Oven Ready Chicken
Our Light Sussex chicken is a British Heritage Breed and is slow growing. They are what “real” chickens were like 50 years ago, before factories started modifying them.
We produce about 50 chickens per week and our aim is to produce the best chicken available not the cheapest.
Field Reared - (not fake “free range”) These birds live in a large open grassland field. They have houses to go in if they want, but we don’t make them. This enormous level of freedom means a healthy happy chicken.
Slow Growing - our chickens are 120-150 days old (not 36-40 days like supermarket chickens) which means you get a properly developed bird with good bone structure and flavoursome meat.
Top Quality Feed - our chickens are fed on top quality feed from the local feed mill and they forage the field for all that is available there. It is more expensive to produce chickens this way but it means the meat you will eat has been grown from good quality nutrients.
Dry Plucked (not boiled or bleached) we individually dry-pluck our chickens. It takes longer but it means you get a better bird which has not been through a polluting industrial process. The skin will crisp up better, it will taste better and it will be better for you.
Game Hung - we game hang our chickens for a few days. This improves the flavour and texture of the meat.
