Poultry

Our chickens come from a small organic farming collective in the Shenandoah Valley where they’re fed an all-vegetarian, GMO-free blend of corn and soybean meal. In addition to their feed, they’re free to roam during the day where they can forage for bugs, grubs, worms, and tasty greens in their pasture.

As certified by the Human & Global Animal Partnership, our chickens are raised with the highest standards, including having houses with windows and natural light, fresh bedding and a 2-3 week resting period between each flock. They have constant access to outdoor grassy pastures with lots of shade. Offering even more peace of mind to you, each chicken is traceable to the farm where it was raised, creating a bridge between farm and consumer.

Our turkey is raised on American Humane Association-certified family farms in North Carolina, which has a long, rich tradition of poultry farming. The birds have regular access to outdoor pastures with plenty of grass and shade. They’re fed an all-vegetarian diet and always remain antibiotics, steroids and hormone-free.

At Rastelli’s, we are committed to sourcing the best ingredients we can from responsible farmers who care. We’re always working toward continuous improvement. That’s why we are joining the ASPCA® in a nationwide effort to improve the lives of animals. As such, by 2024, we will source all our chickens from farms that have earned the Global Animal Partnership certification and we will require that chickens are processed using a multi-step CAS processing system, which is widely considered more humane.
