Please note this is a B-grade product. There is nothing wrong with the quality or the safety of the meat but the vacuum seal was not strong enough and ice crystals have formed within the package. The packaging is visually not appealing, however, this has no effect on the quality of the product. This product is discounted and sporadically available. The regular product is available here

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 organic chickens the best life.

INSTRUCTIONS & COOKING TIPS
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!
