- Bred in France for hundreds of years for a high-pasture diet
- American Bresse are imported from the Bresse region of France, and we give them more pasture than the French Bresse standard.
- Bresse “has the reputation of being the best quality table chicken in the world”.
- In 1825, one of the world's first and greatest foodies, the 19th-century epicure and gastronome Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, described the bird as "the queen of chickens, and the chicken of kings". *pastured on >1200 square feet per chicken per year* on diverse vegetation for vitamins, minerals, soil biota, and your nutrition: higher omega-3s, CLAs, & vitamin E
- *rotationally grazed* for avoiding pathogen cycles, with clean pasture and a fresh salad every day
- *beyond-organic fed* with feed mix having no soy and a huge diversity of over 80 all-organic ingredients
- *humanely bred* for mobility, very low stress, health, & heartiness
- *ethically selected*, growing both males and females
- *able to express natural species behavior*, foraging, scratching, digging, & thrivng
- *harvested ethically* for very low stress hormones, precision dressing for maximum nutrition, & no artificial chemicals
