Our chicken is both free-range & air-chilled. These features are often considered to be better options than conventionally-raised chicken from a nutritional standpoint. Here are some reasons why:

  1. More Nutritious: Free-range chicken can be richer in certain nutrients compared to conventionally-raised chicken. This is because free-range chickens have access to a wider variety of foods, such as insects and plants, which can increase their nutrient intake. In addition, air-chilled chicken can retain more nutrients than water-chilled chicken because it doesn't absorb water during the chilling process.

  2. Lower in Saturated Fat: Free-range chickens tend to be leaner than conventionally-raised chickens because they have more opportunities to exercise and move around. This results in lower levels of saturated fat in their meat, which is better for heart health.

  3. Fewer Antibiotics: Conventionally-raised chickens are often given antibiotics to promote growth and prevent disease, which can contribute to the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Free-range chickens are less likely to require antibiotics because they have more space to move around, which can help to reduce the spread of disease.

  4. More Ethical: Free-range chickens are raised in more humane conditions than conventionally-raised chickens. They have access to outdoor space, fresh air, and natural light, which can help to reduce stress levels and improve overall welfare.

Overall, choosing air-chilled and free-range chicken can offer several benefits from a nutritional, environmental, and ethical standpoint. However, it's important to note that these options may be more expensive than grocery store versions.
