Have you tried the tasty free range chickens from Fosse Meadows Farm? If not come in and see us.
We are supplied direct from Fosse Meadows Farm, situated near Lutterworth in Leicestershire a stones throw from the nature park to which the farm owes its name. It is a fourth generation farm producing free-range chickens in the traditional way – producing the best birds for customers but using the highest welfare standards.
Three things that make Fosse Meadows Free Range Chickens very tasty:
- They are kept in small flocks outside in the meadows. This promotes natural behaviours in the birds and also allows them to get little more individual attention. These birds don’t want to stay in-doors! With free access to the out side world the chickens have all the space they need with grassy pasture to graze, insects in the bottom of the hedge to scratch out or small field shelters to rest in.
- These chickens are slow grown to maturity, developing naturally with plenty of exercise which is great for flavour and texture in the meat for your table. For comparison this process is nearly double the lifespan of a basic supermarket chicken.
- Diet is very important in producing very tasty free range chickens. These birds eat cereals free from any additives and growth hormones. Their feed ration has maize added which gives them a lovely golden appearance and adds a little extra fat.
“This true slow growing is where we gain on flavour over other producers, the food costs are higher per bird but we feel that for the quality of bird you get its worth the extra time.”
Their free range chickens have been featured in numerous magazines and newspaper articles. Attracting a lot of positive reviews and recommendations
“Succulent with great depth of flavour and long aftertaste. Legs have good meaty flavour like guinea fowl.” Marks: 9/10
