Our meals are available in stores all over the country. Go to our store locator and enter your zip code to find a store near you that carries Blakes. In some stores we are located in the Natural or Organic freezer sections of the store. If your local store doesn't currently carry our meals, be sure to make a request with the frozen manager.
Yes! Our facility is certified organic annually by the New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, Markets and Food.
We have been making our pot pies without a bottom crust for over forty years and the reason is simple: wed rather fill our meals with more chicken, veggies and gravy. We think the single crust creates the perfect balance of crust and filling, but it also makes our pot pies significantly lower in fat, sodium and carbohydrates than most other pot pies.
Yes, we only use white meat chicken in all our meals.
Our Homestyle Mac & Cheese, Farmhouse Mac & Cheese, and Three Cheese Ravioli are all vegetarian items.
Our line of organic meals contain at least 70% organic ingredients and our White Meat Chicken Pie is 100% organic.
It means that actual people prepare each meal in small batches. This ensures that we can control the quality of every aspect of our meals. Specifically, it means cooking the chicken ourselves in small batches, mashing real, whole potatoes (never potato flakes or instant potatoes), and using the actual stock from our chicken-cooking process to make our signature gravy. Made from scratch at Blakes means the same thing it means at your home.
No, our cheese is aged using vegetable/microbial rennet. It is also rBGH-free.
Yes! Our Shepherds Pie, Gluten-Free Chicken Pot Pie, and Hearty Beef Stew are gluten free. We test these meals for the presence of gluten on a regular basis to ensure there is no cross-contact.
Most of our meals can be cooked in either a microwave oven or conventional oven. We definitely recommend using a conventional oven for our pot pies, as it ensures the crust will cook as it was intended.
All of all natural and organic meals use ground beef that is free of antibiotics, hormones and animal by-products.
We have several dairy-free meals. All of our chicken and turkey pot pies (excluding our Organic Gluten-Free Chicken Pot Pie) are dairy free, as well as our Macaroni & Beef and Hearty Beef Stew.
We do not raise or sell turkeys any longer.
