When you order a Ricciuti’s salad, sandwich, entrée, or pizza that features chicken, you can be certain that you’re being served high quality, certified organic, free-range chicken from family-owned Eberly Farms in central Pennsylvania. We chose Eberly Farms as part of our commitment to bring the best local, sustainably-farmed products available to our customers.
Eberly Farms opened in 1947 and is one of the first US companies to be certified organic by the United States Department of Agriculture’s inspection guidelines. It’s a family-owned business that is currently operated by the fourth generation of Eberlys. The enterprise consists of a group of sustainable Mennonite and Amish farms located in Pennsylvania Dutch country. The Eberly philosophy is “Poultry as Nature Intended.” The family adheres to this belief by raising their poultry in specialty barns that allow the birds to roam in a natural environment with fresh air, sunshine, and exercise. They also feed their poultry a certified non-GMO, all-vegetable diet of organic, North American grains containing zero animal by-products.
We’re proud to source our poultry from a provider who shares our commitment to healthy, local, organic, responsibly and sustainably-farmed foods. Hats off to Eberly Farms!
