Tasty, lean and versatile, a fridge isn’t complete without a chicken. Crispy skin, succulent meat and all the juices and bones you need for the perfect gravy, a whole chicken will always be a crowd-pleaser. We only sell organic, free-range chicken from birds that have freedom to roam, forage and roost according to their natural instincts. A natural and active life keeps our birds healthy... and delicious!
All of our chicken is properly free range, we also do not source from farms that use ‘quick growing’ breeds meaning they are kept for at least twice as long to mature naturally.
All of our chicken is kept in conditions that allow the birds to express their natural behaviour in a stress free high welfare environment, this gives a deep rich succulent flavour that is incomparable to conventionally raised birds.

We will always aim to deliver your order within the delivery slot requested by you at the time you place your order.
If nobody is available at the primary delivery address (nominated by you at the time you place your order) to take delivery of the order, we will leave notification of the delivery instead either to the secondary delivery address or secure place (nominated by you at the time you place your order).
Our deliveries are made with “no signature required”.

If your delivery is refused or not accepted at a recipients address, we can not take responsibility for this and can not offer a free replacement.

Events outside our control, for example, extreme weather conditions, may occasionally mean we are unable to deliver your goods at the time agreed. In these circumstances, we will contact you as early as possible to rearrange the delivery time. In such an event, our liability to you shall be limited to the price of the goods ordered and the cost of delivery.
