Consider this sampler your crash course in superior chicken. While Cornish Cross is technically the same breed you’ll find on plastic-wrapped foam trays at the grocery store, Lonkong is a heritage bird with richly developed dark meat that clearly stands apart—and both put the typical supermarket poultry to shame. Reared on wheat grass and organic barley, the Gunsell’s flock is free to roam the land from the age of three weeks on. All that running, hunting, and pecking pays huge dividends in the meat, which is richly flavored, densely grained, and a far cry from the insipid wet cardboard flesh of factory fowl.
