About this product
When you need a more nutrient dense chicken broth, there's nothing better than our pastured chicken bones. Raised in small batches by a network of dedicated Amish and Mennonite growers, our poultry are moved to fresh pasture daily where they roam and forage freely. They are fed exclusively GMO-free grain, never any hormones, antibiotics or animal by-products.
Use these pastured chicken bones to make homemade chicken soup or chicken bone broth; if you like, combine them with Chicken Necks and/or other cuts of chicken as well. These necks will bring a hearty richness to your next pot of soup, which is the oldest Jewish cure-all for whatever ails you.
Basic Cooking Technique:
Use for soup. Simmer with celery, carrots and onions to make a nutrient-dense, nourishing broth. We recommend about 4lbs bones and one pack necks or wings per batch of soup.
Products are packed with coolant during their journey to ensure they arrive in great shape. Meats will arrive frozen or refrigerated. Most of our products are shipped frozen; occasionally, due to a very quick turnaround between when the meats arrive at our freezing and distribution facility and when they are delivered to you, meats may be shipped fresh. Meat that is cold to the touch can be refrigerated for immediate use, or frozen for later use. Learn more.

I only use these now for my chicken soup. I wrap a package full in a cheesecloth bag (usually I use 2 x 1.5lb packages), bring it to a boil in a large pot and let it simmer for a very long time... adding in onions, other vegetables, etc. Then, the next day I scrape the layer of fat off and start over cooking the broth with fresh vegetables for about 20 minutes. Sometimes I'll add in some drumsticks or thighs. The bones are clean, fresh, even meaty. And it's a lot more economical than using complete pieces of meat. Thanks Grow & Behold! Best chicken soup I've made!
Love the chicken soup bones! I use them to make bone broth. Great quality!
I have been making my chicken soup with these bones and one whole chicken (plus all the veggies, herbs, etc). They make a fabulous, nutritious, and excellent soup. I cook the bones and chicken to make a rich broth that I used to make using pounds of chicken. Use about 5-6 lbs. of bones & enjoy the taste and savings!
Just made an amazingly delicious chicken broth from about 6 lbs. mixture of necks & bones. Strained, added water and added 3 lb. chicken + vegetables to make soup. My point being: very economical way to make delicious chicken soup. I could have served as was from the bones and necks alone, but needed more soup. Much tastier & lower cost than making from 6 lbs. of chicken!
I cooked soup for the first time using these bones and was pleasantly surprised that it came out as well as when I use a whole chicken. The only change I made was cooking the soup for a longer period of time.
These bones made the best chicken soup broth! It was so flavorful! Thanks so much!
The quality far exceeds anything else I can find in the kosher market. This is a relatively inexpensive way to up your soup game. I used the Bobby Flay method to roast the bones for 45 minutes before cooking on a low flame overnight. Nothing beats the taste!
Made delicious soup! Had a nice amount of meat on it, though I was just using it for flavor I will definitely use next time.i make chicken soup!
How Many Pieces Will I Receive?
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.
How Much Does It Weigh?
We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:
|Potential Weight Variance
|under ~0.95 lb
|+/- 0.15 lb
|~1 lb to ~3.9 lb
|+/- 0.25 lb
|~4 lb to ~10 lb
|+/- 0.5 lb
|over ~10 lb
|+/- 1 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.75 lb or as little as 1.25 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~5 lb could weigh as much as 5.5 lb or as little as 4.5 lb
We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
