Keep refrigerated at below 40 degrees for up to a week. Freeze if your plans change and you will not be cooking it within the week. Maple Wind poultry comes frozen but it begins the thawing process en route to you. Continue to thaw by keeping your poultry in the refrigerator and use within a week. Maple Wind poultry can be refrozen if desired. To thaw meat that has been frozen, place in a sealed bag in a bowl of cool water. Allow at least a day to thaw your poultry prior to cooking. Depending on the size and cut thawing times may vary.
Maple Wind raises their broiler chickens on fresh pasture as well as Non GMO grain, fresh water, natural trace minerals and probiotics. They live in 'chicken tractors,' which are mobile homes for chickens that can be moved to fresh grass regularly. The chickens do not receive any antibiotics, synthetic vitamins, or appetite enhancing hormones.
Beth and Bruce operate a USDA Poultry processing facility in Richmond, Vermont where they have the technology to air chill the chickens after processing for a superior end result with less water weight. The processing facility is in close proximity to where the chickens were raised, reducing the stress level of travel on harvest day.
This chicken is not certified organic, however, they are fed grain that is free of GMO's and do not get any antibiotics or hormones.

These made great chicken broth, but it was quite a large package, even for my largest oval CrockPot. I've never had such thick gelling of a batch of broth before. If I order these again, I may ask if a friend wants to split the package with me; I don't have the extra freezer space to store carcasses at this time of year.
