How to Truss and Roast a Whole Heritage Chicken

How to Truss and Roast A Whole Heritage Chicken

Learn how to truss and roast a whole heritage chicken! Standardbred chickens are slow-growing and pasture raised to 16 weeks, more than double the industry standard. Each chicken is laced with ribbons of sun-yellow fat that self-baste the bird as it renders, resulting in silky meat and crackly bronzed skin. Whole Heritage Chickens are now available Fresh for preorder to ship for delivery the week of June 5th, 2023. This is a groundbreaking development for the heritage meat movement and the cause of biodiversity in food because our collaboration works towards preserving (and eating!) poultry that are on the brink of extinction.

International Heritage Breeds Week Starts Today!

It is International Breeds Week and that is an exciting time for us. When we started 20 years ago our mission was to preserve heritage breeds and rare breeds by eating them, to increase their population counts and thus promote biodiversity — a mantra we learned from Slow Food and its founder Carlo Petrini.

Our Tour of Vermont Cheese

Terroir is land communicating with food. Têtoir reflects people and culture. It is, in part, the accumulated skill sets of creative people, but also the power of a locus, for whatever reason, to attract and breed artisans and artists. Têtoir is a word we made up, from the word tête, which is French for head. Têtoir is similar to terroir — what terroir is to the earth, têtoir is to the mind. Waitsfield, Vermont, nestled in the beautiful Mad River Valley, is high in artisan cheese and dairy têtoir.

Cara Loves our Heritage Breed Meat and Loyalty Program

"We are always seeking hormone-free, well exercised, good-tasting meat. (We like some of our local suppliers, too - gotta support one's community). As former small business owners, we respect and try to support small operations whenever possible. That you ship is SO great. We are thankful we found you! Food gifts are my favorite (to give and receive). Who wouldn't love a coupla chops or two? And honestly, I love your 'loyalty gifts'" — Cara
