What are slow-growth chickens? Posted on 11 Sep 07:00
Emmer & Co.’s chickens are 100% pasture raised, and grown using regenerative agriculture practices. But starting with the right birds is equally important, which is why we’ve chosen to raise slow-growth chickens. Slow-growth birds develop at a balanced rate, taking at least 2X as long to grow as industrial Cornish Cross chickens. Raising these chickens takes lots of patience and TLC, but we know the hard work is worth it because slow-growth birds are able to live healthy, active lives and their meat is so noticeably dense and deeply flavorful.
