Omnivore - Pastured Poultry comes back next week for its third celebration

Pastured Poultry week gains more influence in the Atlanta community


More than 40 chefs and restaurants statewide will feature Georgia-grown pastured poultry on their menus next week in honor of Pastured Poultry Week. The event was founded and organized by leading farm animal welfare organization Compassion in World Farming USA (CIWF) and Georgians for Pastured Poultry (GPP), an alliance of concerned citizens, nonprofits, businesses, academics, and farmers that advocates on behalf of the pastured poultry industry in Georgia.

Starting Monday, July 7-13 local restaurants will offer specials in an effort to raise awareness about humane and sustainable practices within the poultry industry. Pasture raised poultry, supporters say, tastes better than the conventional stuff and is better for the environment.

One Eared Stag in Inman Park plans to offer duck and/or chicken from Grassroots Farms in Tattnall County, Ga. Expect similar offerings at Chai Pani Decatur, Chick-a-Biddy, both Bantam + Biddy locations, the General Muir, Gunshow, Wrecking Bar, and more. Visit CIWF's website for details.
