You've heard about delicious Sunday chicken dinners back in the day (or remember their delicious flavor), you've heard of the world class flavor of French cooking, and flavorful chicken broth. You've tried the chicken available at the grocery store, perhaps tried the organic brands, but the truth is it still just tastes bland. Perhaps you're feeling like you're adrift in labels and recipes for the best tasting chicken. You feel like you should just give up on finding that gourmet chicken flavor all together!
Imagine picking up a gourmet whole chicken, ready to cook, right from your farmer, and taking it home like you're a French chef in your own chateau?
... grab that bottle of wine, my friend. We're about to make dinner really delicious.
Click on each to discover what makes Honeymoon Farm chicken more than "just" chicken.
Slather your whole chicken with some butter or olive oil, and roast it. Try stuffing the cavity with some veggies or herbs for even more flavor. Carve off the breast, legs, and wings for a delicious meal.
Once you've eaten the larger pieces of meat, it only takes a few minutes to pull off the remaining, smaller pieces. These are great for chicken salad, soup, tacos, or wraps and sandwiches! Save the rest for broth.
Using a crock pot or a stock pot on the stove, add the leftover chicken carcass to simmer with some veggies and some herbs. You'll have the most delicious stock in no time, with very little effort!
Liz has been raising chickens since 2016. Growing up with a father who has a passion for birds, it was only natural that she found an affection for these feathered animals. Starting with a small egg laying flock in her landlord's yard, Liz and Gary now have egg layers to supply their family, and are raising chicken on pasture for meat.
When we decided to start growing chicken, we wanted to do something more than just provide you with a staple food - we wanted to be able to give you the big flavor from old world and French cooking to bring home to your kitchen.
In 2021, we are adding Turkeys to our pasture for the most amazing, local holiday staple.
We plan to continue to grow these delicious birds - exploring quail, duck, turkey, and pheasant on pasture in the future as we establish and build Little Branch Butcher, a USDA inspected poultry processing facility designed to support our farm and other farms in the region wishing to feed our region with healthy, locally produced poultry.
