Our chickens are locally reared in natural conditions and to the highest welfare standards, in line with the highest level of European Food Safety and totally Farm Assured, meeting all the British Farm Standards in line with the Red Tractor logo. All chickens are from RSPCA approved farms whos standards are based on the Five Freedoms. Freedom from hunger and thirst, freedom from discomfort, freedom from pain, injury or disease, freedom to express normal behaviour, freedom from fear and distress.

The chickens are fed on a balanced diet formulated from locally sourced corn, soyabean and other natural ingredients, free of antibiotics and animal by-products. The rearing cycle of our chickens is monitored by the RSPCA freedom foods to ensure the highest welfare friendly standards, resulting in a healthier, stress free life for our chickens and a more tasty and succulent chicken for our customers.

Free Range Eggs

Our free range eggs are locally produced on a farm where hens are totally free to roam over the pasture during daylight hours. Inside the hen houses there is a large litter area where the birds can scratch and dust bathe. The nest boxes have been specially developed to give the birds the quiet and security they need to lay their eggs, as well as ensuring the eggs are clean and can be quickly collected.

The hens are fed on a mixture of wheat, barley and soya. The feed also includes all the vitamins and minerals needed to ensure they are kept healthy during their egg laying life. All the free range hens are vaccinated against salmonella in line with the Lion Code of quality assurance.

The eggs that we sell hold a quality assurance of being hand selected for quality, packaged and then delivered within two to three days of being laid to ensure that you can enjoy that farm fresh taste.
