        They may be fed organically at Clement's, but when I visited on a warm spring day, the birds were entirely inside a coop. At SLM you could ask if they have outdoor access.

            Organically raised birds have to be able to go outside everyday. I did not see this access at Clement's, and I don't know that they have certification.

          Don't think anything at Sanagan's is "certified organic" other than eggs. They usually deal with small farmers that don't want to bother w/ the expensive process of certification. Their chicken comes from King Capon Farms, I've been happy with the quality.

          Gasparro's chickens are sourced from Mennonite farmers. Again, same thing, not "certified organic", but one of my fav shops for chicken in the city.
