Farmer Focus, a 100% USDA organic and Humane Certified chicken company with a mission to promote and protect generational family farms, announced the launch of their new Organic Ground Chicken. Farmer Focus Organic Ground Chicken maintains moisture and holds flavors perfectly in a pan, grill, or oven, so even the most novice of cooks can create dishes that elevate every day to restaurant quality.

"Our new Organic Ground Chicken builds on the award-winning success of our recent new products," said Kathryn Tuttle, chief commercial officer at Farmer Focus. “As demand for organic poultry products expands, Farmer Focus Organic Ground Chicken offers retailers a premium option to drive incremental growth while offering consumers a culinary experience that will quickly become a weeknight kitchen staple."

To create the Farmer Focus Organic Ground Chicken, Sean McLendon, Farmer Focus vice president of Research and Development and a James Beard nominated chef, started with premium cuts of leg meat ground in a coarse artisanal style. The result is a dark meat blend that delivers a hearty mouthfeel and a distinctive eating experience full of flavor and moisture. With a suggested retail price of $6.99 per pound, this offering is available in Harris Teeter locations, with an anticipated expansion to additional retailers later this spring.

"As a chef, I have seen home cooks struggle to prepare ground chicken well. That challenge inspired me to create a recipe that would be foolproof to prepare, making at-home cooks look like chefs," McLendon said. "Economical and recipe-ready, Farmer Focus' ground chicken elevates classics like chili and meatballs and shines center stage in burgers and tacos."
