Barn Reared Chicken


Our barn reared whole chickens are a grade below the free range bird meaning they have also been able to roam free. These birds are oven ready and not only are they meaty but they have tremendous flavour.

Butchers Tip

Before cooking the chicken, rub the breast and legs thickly with softened Butter and then sprinkle with a little sea salt just before roasting. The Butter and salt will help create a crisp skin, golden skin and will taste divine
