WHOLE GUINEA FOWL, One 4.5-5lb bird from Good Shepherd Ranch
Whole Guinea Fowl One 4.5-5lb bird
We are so excited to feature an ancient breed of poultry, renowned for exquisite dark meat, and raised by a Pennsylvania based breeder disciple of the great Frank Reese of Good Shepherd Ranch, part of our efforts to spread his genetics to farms across the country.
A guinea tastes similar to pheasant and consists of mostly dark meat that is rich and burgundy in color, but it does not taste gamey. Frank explains that the white meat on a guinea is richer than the dark meat of a chicken! These are juicy, tender, and meaty birds yet lean, low in cholesterol, and rich in essential fatty acids.
There is no wrong way to eat a guinea: roasted, fried, stewed, or sous vide. Our guineas are super tender and easy to cook. Prepare as you would chicken.
Guineas are the native wild bird of the African Savanna. To this day these birds still maintain their wild and territorial character — they love to fly up to a roost in a tree and they make a lot of noise — always on guard to announce intruders!
Good Shepherd Ranch is the premier breeder and farm for America’s oldest line of poultry.
