The Cornish Cross is the most remarkable meat producing bird we have ever seen. Special matings produce chicks with broad breasts, big thighs, white plumage, and yellow skin. The rapid growth of these chicks is fantastic and the feed efficiency is remarkable. Contrary to popular belief, these are not genetically modified animals. This breed was formulated over a great many years through selective breeding. We have tried all sorts of different heritage breeds for our meat production and have found that the Cornish Cross is the untouchable leader for meat production.
Many people wonder what the experience will be like when buying a chicken direct from a farmer. To be honest, it isn't much different than when buying a chicken from the store. Our birds look just like a store bought bird. They even come in freezer ready shrink wrap bags. The difference is inside. They are pasture raised and only get to eat good natural stuff. We don't feed them other chicken parts. They don't get stuck living next to so many chickens they can't move. They get to forage on fresh grass every day. They have very happy chicken lives.
