Impress your taste buds with a Slow Cooker Coq Au Vin recipe. Save the bones for nutrient rich bone broth.  Another great meal is cooking in a slow cooker with your favorite broth. Once the meat is falling off the bone (about 12 hours), drain. Reserve the broth for soup or gravy.  Enjoy the chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy, in a chicken soup or  mix in your favorite sauce for an amazing pulled BBQ!

 

Raised Right:

Soy and corn free pasture raised chickens contain no pesticides, hormones, or antibiotics ever. By humanely harvesting, some of our roosters families can choose an ethical quality food for their family rather than funding factory farms. We should all be thankful and appreciate where our food comes from. Our birds are raised as free a life as possible while still protecting them from predators. Since they are not overcrowded and fed properly, no antibiotics are necessary.

 

Fed Right:

They enjoy the freedom of foraging on acres of pasture every day, eating a naturally omnivorous diet of grasses, bugs, and vegetation. We also provide them with the Organic Scratch and Peck feed, our fresh sprouting mix, and herbs we sell. Pasture raised birds contain more nutrients than organic or conventionally raised meat birds. Typically, as much as 50% higher than conventional chickens in antioxidant rich Vitamin E, and 300% higher in heart healthy Omega 3’s. Living as nature intended, our chickens enhance the health of the land and provide your family with dinner.

 

Humanely Harvested:

Free from injected broths and carrageen that are commonly found in grocery store chicken. We raise our own heritage breed roosters to give responsible meat eaters the ability to choose roosters raised right and humanely harvested versus the lower industry standards found at a grocery store. The main reason we believe in harvesting our own birds is to bypass the cruelty. It should be an emotionally difficult connection to the animal that gives its life so that we can live. We believe in giving animals a nice natural life on our homestead.

 

Heritage Chicken: Since heritage chickens get the opportunity to live a good adult life. We price them lower than our cost to raise to help avoid over population of layer/ dual purpose breed roosters.

 

Slow Cooker Coq au Vin:
Let the flavors meld together for hours in a slow cooker, and enjoy a restaurant-quality meal from the comfort of your home. Coq au vin is a classic French delicious dish with a reputation of impressing guests for centuries for succulent chicken and a rich and flavorful sauce.

If you have time, making a mushroom sauce is a huge flavorful difference.  If in a rush or budget restricted, use a can of cream of mushroom instead.  For the sauce: Add 4 oz(120 g) sliced shiitake mushrooms, 4 oz(120 g) Sliced Portobello mushrooms, 4 oz(120 g) Sliced Oyster mushrooms, 4 oz(120 g) Sliced Cremini mushrooms, in the saucepan with butter and cognac.   After cooking for 10 minutes over medium-high heat, add 1/2 cup white wine and cook until the liquid has evaporated. Remove the mix from heat, transfer to a blender or food processor, and puree until smooth. 


Turn heat to low for an additional 12 hours and add: 4 slices bacon, diced, 3 green onions, sliced, 1 cup (250 g) frozen pearl onions, thawed, 6 small new potatoes, cut into halves, 16 ounces cream of mushroom soup, or above mushroom sauce.  
In a small mixing bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of the slow cooker broth. Stir well until the cornstarch is dissolved. Then, add back to the slow cooker; stirring 2-3 minutes.   Serve with cooked pasta.
