Our Poultry are cage-free and raised outdoors. They have not been fed any GMO feed or animal by-products.
*From 120 day old native Basilan, traditionally bred and raised outdoors. What does this all mean? Are you aware of what kind of chicken you buy? Here's something you should know: in the late 40's poultry geneticists engineered a fast growing chicken known as a Cornish Cross. Since then, this bird completely consumes the marketplace (it can even be certified organic.) But this breed grows at an unnatural, abnormally fast rate of 37 days! If humans grew at the same rate, we would weigh 260 pounds when we reach 2 years old! These birds cannot reproduce on small, local farms. Because of this, the birds' legs cannot handle the weight and end up crippled within weeks after hatching. Their hearts cannot pump blood fast enough and often they die of heart failure. This breed also cannot reproduce. The genetics of are “owned” by the large poultry producers.
What do we offer you? Poultry that grows at a normal, slow rate. Our birds were grown for 120 days. They run around on pasture and develop muscles. This means normal organ development, more muscle and texture, more nutrients and stronger immunities.Ask the oldies: the longer a chicken lives the better it will taste!
We also give you a heritage, standard breed. Not only do they taste good, they can naturally reproduce. This breed was developed for this climate. We have also develop this from our own breeding flock! Our flock is quite sustainable! When a farmer is able to breed, grow and market his own fowls, he is no longer dependent upon the bigger producers.
Lastly, these heritage breeds were bred to be outside on pasture! Many farmers in the pasture poultry movement, are taking industrialized, commercial poultry that were developed to grow in confinement and putting them out on pasture! That is not what they were created for! The best birds to raise outside are the old breeds that were meant to be on pasture; they run around, they eat bugs and grass.

I never ever liked native chicken - the color, the taste, the texture, and the broth. Everything about it was just a tad too intense for my senses that had been raised on the commercial chicken. BUT when i tried DTE's chicken stock - i realized how much i have deprived and denied myself of the better thing! Now that i am a vegan, the stock gives a chock full of flavor to my vegetable dishes!
