Zaycon Foods Chicken - Review

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Zaycon Foods is a farm to truck to customer company. It may sound strange to consider purchasing your family's food from the back of a truck, but by cutting out the middleman (grocery stores) you not only save money, your food will be fresher by weeks (see the video of their product journey below).
Zaycon Foods was coming to my area and contacted me to ask if I would like to review their chicken. We eat a lot of chicken, so I was anxious to try it. I met Everal and Kyle from Zaycon Foods in the parking lot of a local church. Their big smiles and friendly attitudes were much better than what I've seen at our local grocery store.
Zaycon Foods chicken comes in bulk in a forty pound box. Their chicken is never frozen, but very very cold. They will even load it into your car for you! The chicken comes sealed in plastic but they take the extra step of lining your car trunk to ensure your car stays clean.
I also learned Zaycon Foods sells more than chicken. You can also order turkey, pork, beef, fish, bacon, sausage, ribs, ham, and more. They even offer fresh fruits and raw honey. It's so easy to place an order online for an upcoming event near you, then just drive through and pick it up!
Forty pounds of chicken is a lot of chicken! When I opened my Zaycon Foods box at home, I was shocked at how many huge pieces of chicken there were. I filled four of my largest bowls with the chicken as I cut them into smaller pieces, so I could package them according to my family's needs. I encourage you to be prepared with freezer bags before you pick up your order!
By the time I got my chicken trimmed, quartered, and packaged, my hands were quite cold. But my freezer was filled from top to bottom with chicken! Our first meal made with the Zaycon Foods chicken was spicy chicken fajitas. (Click here to see my Bruschetta Chicken Spaghetti recipe made with Zaycon Foods chicken).
The quality of this chicken is fantastic! There is an obvious difference in freshness compared to the chicken I buy at my local grocery store. I highly recommend Zaycon Foods. I won't be needing more chicken any time soon, but I can't wait to try their other meats.

    1. I've looked over their site and this is the only information I can find that relates to your question - "We bring products direct from the farm / processor (or as nearly as direct as possible). The products are as fresh as if you had your own farm, but without all the chores." They do have a contact form where you might get a more direct answer - https://www.zayconfoods.com/contact-us

  2. I was wondering if you knew where the chickens were purchased from. Are they free range, organic, or from corporate farms?
