Elmwood Stock Farm’s certified organic, pasture-raised chicken is the result of a commitment to doing things the right way—not the fast way, nor the cheap way. Our success is measured by the taste and nutritional benefits of the chicken we offer to you, not the efficiency of the process that’s paramount in industrial poultry production. We think you’ll agree that we’ve hit our mark when you experience the best-tasting chicken you’ll find anywhere.

More About Elmwood Stock Farm’s Organic, Pasture-Raised Chicken Production
There are two important attributes that distinguish Elmwood Stock Farm’s chickens from others:
1. Elmwood chickens are raised outdoors on pasture, which provides a diet enriched by forages, fresh air, adequate exercise and sunlight. “Pastured poultry” is raised the old-fashioned way, on fresh green grass or clover pastures supplemented with wholesome, organic grains, rather than in a crowded, enclosed building. Ours are housed in “chicken tractors,” which are closed up to protect against predators at night and opened during the day so the chickens can roam the pasture within an electric-net fence. The chicken tractors and fencing are moved every day so the chickens can continue to access fresh pasture and fertilize our fields.
Pasture-based animal production has recognizable human-health benefits, too, resulting in a chicken with low saturated fat and high omega-3 fatty acids. Pastured-chicken meat has significantly higher levels of vitamin A than the standard, industrially produced chickens. More information on health benefits and the science behind it is available at www.eatwild.com.
2. Elmwood Stock Farm’s chicken is certified USDA organic. We think it’s true that you are what you eat and—in this case—you are what what-you-eat eats. Don’ t confuse “farm-rasied,” “natural” and “ASH-free” chicken with USDA Organic. What’s the difference? Not only is Elmwood Stock Farm’s chicken raised “naturally”—free from any synthetic inputs, additives or stimulants—but we also follow all of the US Department of Agriculture’s National Organic Program standards for organic poultry. All of the chicken feed is certified organic, meaning it is free from antibiotics, genetically modified organisms, chemical pesticides and herbicides, and animal by-products. Our pastures, too, are certified organic, so there are no GMO seeds or synthetic chemicals applied, and we follow—and exceed—organic animal-welfare guidelines. Our organic certification means a third party has verified that we’re following all the standards.
