Growing Organically

A pioneer in the world of natural foods, Bell & Evans has been raising the Excellent Chicken for generations, dating back to the 1890s. Family owned and operated, Bell & Evans chickens are raised and processed in the heart of the Pennsylvania Dutch Country, in a modern facility, using only the latest air-chilled technology.  We believe in hard work and respect for the land, our farm families, our customers and especially our chickens.

It starts by making sure our chickens are... 
 

Raised Humanely

Biologists have long understood that overcrowding of people or animals leads to stress, an assortment of health disorders, and aggressive behavior.  We all need our space, and chickens are no exception.  The Bell & Evans’ Animal Welfare Committee ensures our chickens are raised and handled with minimal stress and never de-beaked.

At our growers' farms you'll find calm, non-aggressive chickens with plenty of room to move about as they choose - getting all the exercise they need to grow strong and healthy.  Our pampered poultry are free to sunbathe in the warm grass or take shelter in their clean, state-of-the-art chicken house when the weather is bad.

Bell & Evans voluntarily participates in annual ‘animal welfare’ and ‘good manufacturing’ audits to insure each of our animals receives the most humane animal treatment.
