading to the sunlight. They say nothing about growth hormones, antibiotics, animal by-products and the incredible stress (I call it torture) that the chickens are put through when they are grown in cages or densley populated chicken houses. Anyway, an animal that has REALLY grown up on pasture, as Free as a bird, should be, will only Taste better, we guarantee that! Try our free range chicken recipes.
Free-ranged chicken is an
exceptional source of
protein especially if it is
free of antibiotics.
Over half of the antibiotics fed to mass-produced chickens are identical to the ones administered to humans. It has been well publicized in the media, overuse of such antibiotics can lead to strains of bacteria resistant to antibiotics, opening doors wider for potential human diseases to flourish.We do not use routine antibiotics, but we always reserve the right to medicate sick chickens.Filip has designed a COLD smoker to give our bacon and chicken breasts that wonderful old fashioned “smokey” taste. Most of the smoked products that you buy nowadays are “smoked” using CHEMICALS, these are not only bad for you but they really don’t taste the same as the REAL smoked products!
