All of our free range chicken are reared to the highest welfare standards with access to large grassy range areas, many of which are planted up with trees offering shade to encourage the chicken to range.
The chickens are looked after by dedicated teams, with fresh bedding and constant access to food and water providing the best welfare standards possible.
Using a conventional breed combined with a low energy feed our suppliers are able to achieve exceptional flavour whilst maintaining an excellent meat yield.
Our Free Range Chickens come from Creedy Carver and Castlemeed Farms.
We also stock Drug Free Chickens which are reared in large and uncroweded purpose-built houses on deep litter of chopped straw and wood shavings. Like most newly born warm blooded animals, chicks are sensitive to cold and infection. So they are gently placed into new litter under heat lamps (brooders) to keep them warm. As they grow they roam and forage throughout the house, eating and drinking as they wish.
Although not considered free range, our drug free chickens have a good and healthy life. This is a more cost effective method for rearing birds, whilst retaining the high animals welfare standards that are expected.
