Our birds enjoy a relaxed and natural upbringing with acres and acres of luscious Devon pastures free of any pesticides to roam across and forage. A wholesome diet of insects and grubs hiding in the ground and meadow grasses and herbs are supplemented by GM free organic corn to ensure that the birds are kept healthy, especially during the colder months. They are kept in small flocks of no more than 1,000 chickens. To put this in perspective, intensively-reared meat birds are commonly housed in groups of up to 30,000 in a shed!
We use a slow growing breed that we kill here on the farm at around 71 days. On farm slaughter give us total control and traceability and it is also proven that for the animal it is the least stressful and humane way of slaughter.
