When I walked into the Iacono Farm store, the phone was ringing off the hook. It was a day in advance of a big holiday weekend and apparently everyone on the East End of Long Island was bound and determined to serve Iacono Chicken (106 Long Lane, Easthampton NY Tel: 631 324 1107). That was my goal too and the reason that I had arrived moments after the place opened at one o’clock in the afternoon. I was glad I did because as I stood there waiting for Anthony Iacono to cut up my birds, it wasn’t very long before his mother, Mrs. Iacono, started telling prospective customers that they’d have to wait till Sunday or Monday for a chicken. And what is so special about an Iacono chicken?
