The chickens we source are raised free-range on a local farm, where they live on grassy pastures and are allowed to grow slowly. This ensure they are moist and succulent, and that there is no shrinkage when they are cooking. Roasting cockerels are available up to 6kg please telephone for ordering.
The Butcher: With natural flavour and succulence, these whole chickens are perfect for roasting and are a far cry from supermarket offerings.
In The Kitchen: Our roasting chickens are the obvious starting place for a Sunday roast, served with crispy roast potatoes and seasonal vegetables. You’ll probably have some left too, with the delicious leftovers perfect for using during the week.

COCKEREL - TASTY AND ENJOYABLEReviewed by J.m.schafheitle on 20 May 2021
We haven't had a cockerel for a very long time and this one was worth waiting for. Succulent and flavoursome meat and the bones made excellent stock. Worth the cost.
Great!Reviewed by Chrisdale7 on 07 May 2021

Traditional Free Range Chicken
Our free range chickens are sourced from a local farm, Cracknell’s. Jeff and his family have been farming in a traditional sustainable way for over half a century.
All their birds are free range, having unlimited access to 22 acres of grassy Somerset pasture. Birds come onto the farm as day old chicks and remain on the farm throughout their lives. They are processed by Jeff and a small team before being delivered to us.
Cracknell’s chickens are slowly grown and therefore are naturally moist, lean and taste like chicken should do. With no additives or added water there is no shrinkage during cooking. Our customers say Jeff’s chicken tasted like chicken did when they were children.
