These whole chickens are likely the best chicken you've ever had. (Read the glowing reviews!) Lots of folks roast a chicken once a week - and get not only dinner out of the chicken, but leftovers good for days afterward.
We've added a choice when it comes to chicken. We're pleased to welcome Commonwealth Poultry in Gardiner, Maine to the Heartstone Farm family. And, of course, we're still offering Tide Mill Organic Farm chicken.
What's the difference between Tide Mill and Commonwealth?
Tide Mill chickens are organic, and Commonwealths are not. That's it.
They both deliver chicken that has exceptional flavor. They both work with small family farms to source their chickens - so the care and treatment of the birds is night and day from factory farms. And the processing is similar - both are right here in Maine, USDA-inspected and air chilled.
Raising chicken that qualifies for organic certification is more expensive - and the result Is a premium price for chicken from Tide Mill.
It's a personal choice - but we're proud of the chicken from both Tide Mill and Commonwealth - and we're happy to offer you a choice.
Create your own tradition - with a Whole Chicken that will remind you of the flavor chicken used to have.
"I roasted a Tide Mill whole chicken yesterday and my family LOVED it! I kept it simple, just put a little salt in the cavity, roasted at 350 degrees for 90 minutes, basting a few times, and taking the roaster cover off for the last 30 minutes. It was plump, juicy, and SO TASTY and TENDER! We are looking forward to the leftovers and I am going to continue to get my chicken from Heartstone Farm!" - Martha Horne, Holden, Maine

Our standards for chicken are high. It has to be wonderfully flavorful. The chickens must be all-natural, never receiving antibiotics or growth hormones. We insist on air-chilling in the processing to
It’s really important to us that the chickens come from family farms - not factory farms.
We’re proud to be working with two great sources for chicken here in Maine.
We’ve been partnering with Tide Mill Organic Farm in Edmunds, Maine for over two years and their dedication to producing and processing great organic chicken is truly impressive.
Now, we’re excited to welcome an additional chicken source - Commonwealth Poultry in Gardiner, Maine.
Both Commonwealth and Tide Mill produce great chicken - the only real difference is that Tide Mill is certified organic and Commonwealth is not.
That’s a personal choice for our customers - but know this: either way you’ll be getting great chicken.
