Chicken at Mississippi Market
The chicken we sell at Mississippi Market comes from three different growers that have impecable records in raising their animals humanely: Kadejan Farms in Kerkhoven, MN, Schultz Organic Farm in Owatonna, MN, and Gerber Amish Farm in Kidron, OH.
We are proud of our long-standing relationships with the local farmers at Kadejan and Schultz Organic. We are also happy to provide value-priced chicken from Gerber Amish Farm. All of these growers take excellent care of their birds.
~ Kadejan, Schultz, and Gerber turn the barn lights off at night, allowing their chickens to actually sleep. Most chicken farms leave the lights on 24 hours a day so the chickens just keep eating.
~ All chicken sold at the co-op have had space to move around in the barns.
~ All chickens have had access to the outdoors where they get exercise. In fact we were told by Kadejan that, “when you catch our birds, you have to chase them.”
~ All chickens have been raised free of growth hormones.
You can rest assured that the chicken sold at Mississippi Market come from farms that have room to roam and are never give growth stimulants. Ulimately, the chicken that you find at the co-op is flavorful and delicious thanks to the humane treatment they recieve on these farms.
