Upgrade to pasture-raised, pioneer chicken
Astounding flavor & health. Global impact.
No Antibiotics Ever
Over 99% of all chickens on the market today, including organic, free-range chicken, come from one breed: the Cornish Cross breed. Bred for size and speed to market, these birds taste bland and rubbery, plus they are nutritionally inferior.
Cooks Venture’s Pioneer is a different breed of chicken. Bred to maximize the birds’ health and taste, the Pioneer’s meat is rich and deeply flavored, like chicken raised prior to the 1950s.

Our heritage chicken and meats are bred to be healthy and strong, spending everyday outside on pasture.
We take care of the land we farm with regenerative farming methods and agroforestry systems that lead to nutrient-rich soil.
Healthier animals equals healthier meat you can eat with confidence.
"I tried one of your chickens and am buying more. Not only was the bird not too fatty, but the flavor was exceptional! You are doing everything right! Keep it up."
"The chickens have the flavor I remember from my youth on farms in Ohio. The care with which they are processed, air chilled, and then frozen allows the texture to surpass any other commercially available birds."
"We made the switch to Cooks Venture for our chicken and they are by far the best we can get. Small but careful growers of high quality chicken."

"I love Cooks Venture chicken! I started buying the whole chickens and have bought many of their bundled boxes since I learned about them. I stopped buying meat that was not local, ethical, and raised in an environmentally sensitive manner. It helps that it is the most delicious chicken I have ever bought and cooked!"
"This chicken is what chicken is all about. Cooks perfectly every time and it tastes the way chicken should taste. I've fried, air fried, baked, bbq, and rotisserie. It comes out perfect all the time. I couldn't ever go back to store-bought again."
"I'm so excited for what Cook’s Venture has, uh, cooking. CV chickens are in taste, texture, and overall cooking performance is unmatched in my experience. It’s got a classic chicken flavor. Price is reasonable for the quality of the product, and we really feel like we’re making a meaningful contribution to better farming practices, at CV and beyond."
Most of us aspire to eat food that is good for us, but many of the buzzwords that we see on food labels no longer mean what we think. At Cooks Venture, we are committed to providing food for you and your family that is unparalleled in quality and taste, while leaving the earth better for the next generation.
