Chickens are reared from day old to full Soil Association Standards. These standards exceed those required of free range chicken.
After their move from the brooding room at three weeks or so, the chickens are reared in small groups on grass paddocks.. The paddocks are secured against predators so that the chickens never need to be shut into their houses; they can graze and forage whenever they choose. When possible their diet is supplemented with wheat grown on the farm.
I keep the birds for between 11 1/2 and 20 weeks. They are, therefore, bigger than most and have had time to develop the better flavour that has won them many regular customers.
