Pasture Raised Free Range Chicken
Our chicken lives out on grass from 3 weeks old. They are raised in small numbers in secure portable runs which we move every day. The chickens get a fresh salad bar every day supplementing their feed with natural minerals and keeping their living conditions clean and fresh. Our chickens mature slowly and naturally, why not try it and taste the difference.

Why pay the extra for Pasture raised chicken when you can buy a bird for less than £5 in a supermarket?
The TV Chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall of River Cottage heads up a campaign to get all chickens raised in pastures not in sheds. He got some eminent nutritional scientists to test a range of chicken from the supermarket. They were barn raised (intensive systems, inhumane and un natural conditions) , corn fed and Free range. The results are shown here:
As you can see, there is a significant difference in the quality of the product in terms of your health, our pasture raised birds are better then most free range as they live on the pasture from 3 weeks and get fresh grass every day, making them lower in fat and higher in Omega 3 oils.
Naked Neck Chickens
Like our other chickens our Naked Necks are pasture raised in portable runs so they get fresh grass every day. To most people the naked neck looks like a small turkey, having no feathers around its head and neck. It is a slower maturing bird and is bred to be leaner than standard chicken. You will notice far less fat in your roasting tray with a Naked Neck. A beautiful flavour is achieved.

Free Range Geese
All our geese are free range and sold fresh around Christmas time. The geese we rear are selected breeds sourced from small specialist hatcheries. They are allowed to grow to full maturity, at around about six months old, producing meat with that very special old fashioned flavour and texture.
We receive our day old Goslings from specialist hatcheries in May. They are kept in our barn in small groups with heat lamps until 3 weeks old when they are moved on to pasture.
They are free to range on paddocks that are rotated regularly to provide them with plentiful fresh grass. They have a portable house to keep them secure from Mr Fox at night. They are never given artificial additives or growth promoters or anti biotics, all that is needed to produce a succulent meaty bird is time and good fresh grass.
We process the geese on the farm, eliminating the need for live transport.. The birds are then made oven ready for our customers and come complete with vacuum packed giblets and cooking instructions. Our geese can be ordered and collected from the farm or we can deliver in Kent.
We have a genuine commitment to the highest standards of animal welfare. We take great care to ensure our geese are treated with the utmost care and have a stress free life from beginning to end.
How Many people does a Goose Serve:
Small (10lb / 4.5kg)4 people
Medium (11-12lb / 5.0-5.5kg) 6 to 8 people
Large (13lb / 6kg) 8 to 10 people

Free Range Rainbow Eggs
We have a flock of 60 Free range layers. They lay a variety of different coloured eggs. Their house is a portable converted trailer, which we move each day to fresh grass. They are protected from predators by electric netting and are able to forage on fresh grass every day. We feed non GM layers pellets and are currently trialling raising feeding our chickens using compost heaps, so they get protein rich natural diet of worms, bugs and grubs.
Eggs from Pasture reared layers are higher in Omega 3 and protein than barn or cage reared eggs, so they are better for you and your family and they taste great too.

Fresh Totally Free Range Duck Eggs - mixed sizes (approx. 1.5 times the size of a chicken egg) £1.50 per half dozen
Free Range Woodland Reared Rare Breed Pork
We raise a small number of Oxford Sandy Black rare breed pigs. OSB’s are great at foraging for their food, love living almost wild in the woods and they produce wonderful tasting and healthy meat. Do you wonder who stole the flavour from meat in the supermarket? Does your bacon swim in the pan with water? Does your crackling not crackle anymore? This is because you are buying intensively raised ‘forced meat’, which has been grown quickly in unnatural conditions, not allowing the pig to develop a nice layer of fat and flavour.
We sell our pigs as half a pig, so you will expect to get approximately 20-25Kgs of prime, free range great tasting pork, with cuts of your choice, to include bacon and sausages if required. You can decide what cuts of meat you want or you can use our standard cuts selection. It all comes packaged and labelled ready for your freezer.
Half of a Free Range OSB woodland reared pig - £160.00
Many of the old varieties of pig almost became extinct across Europe because demand for their meat stopped. By purchasing our Rare Breed OSB pork you help to keep the breed going as it allows us to buy in more piglets and support our breeder.
