Each Chicken Share is 4 chickens: you’ll get one whole and trussed, one flattened and marinated and two that are butchered into breasts, legs and wings. Each Share also comes with chicken stock! Our chickens are local, raised in open barns with constant access to the outdoors, and are always antibiotic and hormone free.
What's With Herbs?
The food from my childhood has had a significant influence on the food we serve at Richmond Station. We still stick to the classics but have also found new favourites: dill flowers on trout, mexican marigold in a butter sauce on zucchini, bronze fennel on fresh cheese.
Why Does West Side Beef Have a Family Pack?

Why Do Chefs Spend So Much Time Talking to Farmers?
Food made with better ingredients will taste better. Chefs that spend their food dollars buying directly from people that grow food will buy better ingredients. And in the process, the best chefs are learning a thing or two about cooking from farmers as well.
Why Does West Side Beef Sell Chicken?
The request we got more than any other from our faithful customers was: can you help me get great chickens? Again, the real answer here was yes. I’ve known John and Carol at Fenwood Farms for close to ten years and have visited their farm so many times. My family has been eating their chickens for just as long as I’ve known them. But at WSB, I always fought against the idea that we should get people chickens. Truly, I thought this was something our customers, all ambitious and talented home cooks, could handle without intervention. I mean, you can just go and get a whole chicken and butcher it yourself, right?
