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 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. 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.

Melissahof is a small-scale holistic farm with a rare heritage breed poultry hatchery and about a 1/4 acre of heirloom garlic. The ecosystem and entire lifecycle of poultry is considered. The pastured poultry – all purebred heritage breeds – produce eggs, meat and baby chicks. The eggs from the breeding hens are set in the incubator to hatch into chicks or sold as nutrient-rich table eggs. The pullets, healthy and stress-free from avoiding extended shipment, thrive in egg-laying flocks across Wyoming. The rooster chicks, the McNuggets, happily run the pasture until they “meat” their destiny as flavorful, nutritious food.
