Get Great Pastured Chicken from Wilderness Ranch

by Mark Erb April 04, 2017

We all have a nearly insatiable appetite for chicken. This widely consumed meat is one of everyone’s favourites – commonly available and adaptable to a diverse range of recipes. Many chicken farms today have developed methods that cut corners, creating weightier and larger chicken that makes the prices more affordable and chicken seem more plentiful. The process of plumping can make the chicken you buy at the grocery store seem too good to be true.

With videos such as this monstrous chicken going viral, it’s easy to believe that chicken might just be bigger than you imagine. While at Wilderness Ranch, we sell large whole birds that are completely natural, they aren’t quite as big as the chicken-zilla in that video. Our pasture-raised chickens can grow quite large, but typically our birds end up around 5 to 6 pounds once mature.

Many commercial processors will plump their chickens, however, meaning they inject meat with salt water or seaweed extracts. This makes the birds weigh more, which means that you as the consumer are shelling out more money for less actual meat. This process also increases the sodium content of what would have otherwise been a healthy and delicious meal.

Chickens do come larger these days, but they do not have to be the subject of cheat methods. They can get that way through organic means. Wilderness Ranch avoids the unnatural, corner-cutting practices that many commercial processors implement and instead delivers tasty, fresh whole chickens that are naturally plump and healthy. See the difference in taste, texture and quality of organically raised birds by placing an order for high-quality whole chickens from Wilderness Ranch.
