COOKS VENTURE We are a group of farmers, cooks, and food professionals who could not find what we wanted in the food system, so we are building it ourselves from the ground up: animal-by-animal, plant-by-plant, meal-by-meal. A truly transparent, regenerative supply chain for the future. That is our Venture, we are the Cooks.

Our very special chickens come from an ancestry of breeding heirloom and heritage birds that have better health than conventional livestock. Because of their unrestricted pasture access and pedigree, they grow to be stronger and more flavorful than other modern breeds. The difference is astounding.

JIDORI is a Japanese term that translates to “chicken of the earth”. These birds are raised locally, picked up by Rocker Bros. daily, and can be delivered to our customers within 24 hours of slaughter. This is the freshest chicken available in CA. We sell most of our Jidori 100% natural, humanely raised chickens with head on and feet on, as is traditional, and usually as our chefs request.

MARY’S brand free range Chicken and Turkey from Pitman Farms in Northern California is 100% naturally raised, and unlike any other chicken, is 100% air-chilled. The air-chill process means that the Mary’s chicken never enters the water for cooling during processing, as most birds do. The air-chill process helps ensure purity and reduce water retention. Pittman Farms is known for their exceptional care in raising and processing chicken – we are happy to carry their fine line of poultry.

PASTUREBIRD Pastured Poultry = chickens that live outside in a natural habitat (on grass, in the fresh air and sunshine with plenty of space to roam and forage). By rotating the chickens to fresh pasture every single day, Pasturebird chicken is not only healthy and delicious but also goes beyond sustainability to rebuild healthy, regenerative soils and grasslands. The differences between our chicken and conventionally raised chicken are numerous. We use the term “Always Outside” to note the fact that our chickens don’t just have ambiguous “access to pasture”, but actually live outside on pasture 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
