Our Farms

IT’S ABOUT HOW WE FARM

animal welfare & environmental impact is at the center of it all

Every step of farming—from breeding and raising animals humanely,  to implementing regenerative agriculture system—contributes to the amazing flavor of our meats. 

We work with nature, not fight against it. And you can taste the difference.


CONSCIENTIOUS MEAT IS POSSIBLE

 

Practicing our values isn’t about patting ourselves on the back. It’s actually what makes our chicken delicious, because every step of the process affects the health and taste of the meat. These are the standards we hold ourselves to, and we ask them to be upheld by our farmers and ranchers.

  • Healthy chickens raised without antibiotics

  • Ample space to roam and forage on natural pasture

  • Creating biodiverse, fertile soil through regenerative rotational grazing

THE RESULTS

  • Higher in antioxidants & omega 3’s

  • Higher in vitamins, including vitamin A 

  • Supports a healthy immune system 

  • Insanely delicious

Processing Facilities

to truly commit to changing the food system, we must commit to fair labor practices and livable wages

Cooks Venture is proud to be part of the Oklahoma Quality Jobs program at our poultry processing plant. Participation in the program demonstrates our commitment to livable wages in our county for our employees.
  

As a vertically integrated business, our chickens are processed at our facility by hand and air-chilled on-site. We only work with partners whose values align with our own. We must be stewards, not only of the land, but everyone on it.

ANIMAL BREEDS

a better breed equals better meat—the difference is astounding

Did you know chickens have been bred into two breeds, and they dominate 99% of the market? Cooks Venture offers another option. We are the only breeder in America with no ties to the two, globally consolidated genetics companies. Our birds are healthy, as nature intended.


PASTURE-RAISED Chicken

This is the best chicken on the market because, at Cooks Venture, health and flavor come first for our pasture-raised birds. 


Our livestock develops juicier meat that is deeply flavored and more tender than that of conventional chicken. We air-chill our birds, so the skin is crispier when cooked and the meat has a noticeably better texture. In 10 out of 10 blind taste tests, our chicken is preferred over the competition!

  • Decades of breeding & husbandry to develop our special heirloom breed

  • Unlimited outdoor access on our 800-acre farm in Northwest Arkansas

  • Non-GMO Project Verified feed

  • Air-chilled

  • No antibiotics ever

GRASS-FED & GRASS-FINISHED BEEF

Our cattle are grass-fed and grass-finished. They roam freely on pastures their entire lives, eating their natural diet of grass, which supports a regenerative grazing cycle, restores grasslands, and sequesters carbon. These rotational ranching practices lead to better land management, healthier soil and deeply flavored meat. 

  • Grass-Fed & grass-finished 

  • Humane treatment of cattle

  • No added hormones

HERITAGE PORK

Our heritage, slow-growth pigs come from a diversified stock of breeding, resulting in exceptional marbling throughout the meat. Raised with unrestricted access to the outdoors, our pork is more flavorful than other modern breeds.

  • Grass-fed & grass-finished

  • Raised on pasture, foraging outside

  • No antibiotics ever

GRASS-FED & GRASS-FINISHED LAMB

Our lambs are 100% grass-fed and grass-finished. They roam freely on pastures their entire lives, which supports a regenerative grazing cycle, restores grasslands, and sequesters carbon. These rotational ranching practices lead to better land management, healthier soil, and deeply flavored meat.

  • Grass-fed & finished

  • Holistic, regenerative grazing and low-stress livestock

  • Never fed corn or corn bi-products

Our wild seafood is always responsibly sourced from our network of trusted and accredited fisheries. With offerings varying seasonally, our collection is held to the highest standards to protect the health of our oceans.

  • Traceable back to a certified fishery

  • Never frozen prior to processing
