Mary’s Free Range Chickens is proud to lead the industry with a superior animal welfare program. The 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating Standards Program structure encourages higher welfare practices and systems to the benefit of farmers, consumers, retailers, and the animals. Chickens are cooled with a state of the art “Air Chill” system. Air Chill helps inhibit the spread of bacteria by keeping all of the chickens independent, and saves 30,000 gallons of chlorinated water every day! With no water added, the air chilled method keeps the “real” chicken flavor and juices. No water is absorbed, so you get the natural flavor of chicken.

It goes straight from the bag to the fryer, oven, or grill to fit any menu.
has been a Northwest tradition since 1935. Their guiding principle of “THE WAY NATURE INTENDED” is why their chicken is always fresh and raised in a natural and humane method. No Antibiotics, No Added Hormones … EVER! Birds are sourced from family-owned ranches in Oregon and Washington and 100% Vegetarian feed is given to the chickens, no animal fats or by-products. Sustainable Farming methods are in place at all of the ranches including efforts to recycle and conserve water and energy. Birds are humanely raised in spacious housing with natural light and ventilation and have access to the outdoors.
