Don't forget to make your order in our new online store for pick up this weekend!
In case you needed another reason to choose our anti-biotic free pasture raised chickens they have now found arsenic in industrial chickens! Arsenic is highly poisonous to almost all animals-including chickens. You may be wondering how in the world did arsenic get into our chickens? A good question with a simple answer-arsenic is intentionally fed to the chickens to help suppress some of the many diseases the chickens get when raised in such crowded unsanitary conditions. The companies claim that the arsenic fed to the chickens could not possibly enter the meat. As you may imagine it turns out that what animals eat is typically found in their body, including their meat. Recently the FDA finally got the nerve to actually test some chicken meat and surprise, surprise, found arsenic present.
