Store-bought chicken is severely manipulated from its original state. They are raised in crowded barns, with a steady diet of antibiotics.
Conversely, chickens from Echo Valley Ranch are free range or are pasture raised to approximately 5-7 lbs processed.
We raise our chickens out on pasture; they free range during the day, and roost in a portable coop for the night, protected from predators. We do supplement our chickens’ diets with GMO free, organically grown grain. Chicken on pasture consume about 30% of their diet as greens, passing on those health benefits in their meat.
Pastured Chicken Prices:
- halved pastured chicken: $5.25/ lb. (halves are approx. 2.5 – 4 lbs.)
- whole pastured chicken: $5.00/ lb. (wholes are approx. 5-7 lbs.)
Note: We only raise these chickens during the grass season, so we notify our customers by email when they become available.
