4 Drumsticks per pack
Why pick chicken drumsticks over chicken breast? The reason might surprise you! Drumsticks consist of dark meat and the rich dark color is due to the presence of myoglobin, an oxygen-carrying protein. Chickens rely on their legs and thighs to move around, requiring increased myoglobin to deliver oxygen to these muscles. As a result, the leg and thigh meat possess a darker hue compared to the breast.
Dark meat has numerous health benefits and offers quantities of nutrients that white meat can’t match. When compared to white meat, dark meat has much higher levels of iron and zinc, which boost the immune system. Along with higher quantities of B vitamins that help regulate the body’s metabolism. The fat content for dark meat is slightly higher, which means the meat is tender, juicer, and has a richness of flavor during cooking that’s unbeatable.
Here are some delicious drumstick recipes we suggest trying: Filipino Chicken Adobo, Colombian Chicken and Potato Stew, Air Fryer Chicken Drumsticks, Slow Cooker Spicy Coconut Chicken Drumsticks, Lemon Garlic Baked Chicken Drumsticks, One Pan Baked Chicken Legs and Potatoes
At Over the Moon Farm and Flowers, we are 100% committed to animal welfare and sustainable farming practices, and this is evident in every bite as you savor the juicy and succulent meat that comes from our happy, healthy chickens. Our birds spend their entire lives outside (except for their brooding period, where they need to be under heat lamps), foraging for bugs, munching on grass, taking dust baths, and basking in the sun. They are supplemented with a fresh ground grain ration, grown and ground right here on the family farm.
Chickens are processed at a USDA-inspected poultry facility. Check out the work of our poultry processor here -- https://www.regenagalliance.org/
