Product Review: Coleman Organic Chicken

Updated on October 19, 2012

Coleman Natural Foods has been in business since 1875. This company has very strict standards--the use of antibiotics and growth hormones in their chickens is prohibited. The chickens are fed a vegetarian diet and are allowed to mature naturally. Coleman's sustainability practices set a good example for other companies that raise poultry as well as other animals.

I'm fortunate enough to have access to Coleman's products from time to time. My favorite product from this company is the organic chicken. I've never been disappointed with these chickens. This product speaks for itself after the package is opened: plump chickens without a lot of extra fat; and with very-healthy looking skin.They've obviously been raised well and processed with care.

There is another great bonus with these chickens: the neck and giblets. Many years ago, all processed chickens had the neck and giblets available--whether the chickens were fryers, hens or anything between. Somewhere along the line, most companies decided that they could make more money by selling the neck and giblets separately. This was a great loss for the family dinner table since extra "treats" were no longer available on "fried chicken night."

I recommend Coleman chickens for any chicken recipe. They're great baked, fried, fricasseed, grilled, poached, steamed...you name it. Coleman Natural products are available at Costco, H.E.B. and other stores in my area, which is South Central Texas. If you'd like to locate Coleman's products, try the handy store locator.

      Thanks for the review. Love this product and have been using it for several months from Costco. Glad to have it confirmed by another person that this is legit.

      I agree, Terry! I dream of the day that chickens like the ones from Coleman will be the norm...the way they used to be so many years ago.

      These chickens are the best quality I have ever had. I have been cooking chicken all different ways for many years, and the quality and taste of these birds is unsurpassed. There is none of that overwhelming gristle and fat/grease that you get with conventionally raised chickens and the meat is so tender and clean. They usually run about $10 a bird and Costco sells them in 2 packs. I will try smoking one tonight for the first time, the kids and I are excited!

      I think its just plain stupid for this company to say their chickens are only vegetarian fed. Chickens are not vegetarian folks! Wake up and get a clue, nothing natural about that at all.

      But these organic Coleman chickens are NOT free range nor probably cage free either. They are probably genetically modified.
