Fresh Chickens, or “Little Gerrys” on Sale at North Fork Table and Browder’s Birds

That’s right, the North Fork’s Browder’s Birds have begun a locavore poultry project that is sure to have you singing, “It’s the circle of life,” in no time. Mattituck’s organic free-range chicken farmers are currently feeding two of their flocks scraps from the highly touted North Fork Table and Inn and the chickens will ultimately appear on the restaurant’s menu on the weekend of July 25.

Love and eggs are best when fresh — or so goes the old Russian proverb. On the issue of the eggs, at least, we here at Edible East End have to agree.
