Not exactly equivilant but I have been extremely happy with D'Artagnan's Green Circle Chicken.
ordered the 6 chicken special for $120 but the shipping was over $50 so I deleted the order. Each time those stupid shipping costs keep me from completing the order.
Costco.com $110 including shipping

Anything to report, Alan?
Lee. Do you have a good source of lamb in the Seattle area you would recommend?

There were a couple of good local sources at the farmer's markets. We haven't lived in Seattle for more than 5 years now, so I don't recall the names at this point.

For those experienced with Pasturebird -- Do you know if they ship frozen? There doesn't seem to be anything on the website or in the emails about this. My shipment arrived with empty bags that seem to have once contained dry ice and some cold but not frozen birds. Unclear whether I can freeze them or should cook all of them asap. I've emailed them but I sense they are pretty swamped right now.

Oy. I guess that means they all the way defrosted in shipping. Thank you for the info, though.

I have also bought them fresh not frozen at a local butcher in Santa Ana. I recall receiving them frozen from Pasturebird but I sent them an email to be sure my memory is correct. Will check back.

Mine also showed up mostly thawed. I'm not very thrilled with having to re-freeze the chicken, but I don't have much of a choice with the 10 that I ordered. That being said, we roasted one of them yesterday and it was fantastic. Hopefully the re-freeze doesn't hurt the rest of them too much.

Yeah, we had one last night and it was ridiculously good. I think they might cook slightly faster than the chickens I'm used to - we're going to cook another one tonight, freeze one, and hand another off to a friend. Pasturebird got back to me this morning and said that they were fine to refreeze.

Mine just arrived. Not frozen but at least cold. Oh well. I'm going to cook one and freeze the other 3.

I cooked my first Pasture Bird on the BGE tonight. Super-duper-tasty. About as good as any chicken I’ve cooked.

The ‘09 Faiveley Chambolle ‘La Combe d’Orveau’ opened alongside is phenomenal and drinking very well in its youth. Intense, layered fruit yet surprisingly lithe for the vintage.

The best lamb I have had that seems to be commercially available is from Border Springs in Virginia. Not sure where they sell but I can get it locally from Inland. https://www.borderspringsfarm.com/about ... ings-farm/

Trying Martin's recipe with Sarah's recommended Elysian Fields lamb which was beautiful when it arrived; I had never mail ordered lamb and thought it was pretty cool that they would wrap the ends of the bones to prevent puncturing the bag, as well as pre-tie them with butchers twine.

Last night I cooked one of the unfrozen-on-arrival-but-then-refrozen Pasturebird chickens. Still delicious. But on reflection my local farm’s pasture chickens are just as good. So I’ll probably stick with them.
