John Henry’s Bone in Chicken

Hi everyone, it’s Alicia here, filling in while Katie is on maternity leave. I want to highlight our amazing bone in chicken for you.  Our butcher Jesse cuts it fresh right off a whole chicken just for you. We have wings, thighs, breasts, and drumsticks, all mouthwatering, lean, and juicy. There are so many things you can cook with them; your family will never be bored with dinner again!

There are so many foods I love to make using our John Henry’s bone in chicken.  Chicken soup, chicken & dumplings, fried chicken, BBQ chicken on the grill….Mmm! I like to keep a little of everything in my freezer, so that when the mood strikes I can whip up any of my favorites. My personal favorite is chicken and dumplings using my husband’s grandmother’s recipe. I use bone in thighs or drumsticks, boil them down to make the broth, and the meat falls right off the bone. My husband loves barbeque, so grilling out and using some of his sister’s special recipe BBQ sauce is a must for a summer party. And of course we can’t forget wings. My husband loves wings, and with all of the Wildtree recipes I can try something new every time.

Working here at John Henry’s has really opened my eyes to the differences between store bought meats and our pasture raised, grass fed meats. I don’t know about you, but I definitely like not having to worry about what is in the meat I am eating. I know that our chickens are only fed corn, alfalfa, peas, and bugs and that their feed is completely organic and GMO free. I do not have to worry that there will be any antibiotics, arsenic, or other drug residues. (I just can’t believe that those things are in the grocery store chicken I was eating before!) The most important thing to me though, is knowing our animals are raised humanely and are able to enjoy being outside in the pasture and that they are not subjected to the terrible abuse of factory farming.

Hormone Free Grass-Fed Beef, Pastured Turkey Pork, Open Range Chicken

The benefits of eating pasture raised, grass-fed meats are hard to deny. From the extra nutrients to the shaky ethics surrounding commercially raised animals, pasture-raised cows and free range chickens win every time. While we hear the most about steaks and beef, the same benefits can apply to any animal raised without hormones in its natural habitat. Typically pork or chicken is referred to as pasture raised, or free range instead, as these animals are natural omnivores and eat a little of everything. Our family farm produces grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and free range turkey and chicken. Our gourmet meats and dairy products are shipped fresh to customers in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and the Chicago, Illinois area. Pastured pork, beef, chicken, and turkey is not only better for the animal, but it’s also better for the consumer too. If you’ve shopped for meats at most grocery stores, you probably saw bright red packages of similar shapes and sizes, which is different from the varying packages of beef you would find when shopping with an small, local farmer. Each animal is unique, and John Henry’s doesn’t use steroids, hormones, or fatty feeds on our farm. This produces a higher-quality cut of meat that can vary in size, shape, and color depending on what muscles were exercised more. Grass-fed beef, and pasture raised turkey, pork, and chicken also have fat that is more yellow due to healthy beta carotenes that are present. We also cut each of our meats fresh and ship it to you the same day! If you haven’t tried grass-fed beef, pastured pork, or free range turkey and chicken you don’t know what you’re missing.
