It could get cheaper to buy organic chicken.

Perdue Farms announced that will have the product on the shelves in October at half the price of other organic brands.

It’s called Simply Smart Organics.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the company says the specific prices for the new products have not yet been determined.

The federal government requires that organic chicken must be given non-GMO feed and must be on a strictly 100 percent vegetarian diet.

In addition, they must also be free range.

The paper reports that nearly 40 percent of all fresh chicken sold in Delaware last year was by Perdue while in Maryland it was 30 percent.

For Virginia the figure was around 25 percent.
