Here at Pasture to Plate, we are famous for our succulent, grass-fed, all-natural British Columbia beef. However, did you know that we also sell quality, organic BC chicken too? Yes, at Pasture to Plate, our aim is to bring you meat in many different forms but with one thing in common — and that is that all of our meat is 100% organic certified.
Located in our new barn, you will find our chicks which have been hatched from eggs from unmedicated and unvaccinated chickens. To keep our chickens’ meat organic, they are fed only organic food in the form of organic grain, sea salt and spring water — nothing else! Then once they are big enough, which is determined by their feather growth, they will go out to pasture.
We believe that free range, cruelty free, grass fed BC chickens create the best meat. Our fence is moved every few weeks so that our chickens have consistently fresh pickings. This means grains, grass and insects — all natural and organic and everything a chicken could want.
Then at nine to eleven weeks, our chickens are ready for harvest. And trust us, they are worth the wait. Many non-organic BC chicken farmers pump their BC chickens full of antibiotics in order to make them grow bigger and quicker. However, this is completely unnatural and the weight that they put on is unhealthy fat, not the lovely, lean meat which our BC chicken boasts. It is also risky for humans to consume, as we too will ingest those antibiotics and this is something most of us realize is not good.
This BC chicken is so superior to non-organic, mass-produced chicken. It tastes incredibly juicy and flavorsome. Chicken is a fabulously healthy meat, full of nutrients and you will find use for most parts of the chicken, from the bones that make a nutritious broth, to the skin that is addictive when cooked to a crisp.
If you live in BC, or happen to be in the area, then you will not want to miss out on our BC chicken. Better for your health and the local economy, Pasture to Plate meat is full of benefits. You’ll find our BC chicken in our Commercial Drive store, if you live in Vancouver. We also encourage nearby customers to buy from KINIKINIK in Redstone, where you will get a 20% no transport discount, making our organic BC chicken even sweeter!
