Fosse Meadows 81 day slow grown chicken
Fosse Meadows poultry is totally free range and are not fed any growth promoters, they are free to roam the clover rich fields at Stud farm & are fed a diet of maize rich additive-free cereal from a local feed mill which is perfect for slower growing birds – it also cuts down on food miles!
Springfield Organic Poultry
At Springfield Poultry they rear all organic free-range chickens to Soil Association standards by ensuring all our organic poultry is reared in smaller flocks, to ensure a healthier and less stressed bird. By night the chickens are kept indoors, in sheds with natural ventilation and additional exit holes for greater access to the outdoors. But during daylight hours, all the chickens have full access to our Herefordshire fields. As a result of these measures, we know all the chickens are reared to the highest possible farming standard.
