Our heritage-breed Green Circle Chicken was a chef exclusive, but we decided to let you in on the secret. These old-breed chickens are raised longer than the others in the Green Circle program, for a more intense flavor.

With head and feet left on, and giblets inside, this a chicken that keeps on giving. Save the bones, and use the heads and feet, to make a rich, gelatin-filled stock.

Featured on the front page of The New York Times and CNN, this unique chicken was inspired by the common sense, waste-nothing philosophy of days past, when chickens lived on vegetable scraps and roamed freely around farmyards and pastureland.

In that tradition, we raise our chickens on a diet of surplus vegetables and trimmings collected from commercial kitchens and farmers markets. By saving these vegetables from their fate in a landfill and turning them into nutritious chicken feed, we raise healthier birds and contribute to a better world.

Not only are they fed well, these chickens are certified humane, making them rare birds indeed. They are air-chilled during processing, which means you get nothing but pure chicken flavor, not retained water.

Our holistic approach produces truly wholesome results. And that’s why we call it a Green Circle chicken. No waste = great taste.
