Generously sized free-range whole chicken that is plump and succulent. Reared with care by farmers who share our values, delivering the highest animal welfare standards. They really have to be tasted to appreciate the exceptional quality. Perfect for roasting whole as a Sunday lunch, with plenty for leftovers.

Truly free to roam outside and make use of their natural instincts, these birds are able to peck at the grass, find and eat insects, dust bathe and soak up the sunshine. The birds live in mobile huts in small flock sizes, are hand-fed and bedded up daily with fresh straw.

The birds are fed on fresh herbs, that are put in custom made miniature hay racks in the bird’s fields where they are free to peck away at them at their will. All the herbs are either trimmings or herbs that have simply gone past their best and would otherwise end up on a compost heap. The herbs are a mixture including basil, chives, dill, coriander and various salads to name just a few.

Adapting their diet in such a way it enhances the natural flavour of the meat giving it an extra dimension. The meat also remains wonderfully moist when cooked.
