Raising a healthy active family is important to me. I am always looking for new ways to bring fresh, healthy protein to the table that my kids will not only enjoy, but want to help me cook. Chicken has always been a staple in our home because of its versatility, and cost. My family can switch out any protein source with chicken, and the dish will still come out fantastic. Several years ago I started using only fresh chicken products that are antibiotic free, and when I can afford it I also buy certified organic. Foster Farms organic and simply raised fresh chicken products have allowed me to eat healthier at a lower cost. I think you will love them to which is why I am sharing this post with you today. Plus at the end of this post is a recipe for my delicious BBQ chicken strips made with fresh Foster Farms Chicken.
Family-owned and operated since 1939, Foster Farms is the West Coast’s leading poultry producer. With so many families looking to healthier options, the company came out with the introduction of Foster Farms fresh Organic and Simply Raised antibiotic free lines, there is now something for everyone under the Foster Farms brand.
- Foster Farms Simply Raised fresh chicken products are available American Humane Certified, the products are 100% naturally with only minimal processing, produced with no added sodium, and delivered fresh to supermarkets within 48 hours of processing.
- Foster Farms Organic fresh chicken products are free range, raised on organic land, they are 100% vegetarian fed, American Humane Certified, No antibiotics are given ever, are USDA certified organic, and very minimally processed.
As you may well know, parents are the driving force behind the drive for organic and antibiotic-free chicken. As parents begin to research what is healthy, and how to avoid certain products more and more millennial parents are looking at the organic movement. According to a new independent survey of over 1,800 West Coast Millennial households (conducted by Metrix Lab and sponsored by Foster Farms), millennial parents are driving the demand for antibiotic-free and organic poultry and meat, citing “organic” or “no antibiotics” as the most important factors in choosing fresh chicken. Simply put, parents want to feed their children the best products they can, but they also have to think about what they can afford, and Foster Farms products are affordable. 85 percent of Millennial parents indicated that their criteria for buying meat and poultry has changed over the last several years; 42 percent cited having a child as the primary reason.

Foster Farms fresh chicken products (boneless, skinless breast are also cheaper than leading organic brands. Cost is often a driving force behind what parents buy since so many parents in this day and age have to budget so carefully.
