1.5-2lb total, skin-on — from heritage chickens raised by the Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch Network


1.5-2lb total, skin-on
Delaware and New Hampshire

Much like the thigh, drumsticks are made of dark meat, best for slow roasting or braising. They make for a striking presentation piece that does not sacrifice on flavor. Each part is laced with ribbons of sun-yellow fat that self-baste the bird as it renders, resulting in silky meat and crackly bronzed skin.

Kansas-based heritage farmer Frank Reese of Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch, who has made it his life’s work to preserve endangered breeds of poultry, has worked for years to maintain stronger lines of chickens. Reese has partnered with his first-ever protégé, Jed Greenberg of Chosen Farms, to raise and process heritage chickens in New Jersey. His flock is the only heritage breed line available online! Good Shepherd Ranch and now, Chosen Farms, are the premier breeders and farms for America’s oldest line of poultry.
