I have ordered chickens from Country Lane Farms many times. We have always been very happy with the chickens! The process for ordering is also simple. There is an online order form and then you pick up the chicken from a list of locations in Calgary.
We have almost always ordered a 5 pack of whole chickens. It’s great because you can share and get others hooked on real chicken! We have also purchased beef (which they resell for a nearby ranch).
All we do to cook the chicken is rinse it off and put it in the oven in a cast iron dutch oven. I leave it covered for the first hour or so and then take the lid off to allow the top to brown. Nothing else… Perfect every time.
