I know what you are asking and I do not know, but I am giggling at the idea of a company making a meat that comes from a slaughtered animal. Sorry, it just makes me giggle.

I think Perdue does.  There's also a company called Harvestland.  They're really good.

Do you have an Amish community near you?  When I lived in Michigan, I used to get eggs and "naturally raised" chickens from the local Amish.

If you want truly homone and antibiotic free, go organic.

That being said, I would never ever in a million years buy a commercially produced chicken. The breed they use is awful and disgusting and it has relatively no flavor. I would find a farmer that I trust, and buy his/her products. This is what DH and I do. We buy several heritage breed, organic, pastured chickens from a woman a few towns over. A lot more flavor and much better for you.

It isn't too bad, really. I haven't been to Whole Foods in a while, we moved to a rural area. We do have a Kroger though. What we do is we look at the dates on the meat, usually a day or two before that date the store will mark them down. We pick them up them and put it in our deep freezer. It's still good and significantly cheaper. Also, I've ordered from Polyface Farms before, but I don't know where you're at geographically. Their prices aren't too bad. Whole Foods may mark the meats down as well, not certain, but they may.

Also, check your local farmers markets! That's a biggie.

Hormone-free is expected as no chicken is allowed to be given hormones.
