Hey, all! I’m super excited to share something very special I think you’re going to love along with a great recipe for Cheesy Skillet Chicken Pot Pie!
Chances are you’ve heard of Perdue chicken because they’ve been around since 1920! That’s right, they’re celebrating 100 years this year!
However, Perdue is more than just chicken. Over the last ten years, Perdue Farms has transitioned from conventional chicken and turkey production to becoming the #1 supplier in the United States for organic chicken.
In addition to chicken, Perdue Farms has become a leader in premium beef, pork and lamb that is:
- Heritage breed
- Antibiotic-free (no antibiotics EVER)
- Certified humane
- Adheres to GAP standards
The company carries a full line of premium protein products and brands including:
- Niman Ranch
- Coleman Natural
- Perdue Chicken
- Perdue Harvestland
- Panorama Meats
- Spot Farms
- Full Moon
- And more!
Perdue Farms is quickly becoming the most trusted name in premium proteins. For 100 years, they’ve worked directly with small family farmers to raise animals with care and are passionate about farming, land preservation and healthy and nutritious food.
Because I grew up on a farm myself, all of this is very important to me!
Best of all, these premium proteins can be delivered directly to your door!
Because Perdue Farms is committed to being thoughtful stewards of the environment, they’ve taken the following steps to lessen their carbon footprint and protect and preserve our precious earth’s ecosystem when shipping their products:
- For every bundle shipped, they make a donation to the Arbor Day Foundation. The Arbor Day Foundation is working to replant damaged areas of our nation’s forests.
- The boxes are designed with sustainability in mind. Each cardboard box is 100% recyclable and insulated with Green Cell Foam® which is biodegradable, compostable and made from high-grade non-GMO cornstarch that dissolves in water. And friends, it’s crazy how well-insulated and totally frozen the box was when I received it!
- With each purchase, you receive a reusable and recyclable grocery bag to use to avoid using paper or plastic.
- Because bees and butterflies help to make one out of every three bites of food we take, a pollinator seed packet is included in every box so that you can plant a robust pollinator habitat near your home.
