The Old-Fashioned Way
Mary’s Chicken comes from Pitman Family Farms, a third-generation family ranch that raises free-range, organic, air-chilled and non-GMO poultry. These are chickens raised the old-fashioned way, without confining cages, antibiotics, or growth hormones. The chickens are fed a vegetarian diet, free of GMOs and gluten, for their health and yours.
Who is Mary?
Mary’s father-in-law, Don, founded the farm, and she and her husband continued the family tradition. Mary’s name is on the chickens because of her dedication to serving her own family only the best, all-natural foods. She spent decades studying nutrition and reading labels to preserve her family’s health. Today, Mary and Rick’s son David runs the company, ensuring that every chicken meets the strict standards that
The Air-Chilled Difference
Conventional chicken is chilled in a chlorinated ice water bath. In contrast, Mary’s Chicken is air-chilled, which helps inhibit the spread of bacteria among the chickens and prevents the meat from absorbing extra water.
The result? A difference you can see and taste: real chicken flavor, natural juices, crispier skin after cooking, and more tender meat. Not to mention, conservation of 30,000 gallons of chlorinated water per day!
Mary’s is the first ranch in the industry to become verified GMO-free by the Non-GMO Project. Mary’s participates in the 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating Standards Program with Global Animal Partnership, earning the first “5” rating in the country for its California Bronze chicken.
