    These were the meatiest cornish hens I've ever had. I found a really terrific recipe that used apricot jam and dried apricots, and the flavors melded together beautifully. Well received by my company!

    Still getting used to much less fat, so leaner meat.

    Incredibly tasty, juicy and melt-in-your mouth tender! It tastes like the chickens we raised when I was a child, so I know pastured chicken!

    Delivery was as promised. Hens were well frozen and I had no need to worry about spoilage. I would absolutely do business again with this company when the need arises.

    Poultry , beef and lamb are worth the cost

    Posted by Robin on Apr 1st 2021

    I am still exploring Grow and Behold. While I am still hesitant about the pricing, I do see a value in the products. Poultry seems to be less gamey and more subtle in flavor and texture than mass market products. My husband compliments all of it, as well as beef products and lamb we have tried so far. We will be trying other things.

    I never liked Cornish hens before as they are really just small, flavorless chickens. But not these from G&B. I bought one at the request of a family member a while ago, and everyone had a taste. That was it. We're hooked on the perfect main course, L'kavod Shabbos. The smaller ones are flavorful and very tender, the larger ones are more flavorful and a bit firmer. The Cornish hen trims are just as delicious, only they might be missing a wing or otherwise slightly marred. I hesitated before recommending as I don't want them to run out, but in the spirit of Ahavat Yisrael, I recommend you try this fantastic bird. (Roasted is perfect. Spatchcocked and braised is also good.)

    I roasted the hens with wild rice, white wine and chicken broth. Tender and moist. Will buy again many times. My husband said it was the best I’d ever made. We’ve been married 51 years.

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:  

Selected WeightPotential 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

For example: 

  • 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.
