Butcher Box Chicken IS Different

All of our Chickens are free to roam, vegetarian grain-fed, raised on local Ontario farms, without the use of hormones and free from antibiotics

We Sell Chicken, Not Water

Most of the chicken sold in local grocery stores are water chilled.  During the process, the producers submerge the chickens in a vat of cold water in order to reduce bacteria.  This creates a few problems.  

1.  Anytime you put anything in water, it takes on the water adding weight to the chicken.  Now instead of paying for chicken, you're also paying for water.

2. As you cook the chicken, the water starts to evaporate or steam the chicken.  The result, the chicken shrinks and tastes rubbery.  

You can see this for yourself, if you've ever purchased chicken in a bag and at the bottom of the bag there is water ... that's the water leaking out of the chicken.  

3.  As the bacteria levels increase in the water, the processes add a food grade bleach to the water .. so now you've just added a chemical to the food that you and your family will be eating.

4.  Some stores, in order to reduce the retail price, pump the chicken.  In this process a syringe containing a saline solution is injected into the chicken, adding more liquid, salt and more weight to the chicken.   

There is a Difference

There is a process called Air Chilled, and just as it sounds, the chickens are cooled by cold air and not water.  This process takes longer adding cost however the difference is significantly noticeable.  

At Butcher Box, we only carry Ontario air chilled, grain fed, free range poultry, raised without any hormones or steroids.  Combine that with the air chilling process and the result is the best tasting, better cooking and safer products for you and your family.
