Organic Chickens and Christmas Cockerels

Our chickens and cockerels are reared to organic standards. They are brooded in small huts and once off heat, move from the brooding area, in their mobile huts to allow them access to our clover-rich organic pastures.

The birds are reared slowly, allowing flavour to develop. They are fed a cereal-based, Soil Association approved ration and supplement this from the pasture around them.

Our cockerels and chickens are all slaughtered individually on the farm, so reducing stress. We dry pluck the cockerels and finish plucking by hand. They are hung to improve in flavour and tenderness, before we dress them.

Our organic chickens weigh from 4lbs to 6lbs.

Oven-ready organic Christmas cockerels range from 6lbs to 12lbs in weight.

For Christmas prices please see the Christmas page.

Chickens grown to order

We buy day old chicks from different breeds to ensure a range of weights.  They are reared organically, slaughtered on-farm and hung prior to dressing.
