Herb Fed Free Range Chicken

The bird industry has taken a hit lately with Avian Influenza and rising costs all round and the search for a tasty ethical bird has found us on many doorsteps.
We work closely with Herb Fed Poultry and after they lost their entire flock we made sure when they were up and running again we were ready to support them by re-stocking their birds on our site. Poultry farmers like Edward and his family need loyalty and support in these troubled times and this is exactly what we love to do here at AM.
Herb Fed Chicken was founded by Edward Wilkinson who wanted to produce ‘a bird with taste’ and he really has achieved this with the highest possible husbandry and welfare standards.
The birds are fed on a cereal-based feed, free from additives and growth promoters which comes from the local mill. Their unique diet also includes over 10 varieties of fresh herbs from his Aunts local herb farm. The only one they do not like is Sage!
They are traditionally farmed, hand-fed, bedded up daily with fresh straw and live in small flocks so they truly are free to forage for food and make use of their natural instincts; being able to peck at the grass, find and eat insects, dust bathe and soak up the sunshine ….. or the rain!
They really are happy birds and pecking through the herbs keeps them occupied and gives them a truly special taste which remains wonderfully moist when cooked.
