Organic chicken livers - where can I buy these?

I have been looking all over for org. chicken livers, tried all the supermarkets, butchers and no one seems to have them, not even free range. Do you know of any place (perhaps a farm shop online?) that sells these?
Many thanks, I'm losing hope.

Re: Organic chicken livers - where can I buy these?

Oh come now! Everyone knows that Swiss organic chickens don't have giblets. They are bred and raised ready to jump into the vacuum-packer!

(I understand your frustration. I also wonder what Switzerland does with some of my favorite pieces from the cow, which also NEVER end up in the store here.)

13.50 CHF/kg at Biohof-Scheibler you can order online for delivery (if you are near them) or go and pick it up directly at the farm.

FYI - I found this just from a google search, I have never shopped at this place, chicken livers are not my thing, organic or not.

Re: Organic chicken livers - where can I buy these?

Some thread necromancy going on here. Does anybody know what has happened to the chicken livers in Switzerland? I used to find them in COOP or Manor but it seems they are no more. Are they being processed into some kind of post-crisis foie gras substitute and exported?

I don't care if they are organic or not, I just really want some peri-peri chicken livers.

Yes, look in the freezers of migros, they have chicken livers, hearts, and stomachs, and even necks.

Chicken livers

Enter your zip code and you'll find the Migros closest to you which stocks them.

I once asked at one of the Migros meat dept, and was told that the organs, feet, and heads are exported to China and other countries big on consuming these products - organically and conventionally raised.

Re: Organic chicken livers - where can I buy these?

But they aren't organic. Same with other livers I haven't seen organic organs anywhere yet. I asked a private butcher if they had organic blood sausages, and he looked at me funny.

I found them via special order from butchers. Our butcher has stopped wondering why we order only the stuff nobody else wants. We regularly buy fat, bones, organ Meats and the highest fat ground beef he can ground.

Re: Organic chicken livers - where can I buy these?

I'd like the name of your butcher, please. I stopped going into our butcher's store when I saw them display shellfish right next to meat, and when asked if the kitchen has separate areas for processing, they said cross-contamination wasn't a problem. Not for them, it isn't!

How can you tell the difference? If they were fresh when bought and then well grilled/fried etc they are good.
I've seen them only in Coop (the non-frozen ones), and sometimes (rarely) in butcher's shops.
If you want good blood sausages - try Austria. (again, have no idea about being "organic" or not)
Anyway, one of my friends recommended Farmy for ordering bio products, including meats. Perhaps you can also find chicken liver? (didn't check it out myself)

Honestly, it's no comparison. I get the hearts and livers fresh and they're much better. I admit the ones from France are the best, not sure why. They just cook up better. Liver is hard for me to get right.

I like to go to this place on Satuday mornings, but they're out of the way, so we pre-order and buy in bulk.

Try their high-fat ground beef. Tastiest meat in the world.
