Game Birds: From Tradition to Table

A Legacy of Excellence

Preferred’s founder, Bala Kironde started out raising game birds and selling them to some of the top chefs of the day, including Mark Miller, Roland Passot, Jeremiah Tower and the late Jean-Louis Palladin. Needless to say we know our game birds!

Although he no longer raises them, Bala makes sure he does business with the farmers that meet his high standards of raising these high quality birds.
