New Zealand Certified Organic Free-Range Chicken Mince (500g)

Horizon Farms


Buy More, Save More

You get 500g (1.1lbs) of ground chicken/mince. We use the whole chicken breast - nothing else. This may be the cleanest, the purest, healthiest ground chicken in Japan. The chicken is ethically raised and naturally slow grown and therefore the meat is much healthier, tastier, and juicier than commodity chicken. 

Ground chicken equals chicken burgers. Our top favorite and a fantastic way to save the day with a quick and healthy meal. The pack defrosts within 30 min in cold water. We like to mix the ground chicken with ground pepper, sea salt, hot sauce, lemon juice, and paprika powder and form into 3 burger patties and cook them with olive oil in the fry-pan over medium heat. The burgers are juicy and taste amazing just the way they are! If you want to have the full deal, use tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, and freshly made avocado sauce. Don't forget the burger buns. If you like it hot and spicy try chicken burgers with authentic harissa sauce. 

Free-range, open pasture-raised certified organic chicken from New Zealand. Naturally and sustainably slow-grown with love and care on certified organic apple orchards in Hawke's Bay. The happy chicken roam and forage freely as nature intended. No antibiotics, no growth hormones, no GMO feed, no chlorine washing. The feed and the land are free of any synthetic chemicals. Certified organic is not only good for you but most importantly good for the environment. Bostock Brothers organic chicken is the only certified organic chicken farm in all of New Zealand.

Due to bilateral agreements, this chicken is only certified organic in New Zealand. Japanese JAS organic is being applied for and in process.

Translated from Japanese: Minced chicken breast is easily damaged and smells bad, but after thawing this item, I could cook it right away and it didn’t smell at all.
Since one bag weighs 500g, it may not be possible to use it all at once.
I’d be grateful if there was a smaller amount available, too.


Translated from Japanese: Easy to use for any dish, safe, secure and delicious! I purchase 90% of my meat here.


Translated from Japanese: Minced chicken breast tends to be smelly, but I’m always cooking with this one because I can do so with confidence.


Translated from Japanese: I bought it last time, and among the minced meat (beef, pork, chicken), this minced meat is rich, yet has no odor and is delicious. Beef and pork are also delicious, but I like this minced meat the most.


Translated from Japanese: I cut the ingredients into small pieces and put the minced meat in curry. This minced meat is still delicious even after a few days.
