It only takes one time trying our pasture raised chicken, and I promise you'll be hooked.
When cooking our chicken, there are several things you will notice compared to store bought chicken. The biggest difference is the substance of meat. Store bought chicken is made up of approximately 30% fecal water from where less ethical producers soak the chickens to increase scale weights to charge more. This is why chicken and other meat products have shrinkage during cooking. Benderman Farm chicken has NOT been soaked to increase weights. You'll find that our product does not shrink during cooking and has a more tender and substantive meat. That means it will take less meat to fill you up!

If it takes less meat to fill you up, our whole chicken will actually go further than you might think!
Take it from one of our customers:
"One of the biggest reasons I hear people give as to why they don't eat locally produced foods: "We can't afford it."
Remember that Benderman Farm whole chicken from last week? I spent $22.50 ($4.50/lb) on the bird, but made two family meals. A family of 5, folks. Ultimately, it was more than 10 individual meals, as we had a guest the first dinner and leftovers for lunch from both. Add in another $5 for additional ingredients for a total of $27.50.
Chicken & Dumplins' for Dinner #1 and Chicken Noodle Soup tonight for Dinner #2. $13.75 spent each night. $2.75 per plate. (Most likely around $1.96/plate when you factor our guest and leftover lunches).
Pretty dang affordable."

It's all about your perspective 🙂 with a little planning, our chicken will keep giving!
