Pastured Poultry available for limited time…

We are so excited to be able to share this limited supply of our premium grass-fed chicken with our customers.  Our birds have been raised under the canopy of our heirloom walnut orchard, enjoying native pasture, locally-milled organic feed and the room to roam and range for whatever their hearts’ desire.  Processed on-farm the third week in July, they are ready to make their way from our farm to your table.  Because we have a very limited supply of White and Black American Bresse we are now offering them on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you haven’t signed up for our Buyer’s Club and would like a chance to enjoy some of the most storied poultry available, please email us at: info@sunbirdfarms.com, and we’ll be sure to add you to our list.  Our Buyer,s Club always gets advanced notice of any releases and the first opportunity to purchase.

Some “Egg-citing” News…

Wow friends, it’s been some time since we updated the blog.  Suffice it to say that things never slow down around here, but we have some really great things to update you on.

Barbezieux at The Vintage Press
Barbezieux at The Vintage Press

First, we had the absolute fortune of eating one of our very own Barbezieux at The Vintage Press in May.  Given their exceptional rarity, we didn’t want to take any chances on the preparation.  In short, it was the best chicken I have ever eaten in my life…full stop.  Roasted with fresh vegetables and accompanied by the many courses the VP has built its reputation on, the simple, yet exceptional preparation told us every thing we need to know about this famed chicken.  More exciting things to come on that front.  Many thanks to Greg and David, your support has been wonderful.

But back to eggs.  The demand for our eggs has exceeded our expectations. Continue reading Some “Egg-citing” News…

le Poulet de Barbezieux

Virtually unknown outside its own country, the French Barbezieux is a chicken who’s famous flavor has been delighting the fortunate few for centuries.  Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, author of the 1826 book “Physiology of Taste” and father of the the genre of food writing, described his first experience feasting on a Barbezieux as one “riddled with excitement.”  “What could be more pleasant than [this chicken] that grabs all the guests at the sight and smell of a beautiful Barbezieux?”  Indeed.

Recognized by the Gault et Millau (France’s most respected guide to dining) in 2001 as one of the best tasting chickens in all of France, this beautiful bird continues to excite gastronomes that are lucky enough to enjoy it.  Sunbird Farms will be one of the first to offer this award-winning chicken, the Barbezieux.  As of this post (May 2015), we are nearly ready to start sharing this beauty with our customers.  Stay tuned for more exciting information about our efforts with this breed in 2015.
