Catalpa Farm

Located in the heartland of Indiana, Catalpa Farm is dedicated to preserving Heritage Breeds, as designated by the American Livestock Breed Association. We've selected one of the most endangered chickens, the Delaware, to offer as an alternative to standard meat birds that are typically used on a pasture setting. Also by developing a breeding stock, we hope to encourage other farmers to begin using this bird again to save it from disappearing.

The Delaware breed was developed in the 1940's and is an excellent meat bird. They forage well on a pasture setting. The Delaware takes twice as long as the modern chicken to come to full weight, thus allowing the bird to fully develop physically. This makes the meat much richer than most poultry and is a delicacy when slow roasted. You will be surprised by the depth of flavor, especially the dark meat, the Delaware has that modern poultry lacks. It is also listed as an Ark of Taste cherished Slow Food.
