Murray Bresky has been up with the chickens for as long as he can remember. As a boy, Murray was constantly in-and-out of his father’s kosher butcher shop in the Catskills. Keeping up with the changing times and need for convenience, Murray’s father began his chicken processing business in the 1950s to offer customers fresh, ready-to-cook chicken. After college, Murray couldn’t imagine doing anything but joining the family business and helping it evolve into to the successful operation it is today.
Raised without the use of antibiotics, growth drugs or hormones, Murray’s Chickens are free to roam and vegetable fed. As a family-owned business with deep roots in the region, Murray and his team focus on producing the finest quality of chicken in the safest environment possible.
The chickens are shipped out within same or next day of processing, and the hands of the loyal team at Murray’s Chickens do all the work. According to Murray, they are like “one, big happy family.” Employing a team of 300 people, Murray has had about 200 of the same employees for the last 10 years, some starting straight out of high school.
“I’ve watched my employees’ families grow. I’ve seen them buy houses, get married, and have children. It’s been very rewarding to offer jobs and contribute sustenance to the community,” said Murray.
Murray’s strengthens the local economy and protects small farmers by allowing them to focus solely on the exceptional quality and taste of their Murray’s Chickens. Most meats travel a great distance to reach the dinner table. In comparison, Murray’s transport distance is always under 300 miles—consistently ensuring its signature product.
City residents have greater access to Murray’s Chickens. Murray’s is sold at all big supermarkets in Manhattan, including Fairway and Key Food. For locals, Murray’s can be found at Peter’s Market in Napanoch and Eureka Market & Café in Grahamsville.
