We exclusively use a white mountain broiler chicken on our farm. The white broilers are a quiet and calm breed that are excellent foragers. After years of raising and testing multiple breeds, we found the white mountain broiler to be the best on pasture and produced and nice, tender, and consistent flavor. We hand load our chickens for processing and give them one final full chicken body massage before transport. It not only calms them for the trip, but helps produce a more tender product (in our opinion).
