Below is a link to our (Farmer's Blog) guest blog from one of our long time customers, D.S. of Vancouver, BC. In his blog, D.S. discussed the difference between pastured heritage birds and regular store bought chickens. He also shared a roasted heritage chicken recipe inspired by Lyn Hall.
Welcome to our Recipe Page!
Thank you for your interest in pasture raised birds. It's so hard to find recipes for heritage pasture raised birds without having to look for pre-1950's cook books, so we've decided to create this recipe page to compile recipes tailored just for pastured chickens. Recipes come from family, friends and our customers. This is a good guide for new cooking ideas for homesteaders/farmers raising chickens or for foodies/cooks who are curious to try pasture raised poultry.
Recipes for Pasture Raised Heritage Chicken
"In cooking pastured birds, there's something you should know: throw all that you think you know about cooking chicken out the window. We're talking about cooking chickens that lived like chickens; rather than a shorter life in a barn, you're about to prepare a bird that has been running around on a field and has the legs of a sprinter. Dark meat is where a lot of the flavour is. That's where a good chicken recipe transforms into a great one!"
