Cooking Tips: Chicken leg quarters are perfectly portioned for one and extrememly versatile. They take all manner of seasoning, brining, and sauces. If slow-cooking using a moist-heat method, place the chicken leg quarters under a broiler to crisp the skin just before serving. Chicken is cooked when an instant read thermometer inserted into the thickest part meat registers 165 degrees F and juices run clear.
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.
