NOTE The “Deposit” option just reserves a chicken — there will still be an additional payment when picking up of $12-$22 depending on the weight of the chicken!
A more economical alternative to our heritage-breed chicken. Freedom Rangers resemble a standard Cornish Cross meat chicken in having a larger breast and wide stance, but unlike their grocery store counterparts, they are slower growing and are able to walk and forage outside. They reach full size in just three months, so they are young and tender enough for frying. Not as much bold chicken flavor as our Bresse: if a Bresse chicken is a robust IPA, the freedom ranger is an easy drinking lager from your favorite local brewery -- everyone loves it and flavorwise it beats the pants off a Bud Light (the grocery store chicken in our analogy). Great for any kind of recipe -- this is the chicken I use if I want to make a curry or mole.
Most of our Freedom Rangers are processed at 10-12 weeks old, in the fryer/broiler stage ($5/lb, 3-5 lbs) and suitable for all cooking methods; we sometimes offer bigger, older birds at the roaster stage ($4.5/lb, 3.5-6 lbs), when they are better suited for roasting, braising, or other lower heat cooking methods.
