About Our Poussin

D’Artagnan is dedicated to finding farmers that share our vision of a more humane and sustainable way of rearing livestock. We look at scale and sustainability; working only with those farms that respect nature and focus on the best animal welfare practices.

We procure our poussin from two small poultry farms, one in New Jersey, the other in South Carolina. Both farms follow strict protocols and raise the birds humanely in open barns with plenty of space, on an all-vegetarian diet of corn, soy and clean, fresh water without any antibiotics or hormones.

We hope you enjoy our poussin and tell us how you cook it in the comments.
