Common Wealth Poultry Co. provides New England with fresh, air-chilled, all-natural, growth hormone free poultry. We produce quality, not quantity. Our unique processing system ensures that the poultry we produce is pure, no added water, salt or additives during production.

Unlike most poultry processors in America we utilize Air-Chilling to quickly reduce the temperature of the bird after processing. Water-Chilling is the most common practice, where processed birds are piled into large vats of ice water. While the birds sit in these water baths, they become water logged. Because the birds comingle in the water for hours, whatever pathogens one bird carries can be passed to other birds. To reduce this risk, processors fill those water vats with chlorine or, now becoming just as popular, T.S.P. (trisodium phosphate), which you can find at your local hardware store. It’s really good for cleaning your bathroom or getting stains out of your concrete floor. And guess what? Whatever chemicals that are used in that water become absorbed into the meat. Think about that next time you’re at the grocery store. Cheap meat comes with a price.

Air-Chilling has allowed us to produce pure, honest meat. We believe that our customers deserve to eat meat free from chemical water. We don’t serve that to our families and we wouldn’t expect your family to eat it either.

We are Maine’s ONLY USDA inspected poultry processor.
