Normally part of the giblet package they are also eaten individually or along with the livers. Gizzards are an acquired taste but pack a lot of protein. Ours are vacuum sealed in approximately 1 pound packages.
Pastured animals have less fat content than commodity animals. Please keep this in mind when cooking that you may need to add some oil. For best results do not thaw or cook in microwave. We have found that allowing it to thaw slowly and cooking with a slow wet heat provides the best results. If you are preparing a whole bird we recommend that it be cooked with the breast down. White meat cooks faster than dark and as it bakes juices from the dark meat drain down into the breast helping to keep it moist.
Our Broilers are started indoors for the first week then moved to outside brooders. Around 3 weeks they are put on mixed grass pastures in portable pens that are moved regularly to provide access to green grass, bugs, fresh air and sunshine. They are supplemented with a starter/grower feed that is custom blended for us at a local feed mill. We do not use antibiotics, growth promoters, hormones or feed animal by-products.
