Cornish or Barred Rock
Taste chicken unlike any you've had before! Our 100% heritage chicken is hatched and raised on the Kansas prairie. Allowed to roost, root and forage naturally—a combination of active lifestyle and diverse diet help our heritage chickens develop their renowned flavor that is both sweet and buttery with a distinct umami finish.
For 15 years, we've partnered with America's preeminent poultry expert, Frank Reese. Frank adheres to the strict standards for Standard-bred Chicken set forth by the American Poultry Association – many of the breeds can be traced back to the 19th century. Our heritage chicken is raised without antibiotics or hormones, using traditional farming practices that ensure the highest standards of animal welfare guaranteed to produce the best tasting meat.
With over 24 breeds of chicken being raised by Frank at Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch, we are always excited to showcase new Standard breeds, all of which are considered rare by the Livestock Conservancy and worth saving by Slow Food USA through their Ark of Taste project. Check back often for our newest selections and shop our Chicken Breed Tasting Kit to try 3 unique breeds side-by-side.
The Cornish was developed in England around the 1820s as a fighting bird. The breed grew very slowly, but developed extremely strong, solid muscles and larger breasts than other standard breeds, making it a meatier alternative. The Cornish was accepted into the American Poultry Association in 1898.
Plymouth Barred Rock
: This 150-year-old breed is the king of meat production. It is the ultimate broiler chicken and a member of the American Poultry's Standards of Perfection. This was the original chicken produced in the United States.
