They have been air chilled, cryovaced and frozen to preserve their excellent flavor and freshness.
Enjoy within 5 days or freeze for later use.
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. They do not receive any antibiotics or hormones. 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 pasture, supplementing thier diet with 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. These 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.
