A capon is the perfect special occasion bird and is the first choice for the holidays in France and Italy. Capon meat is very white and, unlike that of other chickens, marbled with fat. Larger than a hen and smaller than a turkey, a capon is full-breasted with tender, juicy, flavorful meat that is well suited to roasting. Because of its size, the capon is a good choice to feed a dinner party or even a small Thanksgiving gathering in place of turkey. Our capons are humanely raised in free-range conditions with full access to open fields, and allowed to grow at a natural rate, with no growth stimulants ever used.

Cooking Methods: Roast, Poach, Barbecue, Smoke

Cooking Tips: Capons require longer cooking times than typical chickens because of their larger size. A 7-pound capon will yield 6 to 8 single servings. If you make stuffing, allow 1/2 cup per serving. Be careful not to over stuff the bird. Cook any excess stuffing in a separate baking dish. When roasting, put the bird into the oven legs first to position the dark meat towards the back, the hottest part of the oven. Rest a capon for 20-30 minutes before carving.

To bring you Old World quality and tradition, we work with a group of small farms in South Dakota to provide us with our capons. Offering a complete farm-to-table audit trail, these farmers focus on best animal welfare practices. Humanely raised in free-range conditions with full access to open fields, our capons are allowed to grow at a natural rate, with no growth stimulants ever used.


A capon is a male chicken that is gelded (that is, castrated) at a young age, and allowed to grow until it reaches between 6 and 12 pounds. Our farmers use traditional surgical methods, rather than the chemical caponization more common in modern farming. The nutritionist-developed corn and grain diet is free of protein supplements, and added poultry or fish by-products; it includes constant access to fresh spring water.
