Mary’s Chicken – “Raised the old fashioned way”

Mary’s Free Range Chicken is proud to be family owned and operated since 1954.  The business began with Don Pitman in 1954 and now it’s in its 3rd generation with his grandson, David.  When Don’s son, Rick, took over he decided to name the turkeys and chickens after his wife, Mary.  He did this because “she has studied nutrition and read labels for 25 years, looking for pure products in an effort to regain her health”.  The chickens are raised in a stress-free environment that is four times the size of an average commercial ranch where they can roam free.  This allows for the production of a “healthier and happier chicken” resulting in a better taste.

Mary’s is the first in the industry to be verified with the Non-GMO Project.  They currently hold a step 3 rating which means that all chickens have access to the outdoors, the outdoor spaces include plenty of water and shade, and provide bales of straw and eucalyptus tree branches to enrich the natural behaviors of the chickens.  All the chickens are also fed an organic, vegetarian diet.
