TC Farm Chicken Is Different - Find out Why

Why We Started Our Farm

Finding Organic Chicken With Flavor

How We Started:
Before Betsy and I had our own farm, we tried to find someone raising organic chicken that would be as different as the pasture raised eggs we were enjoying.

I volunteered at one of these farms. Sure it was nice that the birds were outside, but those genetically manipulated breeds are cheap to raise because they don't 'waste' feed growing feathers or strong bones or organs. The result was a strange combination of a beautiful natural pasture full of birds that didn't behave or look so natural at all. It was disillusioning at best.

Amazing Pasture Raised Chicken

After starting our own farm, we researched how to raise the best chicken. We learned that chickens' don't really start to develop flavor until they are almost twice as old as those fast growth birds. Meat from slower growth genetics actually has micro-marbling that adds to the health and flavor.

We started off with an experiment between three different slow growth breeds. Each night we'd taste test different cuts of all three and were astounded at how different they each tasted. In the past, chicken had tasted like whatever sauce we happened to use. These each had their own robust, yet delicate flavors that were fantastic with just a sprinkling of sea salt.

There was no turning back. This was food like we've never had before.

A classic favorite but it tastes SO much better with our TC Farm chicken. Something to warm you up on these cold January evenings!

This is a delicious dish. Remember: If your spices are old and don’t have a robust smell to them, it is worth getting new ones before trying this dish. Don’t buy spices at big box grocery stores. How long do you think the turmeric sits on the shelf there before someone buys it? Shop for these spices at a local Co-op with a good bulk spice selection.

Betsy whipped this soup up tonight while we were making a different dinner. It is great to be able to make meals ahead of time that are quick and easy to pull out of the fridge or freezer!

Here is the recipe for our famous Lemon-Butter chicken. This is a great meal to make a few batches up ahead of time and pull out for a quick and easy home cooked meal. This is the same chicken you'll find in our almost* ready to eat Sous Chef packages.

The perfect dish for entertaining guests. Or to use up any type of chicken you have in your freezer. Despite the long instructions (which includes random tidbits), this dish is reasonably quick and serves a lot of people for very little cost. (We fed 25 people with a double batch!) Plus it tastes super good and is easy to make!

Great over pasta, rice, couscous or mashed potatoes. It is excellent served with spinach sautéed in olive oil and tossed with a little lemon juice. Get the recipe AND watch how it's made!

Looking for a fresh, easy, and tasty way to use your boneless chicken breasts? We loved this. We separated the tenders from the breasts and made them all the same way so we ended up with normal-sized and kid-sized rolls in the end.
