FREE RANGE CHICKEN
We stock free range chickens produced by Fosse Meadows in Leicestershire. A fourth generation farm, Fosse Meadows produces free-range and very slow-grown poultry ( two weeks longer than organic standards )
using traditional and compassionate methods, to produce the very best bird using the highest welfare.
The farm rears traditional free-range chicken for the table, using three strains of a French breed and growing them to a minimum of 81 days. By giving the bird some age (two weeks longer than Organic standards) results in darker, more textured meat with real flavour.
The birds are kept in mobile sheds overnight and have free-access to the fields and farmland during the day, free-ranging on clover-rich pastures, free from any pesticides. Being slow-grown in small flocks means that the birds live their lives naturally and really do roam all over the fields, unlike mass production systems.
We also stock high quality barn reared standard chickens from Diaper Poultry in Suffolk.
