Nick & Jacob at Fosse Meadows run a high welfare, slow grown free-range chicken farm in Leicestershire.
The key difference with our chicken is the age that we grow it to – 81 days minimum. This is 4 weeks longer than normal free range and a couple of weeks longer than organic. This produces a super tasty chicken – like chicken used to taste with flavour and texture to the meat. Come Christmas, geese, cockerels and turkeys are on the scene, again all grown slowly for more flavour.
Our Chickens have been recommended by James Martin on Saturday Kitchen, and by Diana Henry – local resident to Ally Pally farmers’ Market and author of ‘A Bird in the Hand: Chicken Recipes for Every Day and Every Mood’.
