✔ Free-range, open pasture-raised with love and care in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand.

✔ Chicken freely forage and exhibit natural behavior. Chalets provide shelter from the elements which they can use at free will.

✔ Certified organic pasture land, feed and chicken.

✔ Naturally slow-grown chicken. Meat is better formed, of much higher quality and superior taste.

✔ No use of antibiotics or growth-promoting hormones - ever

✔ No GMOs, no synthetic chemicals used on land, feed or in meat. Meat is never chlorine-washed.

✔ Air chilled - no water is used to cool the meat. Which means less shrinkage and water loss during cooking.

✔ The happiest, healthiest, and tastiest chicken available - taste the difference.

At A Glance

Chicken Breed Cornish Cross, raised and bred for meat.
Farm/Ranch Bostock Brothers Farm (I want to learn more about the Bostock Brothers)
Region Hawke's Bay, New Zealand
Breeding All year free-range, free-roaming. Once fully feathered they are free to leave the chalets and roam outside on green pasture grass. Bred for quality, not quantity which means the chickens are much slower growing and are as pure and natural as they can be.
Raised by Ben and George Bostock
Farming Experience Organic apple farming since childhood, pasture-raised chicken since 2014
Feeding Certified organic lush, green grass and juicy organic apples as well as home-grown feed including corn and barley (80%). Additional supplements may include 100% organic and GMO-free soybean meal (+/-14%) and fishmeal from New Zealand (+/- 5%). Chicken are free to forage on open pasture which means they also eat insects and everything they find within the orchards including salts and limestones.
Traceability 100% fully traceable from farm to fork
Growth Promoting Hormones Never
Antibiotics Never
Animal By-Products Feeding Never
GMO feed Never

Put the frozen or defrosted chicken frame as is into a large pot. 


 Add vegetables like celery, onion, carrots and parsley.


Cover with water. Add sea salt and freshly ground pepper.


Bring to a boil and immediately reduce heat to bring the stock to a simmer. Simmer partially covered for 1.5-2 hours, occasionally skimming off any foam that comes to the surface. 


The longer you let it simmer the more concentrated the stock will be. 


Remove the bones and vegetables and strain the stock through a fine mesh sieve. Store in glass jars and fill only to 80% to leave space for the liquid to expand in case you are freezing it.


Homemade chicken stock is good for 4 days in the fridge and 1 year in the freezer. 


We've managed to store more than 1 liter of concentrated organic chicken soup after simmering for 4 hours. That is a lot!

I boiled it in a pressure cooker, divided it into small pieces, refroze it, and used it as a secret ingredient for colorful cooking.
