Our free-range poultry

Our free-range products

Birds bearing the “Orléanais” label are the main source of free-range poultry from the central region of France.

The Orléanais production area is historically defined by three French départements and their adjointing cantons: Loiret, Loir-et-Cher and Eure-et-Loir.

Poultry here are raised following traditional methods and are characteristic of their region of origin:

• Birds of traditional slow-growing French strains.

• Birds raised in the open on grassy, well-shaded land.

• A diet consisting 100% of plant material, minerals and vitamins.

• A lifespan of at least 81 days (twice that of poultry raised in standard conditions).

Grown for at least 100 days, the blue-footed Authentique is a heavy breed with firm, succulent meat. Fed on dairy products in the latter stages of its life, it is exceptionally delicious.
