Chicken large

About

A whole fresh organic chicken for roasting or poaching. Most chickens are sold without giblets these days, but we include them so you can make the absolute best stock for gravy. Roast dinner heaven!

Our chickens are truly free range and organic, spending their time grazing outdoors, resulting in tender meat that’s full of natural flavour. Serves 4-5.

Delivered in insulated packaging to keep cool on your doorstep. Minimum meat order £15 to cover the cost of the packaging.
