Why we sell chickens with their heads and feet on

In Australia, we’ve become so conditioned by the supermarkets into buying our meat cut into tiny pieces wrapped in shrink wrap packaging.

This is sad.  What this means is, we’ve lost connection with the fact that the meat we’re eating was once an animal. 

That’s why, at Milking Yard Farm, we’ve made the decision  to sell our birds ‘whole’ -  meaning complete, natural, with their heads and feet on.

We think this restores some of the connection, helping people to remember this was once a live chicken!

Of course, for our e-store, or CSA customers, we’re happy to take the heads and feet off, or cut them into portions – to make it easier for you.

To us, it’s about starting the conversation about animals as food.

Face your food.
