    Savor the buttery taste and texture of our delicious, award-winning chicken—the first chicken on the market ever to be certified by the USDA as free-range organic. You'll never be able to eat grocery store chicken again.

    Note: Frozen items may thaw in transit.

    If you are what you eat, you better eat well; since we all eat a lot of chicken, this organic bird is the perfect solution.

    Decades ago, D'Artagnan pioneered the organic and free-range certification for chicken. Concerned about the cheap quality of poultry on the market, we wanted to offer an alternative. This chicken is the result. It is free-range, USDA-certified organic, and humanely-raised without the use of antibiotics or arsenicals.

    Not only is it tastier, it's also 25% leaner than standard, commercially-raised chicken. And the air-chilling process results in a bird with no retained water, and more concentrated flavor than the average chicken. We are proud to have raised the bar and established the gold standard for poultry with this bird.

    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.

    Enjoy this fine organic chicken roasted with herbs, cut into pieces and fried, poached in broth, or however you like your chicken. When buying a whole chicken, remember to stash the bones away in the freezer after you’ve eaten the meat to make stock with later. Chicken stock is one of the secrets of great chefs—they use it in place of water in many recipes, as a base for sauces, and to impart umami to vegetable dishes. We are firm believers in using the whole animal—from beak to tail—and even getting the flavor and nutrition right out of the bones.
