We only breed slow-growing breeds in the wild that are accustomed to a rural life. Our goal is to offer a healthy, tasty, and excellent quality product without resorting to shortcuts of any kind. This is why we have chosen Label Fermier bare-necked chickens and bronzed and white turkeys.
The bare-necked chicken loves life in the wild. It was born in France where outdoor breeding breeds are an ancient tradition, thanks to the presence of numerous natural farms. It’s sturdy and slender body structure makes it an incredibly vital, great grazer that is always on the move in the open air in our woods and olive groves.
Long walks help to develop greater proportion in the anatomical parts, presenting a long and slender thigh, a less voluminous breast counterbalanced by a stomach twice the size of intensively reared chickens and much more developed wings. This makes our chickens even more capable of flying very small distances. For example, perching on the branches of olive trees. It also has fewer subcutaneous fat deposits, thinner skin and excellent infiltration of intramuscular fat making the flavor of the meat unmistakable and unforgettable.
The turkeys we raise are the bronzed and the white. A slow-growing breed suitable for outdoor grazing, so much so that they can also feed on acorns, brambles and oak leaves. Incredibly social and prone to life in a pack, its body conformation allows it to graze all day until evening in the spaces it wants, not being attacked by nocturnal predators and providing it with a higher content of vitamins and a lower content of fat in the meat.
