Grow and Behold is proud to partner with the Jewish Initiative for Animals to bring the first kosher heritage chickens to market in over 50 years. We are grateful for their support and couldn't have done it without them.

What is Heritage Chicken? A Heritage Egg can only be produced by an American Poultry Association Standard breed. A Heritage Chicken is hatched from a heritage egg sired by an American Poultry Association Standard breed established prior to the mid-20th century. It is slow growing, naturally mated, and enjoys a long productive outdoor life. Heritage Chicken grow slowly, producing meat that is dark, nutty, rich, and lean with a unique and special flavor like no other. Find more information about heritage poultry breeds here
