"Tastes like a real chicken should taste"
The chickens are free roaming, slow grown, and raised without antibiotics or hormones.
Our chickens are grown and raised in our sister farm in New York State. They are raised in a open arena, where they can run around free inside. We raise them inside a in-closed arena because of diseases that birds outside the buildings may carry can be passed to our chicken. We keep our chickens in doors to keep them healthy and disease free.
We feed them a healthy diet of only corn and soy beans. The corn is grown on our own sister farm, and we have a close relationship with our feed company, (Cochecton Mills).
Our chickens get to run around free for 6 months, before we ship them out to be slaughtered.
As one of our relative, Anita Lee, in NYC with BoBo Poultry Market has said:
“Buddhist Style” chickens means the birds are processed in accordance with Buddhist religious beliefs, requiring that the head and feet remain on eviscerated poultry. Not only are the birds thus suitable for prayer, but “we can use everything,” Anita explained. “We use the neck and the feet for stock. I’ve seen how “extraneous” parts are wasted, even in cooking schools here!” Anita she said. “You have to be able to look at the chickens’ eyes, to see that they are fresh and healthy. How can you know a bird is fresh, if you are only looking at parts?!”
