Pheasant raised without antibiotics or hormones on a small farm in New Jersey, where the birds live in spacious netted fields. This allows them free-flight, natural behaviors and the ability to forage in tall grasses to supplement their grain diet. Our pheasant is the ring-necked pheasant breed, less common than the more widely farmed Milan-white breed. Pheasant is the most popular- and approachable - type of game bird, with lean and flavorful meat.

Cooking Methods: Roast, Braise, Stew

Cooking Tips: Pheasant is mild in flavor and low in fat, when using a dry-heat cooking method, rub the bird with butter or oil and baste occasionally for added moisture. A pheasant can also be brined or barded with thin strips of bacon. A low oven temperature will ensure pheasant doesn’t dry out. A quick, shallow braise will also yield great results. Allow pheasant to rest for 10 minutes before slicing or serving.

Our small New Jersey farm raises old breed ring-necked pheasants, not bland Milan-white breed birds, like most commercial pheasant farms.

A unique environment provides the birds with free-flight conditions; large netted fields protect the pheasants from predators while allowing their natural behaviors, including foraging in tall grasses. To supplement the forage, they are fed a clean grain diet, free of any hormones, antibiotics and animal by-products.

The pheasants are raised to an average age of 22 weeks and are processed by hand, on the farm for quality and freshness.
