If you’ve ever been tempted to think of chicken as simply a vehicle for sauces, or as something to be overshadowed by the cooking technique- you’re in for a grand surprise. Bushy Tail Farm in Saxapahaw raises “poulet-rouge" style chickens, which are in essence, a cross between a heritage breed chicken and a faster-growing commercial chicken. These birds live on pasture and in garden plots, supplementing their diet with bugs, forage, and vegetable scraps. The result is a well-sized bird with great flavor and the integrity that we think a chicken should have.
We’ll keep you up-to-date as we source duck, turkey, and goose throughout the year.
(See our under “Left Bank” for general information about our meat) Nearly all of our meat is butchered from whole animals raised on nearby farms. Although we do our best to keep a wide variety of meats in stock, our dedication to whole animals and local farms means that our selection of cuts will vary day to day, week to week, and from season to season. To us, this is the fun of eating locally. We encourage our customers to call us to place special orders, and we will do our best to source particular cuts of meat.
