Bresse chicken originates from La Bresse, France. The french take great pride in their Bresse and command a high price to purchase one ready for your table. The quality of flavour and texture of this marbleized meat stands out from the rest. This is a gourmet chicken and is well known for being one of the best tasting chickens in the world.

Bring Quality Food To Your Table! It is said, you are what you eat...
Imagine a bird that basks in the sun, sleeps in the shade, bathes in the dirt and chases its favourite bugs during the day.
This bird pecks at whatever he chooses, whichever grass or weed tempts her. Scratches in the dirt or visits a fresh large acre pond for a cool drink of water. Happy birds that live life as they were meant to live. This is how we raise our table birds.
