The perfect combination for the dark meat fans among us, this package contains both thigh and drumstick.
Since our chickens are raised free-range and get plenty of exercise, they work their muscles more than the average bird.This means more flavor is packed per square inch, especially when it comes to this cut.
Air-chilling means there is no excess water to dilute the flavor. Plus, it gives the meat great texture.
This is pretty much the perfect piece of chicken. Roasted together, the thigh and drumstick make an ample meal. Or separated, they can feed - and please – all at a family meal.

D'Artagnan is dedicated to finding farmers that share our vision of a more humane way of rearing livestock. We look at scale and sustainability; choosing only those farms that respect nature and focus on the best animal welfare practices.
Our organic chickens are raised in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country by small Amish and Mennonite family farms committed to sustainable agriculture.
The chickens feed only on whole, non-GMO organic corn and soy, and no protein supplements, no poultry or fish by-products, no pesticides or herbicides are ever used. The water they drink is pure spring water, free of chlorine and fluorine. No growth hormones, tranquilizers, arsenicals or antibiotics are ever administered.
Our chickens are also free-range. In order for poultry to be certified free-range, it must be raised in specific conditions: with access to the outdoors and natural light, ability to forage naturally and a minimum of 1.5 square feet of space per bird when indoors. In addition, they must be raised to 8 weeks of age, as opposed to 5 or 6 weeks, which is standard for commercially-raised chicken. The result is a healthier, leaner bird with a distinctively rich flavor.
