Are you concerned about the higher costs of Organic
Currently, we only offer whole and half chickens. We
plan on offering whole chickens cut into parts in the future, likely
We are also happy to work with fine dining
restaurants to offer select parts from our chickens
such as livers, gizzards and necks.
We currently raise heritage breeds for
meat and eggs and Rock Cornish Cross for meat.
Cornish Rock Cross: These have the plump meaty
breasts that most consumers have come to expect. This
breed is susceptible to many pitfalls in production
including heat, cold and disease but is the most
commonly utilized breed for meat.
Heritage Breeds: Includes many such as Rhode
Island Reds, Buff Orpingtons, New Hampshires, etc. These
breeds are generally hardy and well suited to
northeastern US production. They have a richer flavor
than the Cornish cross but are mostly dark meat with a
much smaller, thinner breast.
POUSSIN - Also known as a Cornish Game Hen. Young
Cornish Rock chicken, may be male or female, 2lbs or
less in weight, less than 6 weeks old.
BROILER - Also known as a fryer, may be male or
female, usually about 2½ - 4½ lbs in weight and 6-8
ROASTER - May be male or female, usually about
5-8 lbs in weight and 10-32 weeks old. Specified for
roasting because the thicker portions of the chicken are
not suitable for broiling or frying
CAPON - A surgically castrated rooster. Makes a
non-aggressive male that can serve as a father to baby
chicks. Produces ample, tender meat. WRP does not
produce this product and most humane standards exclude
All of the above are considered “young” chickens.
