We know we're biased, but is there anything better than a roast whole chicken? Whole chickens are a perenielly favorite dinner option, perfect for everyday and delicious enough for a special occasion. You'll taste the difference.
Cooks Venture chicken is not your ordinary chicken. In fact, we're a whole different breed. The meat is juicy with real rich chicken flavor. Our heirloom birds are pasture-raised, living outdoors in the Arkansas sunshine. They eat a diverse blend of Non-GMO feed in addition to plenty of insects and natural foliage on our regenerative farm.

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."
