Chicken has become the cheap staple amongst meats because the birds will tolerate intensive living conditions. The meat they give can be tasteless and often has no texture. The free range birds we sell have time to scratch about in the field, whilst growing up strong and giving meat that has real flavour and texture. Free range birds use far more feed than their intensively raised counterparts and take a lot longer to mature. This is why free range chicken is so much more expensive. We believe that it is worth this price for the quality of life for the birds, and the quality of the meat they give.
