Our stewing hens are truly an old-fashioned traditional favorite. These are older flavorful free-range hens that have lived a full life on pastures. Stewing hens are sought after for their superior nutrient value that comes at a lower cost. Stewing hens need to be cooked at a low heat for several hours before they will become tender. When cooked correctly, however, stewing hens yield delicious meat and rich, flavorful chicken stock. It will remind you of grandma's kitchen!
