Tide Mill Organic Farm/Commonwealth Poultry
Chicken Thighs (with skin and bone)
4 thighs per package/ bone-in skin-on
The flavor of these chicken thighs is outstanding. They are bone-in and skin-on (the way they should be in our opinion). Perfect for barbecuing or any of your recipes calling for thighs.
Or keep it simple - sautéed in olive oil with a bit of seasoning and then finished in the over - you've got a great 25 minute dinner!
NEW! We've just 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 chicken thighs that will remind you of the flavor chicken used to have when you were a kid.

FARMER DAN: HOW WE SOURCE OUR CHICKEN
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 lock in the great flavor.
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.
We love it when our customers share recipes. Here's one of our favorites from Sandra McKalip (a customer), in Indianapolis, IN:
"I seared the chicken thighs skin side down over medium heat for about 3-5 minutes then placed in a preheated 375 degree oven to finish. I removed the chicken to rest and deglazed the pan with white wine and a splash of honey balsamic vinegar for a quick pan sauce. The flavor, moistness and texture are outstanding."
