The meat is from anti-biotic free chickens, raised on family farms in a free range environment and each pie is filled with a delicious combination of white and dark meat, offering all there is to love about a whole chicken. The pie is made using a secret recipe of tasty chicken and a flaky hand-made crust. Although there is a generous amount gravy baked into each pie, every order comes with an additional six-ounce packet of gravy for those who like a little extra sauce.

“Using a great product is important to Harry & David, said Gail Simon VP Brand Marketing and Communications at Harry & David. “Our customers expect it and Smart Chicken’s devotion to the humane treatment of animals and creation of a superior and delicious product made it a natural partnership.”

In a culture where terms like “all natural” and “free range” are casually tossed about, Smart Chicken supersedes all expectations about poultry companies by being the first in the U.S. to use 100% air-chill technology and Controlled Atmosphere Stunning (CAS), and is the only brand that is both Certified Organic and Certified Humane. Air-chill technology eliminates the use of added water and cross-contamination, thus creating a superior product. Additionally, Smart Chicken ensures that every bird is handled with care and is allowed to roam freely in a pleasant environment. At the farms they live in free range houses with access to a natural outdoor environment and have ample clean water and eat a vegetarian diet, free of chemical agents. When the birds arrive at processing they are gently put into a CAS chamber, which lulls the birds to a gentle slumber with a mixture of carbon dioxide and oxygen before they are sent to processing. Eliminating fear from the process results in a stress-free bird and a superior product that tastes like chicken should—fresh from the farm.

These special Chicken Pies are available at Smart Chicken also features a wide array of products that can be purchased at For further information on Smart Chicken or Harry & David please visit the websites.
