See Description below for prices and pick-up locations. Please note Heritage chicken is not available this year because the breeder died suddenly.
Raised under the Artisanal Chicken Program, our chickens live on pasture – grazing rotationally on grasses and legumes and foraging for insects and seeds. They also receive a diverse mix of locally grown grain and seeds, most of which is organically grown and all of which is non-GMO, clean and unmedicated.
Our Standard chicken is a breed called the White Rock, or Cornish Cross, which is the industry standard. They have white feathers and grow to around 8-9 weeks on pasture. The meat of a Standard pasture-raised chicken looks similar to high quality supermarket chicken: plump breasts and legs and a good amount of white meat. You can see the difference pasture living provides in the collagen-set of stock and health of the organs.
When they are ready, we transport them a short distance to the local Amish community, where they are processed with care at an Ontario Approved inspected abattoir called Chicken Little (you will notice a white tag with this name in the skin of the chicken). At every step, Three Ridges Ecological Farm and the abattoir follow strict animal welfare and food safety protocols to ensure the health of the birds and safety of our customers.
