Grass (pasture) Fed Chicken?

The thread on grass-fed beef got me started on this variant. A friend of ours, who lives nowhere near Center City,has raised pasture-fed chickens on his farm this year. He mentioned that he was forced to charge $3.86./pound for those chickens, due to the cost of feeding them. Wow, is that steep, but it made me so curious to have a taste experience, even at that price.

I no longer buy supermarket chickens, not willing to settle for anything less than a fresh Kosher chicken, or name brand from PA Dutch area.

What sources of chicken can you suggest that have the taste and tenderness to justify a steep price tag? At this point, I feel it is worth the expense.
