         Mary’s Free-Range California Bronze Air Chilled Chickens are raised with the highest standards. They are grown on a pasture field in the sunny valley of California. These chickens have places to perch. They are given areas to dust bathe. These chickens are treated with great respect and compassion. Mary's Free-Range California Bronze Air Chilled Chickens are a slower growing breed, taking more time to grow before being sent to market. These chickens are living a lifestyle and environment that is closest to their natural state. 


         Mary’s Free-Range California Bronze Air Chilled Chickens are processed and cooled individually using cold air, rather than the more commonly used method of placing the chickens in a communal bath of water. This air chilled method prevents the absorption of water, greatly reducing any potential of bacterial cross contamination.

         All of Mary's chickens grow naturally with plenty of room to roam in a caring environment on ranches in sunny California. Mary’s Chickens are fed a high quality vegetable diet with no animal by-products or additives. Every effort is made to treat our chickens as humanely as possible throughout the production process.
