Pastured Heritage Chicken


Packaged whole chicken weigh from 2-to-4 pounds. All-natural, pasture-raised from 2 weeks of age. Hatched and harvested on Melissahof near Lander, Wyo. These are the brothers of the female chicks sold across the Cowboy State in spring 2022 from Melissahof Hatchery.

In culinary terms, these whole chickens are sometimes called “poussin” for small eating chicken. They’re sized to suite your crockpot or are excellent as spatchcocks – halved whole chicken grilled or baked – for your dinner gatherings.

Impressed and grateful

I am so impressed & grateful for a wonderful business like this! I first ordered a frozen chicken & have since ordered another. It was very clean & great tasting & without all the “bad” stuff. I got 3 pullets in October that have been laying regularly for at least a month. They are hearty birds & did well in that below zero temperatures. Recently, I noticed the frozen garlic which is wonderful. It’s so good to support a Wyoming business that is doing things right. Yes it costs more but doing what’s right often does.

At Melissahof we know that you want to be a community supporter – of farmers, ranchers and working landscapes. For you to do that, you need good food. Much of available chicken meat can be bland and woody, which is disgusting, and deprives you of healthy life. Melissa believes food connects us. That you have the right to flavorful, nutrient-dense food, which why she raises poultry to regenerate people and land alike.

Here’s how we do it together:

  1. Melissa pasture raises rooster chicks from her hatchery and harvests them.
  2. You order the Melissahof pastured heritage chicken meat on or
  3. You eat healthy and holistically.

So, order now. And, in the meantime, you plan out your good food. There’s chicken dumplings, pot pie, pan-fried, fricasseed, souffle, and so much more deliciousness!

Stop eating chalky chicken and instead enjoy the flavor of Wyoming community.
