Why does Organic chicken cost so much more than conventionally raised poultry? These birds are fed a certified organic feed. That means no GMOs, no antibiotics, no growth hormones, no pesticides or herbicides. These birds are active and have outdoor access which makes them a healthier, happier animal.
At Farmer Focus, farmers aren’t our employees—they’re our partners. We want you to see the hard work they put into raising each flock. That’s why every Farmer Focus product includes a Farm ID, so that you can get to know the farmers behind your food.
Our farmers believe that happy, healthy birds are worth the extra work and so do we. That’s why each farm is certified humane by two 3rd party organizations and certified non-GMO. Every batch of food is tested to ensure that birds are fed a 100% vegetarian and non-GMO diet.
Our unique business model puts the decision-making back in the hands of the farmer and allows them to drive innovation. Our commitment to 100% organic and sustainable farming allows us to build a better future for generations to come.
A whole chicken can be made in so many different ways.
Beer Can Chicken—For an easy way to make it: Brush it with oil, season it, plop it on a beer can and either grill or bake it covered until done (160° F)
Spatchcocked-A great way to grill it evenly. Brush with oil and season. It will lay flat and cook evenly. (Spatchcocking involves removing the backbone and breaking the breast bone.)
If cutting up the bird into parts for frying, baking, breading, shredding, etc. The back that is left will make great chicken broth and enough meat to pick off to make a great soup!
When you are done cooking your whole chicken and eating the meat off the bones, cook the bones for broth! You can make several meals out of one chicken.
Weight: 4-5 lbs. Whole Bird plus giblets
