Note that organic chicken meat tends to have red or brown coloring around the bones even after cooking. This is not blood, rather it is proteins called myoglobin and hemoglobin which are predominantly found in healthy free-range chicken that exercise and move a lot. There are no safety or quality concerns. Brining the chicken 24h prior to cooking in a salt solution helps reduce the visual impact.

You get 500g (about 1 or 2) meaty chicken frames, also known as chicken carcass or rotisserie chicken leftover for the ultimate top quality organic chicken bone broth/chicken stock. 500g of the chicken frame is enough to feed the whole family and your neighbors. You may need to freeze the leftover broth for later use. See the video and images below for cooking instructions.

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.

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%).

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!

Safe and healthy

I use this to make chicken soup . It’s safe and healthy for my whole family. Adding vegetables like onion , carrot, potatoes and radish will make a perfect bone broth.


Translated from Japanese: Purchased to make bone broth.
I was surprised the bones were bigger than I expected!
I think the cost-performance is very good.

My family and dog love it!

Translated from Japanese: These make the best chicken bone soup that suits any dish. I give the bones to my dog after using them. He devours them, and they’re also convenient because they’re also good for his dental care.


Translated from Japanese: I buy it regularly and simmer it with organic vegetables to make bone broth soup!
It’s an indispensable soup with good soup stock!

Excellent quality!

Translated from Japanese: I purchased this product mainly to try making chicken bone soup for ramen. Immediately after it arrived, I thawed it in running water and used it, and thanks to you, I received a very beautiful item, so it was easy to do the pretreatment such as cleaning. The taste was not peculiar and my family loved it, so I think I made a very good purchase.
