What People Say About King Capon Chicken

What’s It Like Being a Sanagan’s Chicken?

"When you buy our King Capon chicken you can rest assured that your bird didn’t live in a cage; had dirt on the floor; was allotted three times the required square footage per bird as mandated by industry standards; lived under a natural light cycle; got as much all-vegetarian fed and water as it wanted; and, based on appearances, lead an uneventful, low-stress life.

Well, there may be a few stressful moments right at the end, but way less than what most chickens experience because King Capon has their own processing plant immediately next door to the barns. That means no unpleasant caged truck rides to the slaughterhouse for these birds.

All of that goes a long way towards tasty chicken. Another major quality difference is that, post-slaughter, King Capon air-chill their poultry. A lot of commercial chicken is water or ice chilled which can increase a bird’s volume by as much as 10%. Water’s not a flavour we’re looking for in our meat."

All In The Family Day

"The people at King Capon Farms have been part of the Sanagan’s family from the get-go supplying us with their outstanding poultry. If you come in and buy a leg or a breast or a regular whole chicken, it’s probably coming from King Capon, which has been owned by the same family since the 70’s. King Capon chicken is free-run, barn raised, vegetable grain fed and air chilled. Their birds also benefit from on-site processing saving them from stressful caged trips on the back of a truck."

How are your chickens raised?

"I get the majority of my conventionally raised birds from Sharon, ON, where King Capon Farms raises a lovely cross-bred bird without the use of antibiotics or hormones. They are fed grains supplemented with vitamins and are air chilled (this means they aren’t tumbled in a nasty ice water bath after the kill. Yummy!"
