The Best Sources For Corn and Soy Free Chicken

Updated: Jul 2, 2023

Corn & Soy Free Chicken

Did you know that most "pasture raised" chicken is fed corn and soy? Many people with chronic illness or inflammation react to chicken because of this, but may not understand why.

For a while, I cut out both pork and chicken out of my diet, thinking they were inflammatory. I've since learned that when animals are fed as nature intended, they make for healthy, nourishing foods. When chicken is not fed corn and soy, their fat profile dramatically changes, making them a much better source of Omega 3 fatty acids.

Non ruminant animals such as chickens have a monogastric digestive system, meaning they have a single-compartmented stomach. Because of this, they do not have the capability to eliminate excess polyunsaturated fats (PUFAS) like cows and other ruminants can. So when they are fed an ancestrally inappropriate diet, these PUFAS accumulate in their fat, passing that on to the human eating it. This is why many people, especially those that are sensitive or chronically ill, feel better eating chicken that is corn and soy free.

Because it's so difficult to find sources for corn and soy free chicken, I've compiled a list of farms I've found that offer it. These farms are all located in the USA (and ship their products). It's always best to support local farms, but sometimes that isn't an option. Hopefully this list will help you in your search!

NorthStar Bison is a regenerative farm located in Wisconsin. They are very committed to raising their animals as nature intended with ancestrally appropriate diets—which is more rare than you might think. Everything I have eaten from NorthStar tastes amazing (and makes me feel great, too).

They offer:

  • Corn & soy free chicken

  • Corn & soy free rabbit

  • Corn & soy free pork (limited stock)

Apsey Farms

Apsey farms is a regenerative farm located in Michigan that's has a great selection of nutrient-dense meats. Personally, I haven't tried their meats yet, but I am looking forward to it!

They offer:

  • Corn & soy free chicken

  • Corn & soy free pork

White Oak is a regenerative farm located in Bluffton, Georgia. Currently, they have a smaller selection of corn & soy free chicken (and duck). They may be discontinuing their corn/soy free chicken, so make sure to check before ordering.

Personally, I do really well with eating their chicken—no reactions whatsoever—and it's delicious. One of my top favorites is their corn/soy free chicken skins...yum!

Millers Bio Farm

Millers Bio Farm is an amish farm located in Pennsylvania. All of their meats are pasture-raised, and 100% soy free. Personally, I love their corn & soy free duck eggs. They are so creamy and delicious!

They offer:

  • Corn & soy free chicken

  • Corn & soy free turkey

  • Corn & soy free duck eggs

  • Corn & soy free chicken eggs

  • Soy free pork

Heritage Hills

Heritage Hills is a regenerative farm located in Alabama. I personally have had their corn/soy free pork and feel great eating it.

They offer:

  • Corn & soy free chicken

  • Corn & soy free pork

  • Corn & soy free turkey (stock limited)

Cost of Corn & Soy Free Chicken

Due to how expensive it is to raise corn/soy free chicken, the prices will be higher than conventional chicken. Personally, I consider it an investment in my health (food is medicine). But it's important to note that if you feel good eating conventional meat, and can't afford pasture raised, then that's great. Health always comes first, and meat from the grocery store is SO much better than processed foods.

But for many, especially those that are seriously ill like I was, it makes a huge difference in healing to source meat that is regeneratively raised. You can always experiment to see if it makes a difference for you!
