Willow City Farm Pasture-Raised Chickens play an important part of our rotational grazing pattern. Our chickens freely roam our pasture completely unconfined, and are never treated with antibiotics or steroids.
Our poultry is processed in a local, USDA licensed, certified humane (& certified Halal!) facility in Petersburg, IL.
Split chicken breasts -- which are sold with the bone in and the skin on -- are perfect for those who like juicy, flavorful chicken. The bone helps even heat distribution, while the skin protects the interior so the meat is juicy after cooking -- and often there's crispy skin to boot.
Because of their diet and exercise, our birds are lean animals. When cooking them, keep in mind they have less fat than commodity chickens. We have found cooking with a wet, slow heat yields a more tender chicken dish. Our chicken breasts are great on the grill, in the oven, or on the stove top.
Each package contains 2 breasts and weighs an average of 4.5#. (In person orders are $7/lb.)
