WHY WE LOVE THESE: A whole chicken for dinner is like coming home to a warm hug and a cooked chicken in the fridge that you can pick at and snack on at all hours of the day and night is somehow, even better. This pasture-raised chicken will feed a family of 4, and when you buy in bulk, the value gets better and better so if you’ve got a freezer in the garage, this is what you’ll want to fill it with.

[COOKING NOTES]: Knowing how to cook a whole chicken feels like some right of passage that should be celebrated. Our method is simple. Remove innards if they’re present, and tuck the wings behind the chicken and then tie the legs together. This video shows how to truss a chicken the proper way, but we say go ahead and just tie those legs together if wrapping the twine around the whole body seems like too much work. Coat your chicken with high-quality olive oil, salt, and pepper and make sure to really rub it in and under the skin. Then, put your chicken on a roasting pan and into the oven at 475° for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes turn off the oven and leave the chicken in the oven to continue cooking for another 30 minutes. The chicken should be in the oven for one hour total. When you remove it, you’ll have crispy skin and tender, juicy meat. Give the chicken 10 minutes to rest outside the oven before devouring.

RAISED RESPONSIBLY: Like all of our meat, this comes from farmers who raise their animals with respect. Rettland Farm is a small family farm in Gettysburg, PA that produces Cornish Cross chickens on seasonal pasture, without the use of any antibiotics or synthetic growth promotants, ever. They process all of their own poultry and produce their unique line of Farmstead Butcher artisanal sausages in their own on-farm USDA inspected butcher shop.
