As covered in Journal Sentinel’s increasingly good food section, the Jones family farm down in Racine delivers great eggs and chicken to the doorstep of people on Milwaukee’s southeast side, between Racine and Bay View, west to 27th Street. We’ve had them deliver to our house for several months now, and quite simply, we love it. Their eggs are far better than anything I’ve bought at even the most organic or natural food oriented store, and their chicken is just to die for.
The chickens arrive feathered, but you do have the whole headless remainder of the bird to deal with. About all we dispose of is the neck — everything else gets used up, from the meat to the bones. You could get a book from the library to find out how to use the bones to make stock. And then enjoy the flavor of what you can more readily eat. I’ll never go back to store-bought chicken again so long as I can help it!
