From a uniquely American breed and style of raising chicken, hence the name American Bird, this chicken breast has so much flavor and possibility, it won't be hard to make a healthy yet comforting dinner. Butterfly and stuff with spinach and ricotta; bread and bake into classic chicken parmigiana; slice into strips for fajitas or stir fries. Distributed by Snowdance Farms, these American Bird chickens are always air-chilled for quality and flavor, free-range, and grown locally on Pennsylvania family farms. Plus, the air-chilling, since there is no chlorinated water bath, means you get a better textured, flavored, and quicker cooking chicken that is better for you and for the environment.
Livingston Manor, NY
Snowdance Farm in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York specializes in free-range chickens, as well as other humanely raised, pasture-raised meats. They raise a specific type of chicken that is a bespoke cross of three different heritage breeds including a Sussex and Essex, and the chickens are fed a very specific diet that includes alfalfa and flower seeds. These heritage birds take almost twice as long to reach mature size, 12-14 weeks, as compared to a commercial cornish cross breed chicken. They're fed a vegetarian diet supplemented by pasture foraging and are never given antibiotics, hormones, or medications. They have more than the required square footage per bird to qualify as humanely raised, and they have all sorts of toys and distractions, as well as access to the outdoors. When it's time for the chicken to reach the plate, they are humanely butchered in a USDA inspected facility that air chills the birds (vs water chilled) for better flavor, less mess, and less water weight, meaning you get the most meat, and most flavorful meat, for your investment.
