From the heart of the Pennsylvania Dutch County, Grand Western is the proud distributor of Bell & Evans Poultry. Naturally raised, humanely, in an environment without stress, lots of fresh air, natural light and clean fresh water, Bell & Evans chickens are flavorful, tender and meaty. Bell & Evans chickens are raised on 100% natural, all-vegetable diet fortified with vitamins and minerals without antibiotics, no animal by-products, no growth hormones, no preservatives and no artificial flavorings. A naturally, well-fed chicken means a healthier and tastier meal for your guests.

Bell & Evans is the first company to raise 100% of their flocks without antibiotics—from the egg throughout the chicken’s entire lifespan. In fact, they haven’t had to treat a flock with antibiotics for nearly a decade.

It all starts with what they do and don’t feed their chickens. From the moment they hatch in their Organic, Animal Welfare Focused Hatchery, Bell & Evans chicks enjoy an organic diet of corn, extruded and expeller-pressed soy beans, vitamins and mineral.

In addition to the feed, they’ve also pioneered a clean and stress-free environment. This keeps chickens’ immune systems strong and eliminates the need for antibiotics.

With conventional chilling systems, chickens absorb up to 12% of their body weight in added chlorinated water. This water “weeps” out of the meat and is trapped in the “diaper” you find in most fresh chicken packaging.

Bell & Evans 100% Air Chilled method eliminates the need for chlorinated ice water, so chickens’ natural juices never get diluted or replaced. But that’s not the only benefit:

  • Better flavor
  • More tender meat
  • No added water or chlorine
  • Reduced human handling
  • Less environmental waste
