Genuinely free range and organically reared with the highest standards of animal welfare
Organic chickens are genuinely free range and reared with the highest standards of animal welfare to produce chicken which is full of flavour and of the finest quality.
They are reared in small groups of 450 birds to Soil Association organic standards, and are encouraged to forage widely and wildly around the fields! They love grazing and pecking at grass, especially in the morning and evening, which gives them a natural coloured skin. At night they are shut in, away from the fox and other hungry predators, their mobile houses have plenty of space and comfortable straw bedding. They are reared on a diet of organic feed, chopped straw and anything available within their habitat.
Organic chickens live for a minimum of ten weeks which is up to twice as long as conventional and intensive chicken. They are reared under very high standards of welfare which ban routine in feed medication and antibiotics, and forbid practices such as beak and wing clipping.
Our organic chickens are truly tasty and highly recommended. They have been highlighted by Rose Prince in the Weekend Telegraph as having "Exceptionally high Soil Association standards" and are also featured by Rick Stein.
In 2009 we achieved Highly Commended for our chickens at the Soil Association Organic Food Awards.
