LOOKING FOR CHICKEN? We offer only USDA or MDARD inspected chicken for sale on our website, but we *also* sell fresh chicken processed on farm! Click here to learn more.
The Bresse hails from France, where it is famed for its juicy, delicious meat. This breed has more intramuscular fat than other chicken breeds, making for a luxuriously delicious and juicy bird. Raised free range on pastured until 2 weeks before butcher, when we confine them to a smaller area of pasture and offer free access to grain soaked in milk, allowing leg muscles to soften and helping them develop a generous amount of fat in their muscles. You've never had a chicken like this one! Their breast is small but incredibly juicy, their dark meat is incredibly rich.
Most of our Bresse are offered at the "broiler" stage ($7/lb), when they are 4-5 months old and 2.5-4 lbs in weight and can be prepared via roasting, braising, or stewing.
