Slow Grown Chicken
FOR MANY YEARS, THE SMALL FARMING FAMILY HAVE GROWN CHICKENS SLOWLY, FREE RANGE, ON SUFFOLK MEADOWS FOR A TRULY DELICIOUS FLAVOUR.
We focus on high welfare; the birds live in small groups with shelter from the elements, in mobile houses that have no artificial lighting and are naturally ventilated.
The chickens roam freely over 40 acres of Suffolk meadows, where they are free to peck, graze and engage in their natural behaviours.
We believe that a slower grown chicken, matured for up to 12 weeks, naturally develops a better quality, fuller flavour and succulence.
The traditional breed we use is a slower growing chicken, grown on average for 10 weeks. We rear our chickens 25% longer than standard free range chickens and 5 weeks longer than indoor chickens.
We believe that food tastes so much better when it has been grown slowly; the traditional way. All the chickens are fed an additive free diet with no antibiotics or hormones. It is because these chickens have more exercise, are grown for longer and have a natural, varied diet that they taste so much better.
