Producing our Free Range Chicken:
Day old chicks are reared indoors for 3-4 weeks depending on weather conditions, after this they are introduced gradually to outdoor life and spend the next months free range on grass pasture. They are housed in small groups .
They are fed a custom milled feed and are aged at least 10 weeks old before they reach your plate, this produces larger, better tasting chickens than the average supermarket birds.
All chickens are slaughtered and butchered on farm, reducing food miles.
