Description

Please note, that due to a revision in Japanese law regarding food labeling in July 2020 it is no longer possible to label organic meat products of New Zealand origin as “organic” in Japan unless an equivalency agreement is signed between both countries. Both countries are currently working on an agreement which may take a while. Please be assured that we’re an officially licensed importer of organic food with the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries of Japan, and our top quality organic chicken from New Zealand is recognized as certified organic anywhere in the world except Japan simply due to a bureaucratic issue.

Compared to our 1.3kg chicken, this massive 2kg sized chicken was raised for an additional 4 weeks - apparently raising organic chicken for additional weeks without the use of growth hormones gets very costly - hence the higher price tag however at lower price point than the 1.3kg chicken (yen per 100g comparison). We have only imported a few of these - we recommend 2kg sized chicken for special occasions only. You get 1 fully sized large whole bone-in chicken without the giblets and neck - basically ready for roasting. The size is around 2kg (4.4lbs). That should fit any regular oven in Japan. The chicken is naturally slow grown and therefore the meat is much healthier, better formed, tastier, and juicier than commodity chicken. There are no bruises or broken bones that you often find on poor factory-farmed birds. Perfect for a family dinner or gathering. Used with plenty of healthy oven-roasted vegetables this bird can easily feed the whole family. 

New Zealand free-range, and pasture-raised chicken. Naturally slow grown and family farm-raised with love and care on an organic apple orchard farm in the sunny Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. No antibiotics, no growth hormones, only no GMO home-grown feed, no chemicals, and free of chlorine. The healthiest and tastiest chicken you can get!

Ben and George Bostock grew up on their family’s organic apple orchard in sunny Hawke’s Bay and share a family passion for healthy, safe growing practices where there is control from the farm to plate. This means no chemicals, no antibiotics, no hormones, and no genetic modification. The brothers are determined to give their free-range and pasture-raised chickens the best life. Their apple orchard provides the perfect environment to pasture-raised chicken. The birds enjoy a happy life roaming freely among the apple trees and are housed in uniquely designed french chalets, which are clean and spacious and enable the chickens to roam freely outside once they are fully feathered.
