Producing our Organic 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 2 months free range on organic pasture. They are housed at night in small groups.
They are fed a certified organic 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 locally and butchered on farm.

See how our organic meat is packaged
- Rub the skin of the chicken with Seasoned Yorkshire rapeseed oil for a delicious crispy skin.
- The giblets are in a small bag inside the chicken, remember to remove before cooking. They can be used to make a traditional gravy.
- Get multiple meals from one chicken, use the leftovers for a curry or sandwiches and make a stock or soup from the bones.
Did you know?
Our organic chickens were used as part of a paleo diet study by York University and their protein and fat content were much closer to a traditional grass fed chicken diet than conventional mass produced birds.
Our chickens are produced on our farm at Swillington or by our trusted network of organic farmers.
